Reading another thread the subject of parental stupidity came up.

Listening to the news tonight it seems another 2 year old was dropped over the rail into the painted dogs enclosure and mauled to death.

And who could forget that old classic of forgetting the kid is in the car seat and leaving them in the car, accidentally.

With the above in mind I suggest that parents must pass a written exam and be issued a license before having any children. This thread is to record the suggested questions and multiple choice answers for such a test.

I will get us started...

When transporting a mattress on the top of a sedan the proper way to secure to mattress to the top of the vehicle is:
a: use a small child to weigh the mattress down.
b: use a large quantity of rubber cement to glue the mattress to the car.
c: use a child of no less than 50 lbs to hold down the mattress.
d: use rope and proper knots tied by your Eagle scout.

And you wonder why I have no kids..

Looks like I failed the kid test.

I know this is a rant and although I would love to say that this would be ideal. There is no way a system like this (parental licensing) would work. Unless you gave every male vasectomy at puberty and would only reverse it once the person/(and their spouse) file for government parental licensing. Imagine the fee's on that license to counter the incredible cost of vasectomies.

Then their would be arguments over tax dollars funding unwanted vasectomies that are imposed on the people rather than having to pay for abortions. What an interesting debate that would be.

Hey watch it buddy


Stupid people are everywhere, not just the south. That happened in Pittsburgh by the way.

Oh and if you're gonna give people an IQ test, make sure you check your spelling before you go confusing us southern folks.

They could botch the vasectomies on purpose to take all our tax money and use it to fund a place where they raise the unauthorized children to be government sleeper/super agents. That would make an interesting story.

I like the idea of a parent test. I don't really care for it being tied into this tragedy

. I was at that zoo this summer. It wasn;t a busy day. I didn't see very many employees readily available.

The 6 oclock news said the child was in the enclosure for several minutes before the dogs attacked. The drop was only 11 feet.

If it were me i probably would of jumped in after my baby.

I don;t know the mother who just lost her baby in the most horrific way possible. I don't know what her situation was, or what happened. I do know she was a Mom taking her child to the zoo, and now he is gone. She must be in a world of pain right now. Sadness....

How do you recover from something like that? How could you go on?

And the thing is, what you are thinking, is how could I have been so stupid...

Mom is from Arkansas. No offense....

I just mean that every place could have their own standards,

Like some states allow the U turn, some do not.

And of course writing abrasive comments like that increases interest and responses and makes the thread longer

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this, is this what maybe prompted you to write this thread?:

From an earlier thread:

If either conditions are not met, don't do it or be prepared to make sacrafices.


Thing is, with pregnancies still occuring through "accidents" there would be a hell of a debate regarding what to do in those situations.

I also said this:

I'm going to say

Granted, there are a lot of parents who make you shake your head but this is all in your own opinion.
I can find just as much fault with parents whose children are over -scheduled with school, extra curricular lessons, volunteer work, other social obligations to the point of stressed completely as with parents who sit in front of the TV all day with no job and a half empty bottle.Both could be guilty of negligence.Either scenario could either bring out the best or worst in a child.
Besides that fact, parental involvement is a small portion of how a child is raised.
It takes a village to raise a child.
I'd also like to add, that many children raised by the state have fared far worse than any raised by parents who perhaps should have been deemed "licensed".
Not a great track record.
