In regard to comments concerning school lunches, it looks as though some parents want their kids to eat what they want to and also kids are equal to their teachers as far as making decisions.
Please add the following things to the list. Be sure to buy them the latest smart phone, more video games,keep the Facebook account open and please let them spend more time on the computer. Take away the bike so they can't exercise. Don't let them walk or ride the bus to school. Check with Obama Care to be sure it covers diabetes, knee and hip replacement, heart disease and clogged arteries.
Don't be home when the girlfriend or boyfriend comes over; that would invade their privacy. Build onto the house to accommodate the extra ones you will be feeding. This will help a contractor. Keep on good terms with the grandparent, they usually end up helping out.
Letting kids make their own decisions will open up a whole new avenue for you. You will get to know Judge William Logan, Attorney Charles Ramsey plus everyone in the court system. You can expect visits from a law enforcement officer on a regular basis. You will get to meet other parents in the hall outside the courtroom and the list of opportunities go on and on. And lastly, please don't make them get a job, and get ready to babysit.
