If the child will not adhere to policy, you isolate it from the world. Has this been done? No.
Satan? He is the left hand. Michael and the arcs, they are the right. God is the brain controlling ALL of the fingers.
The child's father is not responsible for the child's behavior. We are all born with the knowledge of good and evil, of "god" and "satan." WE CHOOSE. WE ARE RESPONSIBLE.
EDIT: Repeat after me. "I choose. I am responsible. Nobody is to blame for my actions except myself, for I have created all of the actions I have done in my life."
All god did was create the world. There's nothing bad about it because God is a perfect creator.

Yes, many here will say all kinds of things against, and judge, but if the highest of above doesn't do it, what gives the ones here the right?
I am speaking, as this is a good example, if Michael doesn't slander anyone, not even what others perceive as the worst of the worst, why does man do it?
Everyone is taught these things. Nobody who doesn't know them is held accountable. You wouldn't prosecute a toddler for accidentally taking something from a store without anyone noticing until the cashier saw it, would you? I wouldn't, personally. I would probably say "Excuse me, sweetie, I'm going to have to take that. You can't have it unless you pay for it." ...But that's just me.
Does it matter if it is born or learned? Knowing right from wrong doesn't make you who you are. It matters what you choose.
If they were born with such knowledge, why would this be necessary? Were you never taught not to steal the cookie or taught not to lie when you were younger? You just automatically knew?
(PhysOrg.com) -- The currently prevailing theory on human development is that human beings start their lives with a "moral blank state," but new research contradicts this view. The researchers have found babies as young as six months old already make moral judgments, and they think we may be born with a moral code hard-wired into our brains.

In one experiment babies between six and ten months old were repeatedly shown a puppet show featuring wooden shapes with eyes. A red ball attempts to climb a hill and is aided at times by a yellow triangle that helps it up the hill by getting behind it and pushing. At other times the red ball is forced back down the hill by a blue square.
After watching the puppet show at least six times the babies were asked to choose a character. An overwhelming majority (over 80%) chose the helpful figure. Prof. Bloom said it was not a subtle statistical trend as “just about all the babies reached for the good guy.”
In another experiment the babies were shown a toy dog puppet attempting to open a box, with a friendly teddy bear helping the dog, and an unfriendly teddy thwarting his efforts by sitting on him. After watching at least half a dozen times the babies were given the opportunity to choose one of the teddy bears. The majority chose the helpful teddy.
actually, there are studies now confirming that babies DO know the difference...and that they show empathy.
In a neonatal ward, if one baby cries, others will cry.
With pre-toddlers and toddlers, a puppet show of one taking something from another elicits brainwaves that indicate "moral objection." Same with giving a reward to the "selfish" puppet - brainwaves show "unjust objection."
No. I'm saying that babies are BORN with a sense of justice and compassion, right and wrong.
It isn't just parenting.
BUT, parenting can DESTROY that inborn altruism; or support it.
