March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

But that's not as easy as simply yelling at their children to over-acheive and make them do the things that they they either failed at or never had the time/ability/courage to try.

Oh, God, I'm going to be a horrible parent.... you just described how I've lived my life, but without the children. May my uterus be burned.

Well, that all depends on how you raise your children. Many people live their lives with some kind of regret, myself included, it's how you act on that that matters.

Soccer Moms take that regret, and with good intent, try to ensure their children never have to feel that way themselves. But it backfires and and they just end up controlling their kids lives and making them miserable.

Others try to overcome their regrets through other ways such as therapy or trying to make up for whatever they feel they missed out on, in the present.

Those aren't necessarily mutually exclusive, though. I had just started going to a therapist to figure out why I'm a control freak, and yet I still haven't had the chance to mentally harm the child/children I may/may not have.

Don't you also have to account for the children who had the 'soccer mom' type parent? It can end up recycling throughout the generations with the mother being to controlling from having a lax upbringing, and the child thus solving their rigorous upbringing with passive parenting skills.

Of course there's always going to be people like that whose parenting skills are based solely on that of their own parents, good or bad. There's many factors that can cause it, anf each situation is different.

Plus, there are many women who view the negative soccer mom stereotypes as a postive.

Why Rachel, I wasn't aware you thought so much about the issue of parenting. Got any plans?

If i ever have a baby, i'm gonna let it be a free-range baby, and it's just gonna crawl around and learn. learn the way i did, that THE BUNNY NIGHT LIGHT IS NOT YOUR FRIEND!
pixel
Neither are the non-bunnies; they'll all leach away all layers of your skin for a horrible and permanent deformity (my poor precious hand, it's okay precious). I like the free-range baby, but I had a free-range brother who dreamed he was Superman and woke up while falling from the top bunk. I'd be afraid of him as a child. And fear for the carpet. Ewwww...

I feel that unattended children in public places should be tied together and sold in bulk.

I work in retail where there's many loud children. So I agree. But only if they're kept in the back where the bailer will drown out their pulings.

I was thinking a clear soundproof room. So that people could pick which bundles they want. And also include variety packs, filled with children of differing races.

Could children pick out other children, as siblings? It'd be like a post-modern masochistic neo-slavetrading festival.

Maybe if they'd be sold individually, but for now they are sold in bulk, to pass savings onto the consumer. Buying 6 kids for the price of 4 is a steal.

No it isn't, because unless you starve them (which, in the end would be a detriment considering how much you'd paid for the labor), they'll eat their worth plus some in food alone. And let's not forget the rags you'll have to don them in every couple of months.


And my head? My head is in the vice grip of an ear infection, which won't leave me because I seem to be so much akin to it (by causing people pain without even trying, really). Which makes the screams even more piercing. Maybe a sound-proofed encased bailer would do the trick. Yes, I do like that...

How about we keep a few of the 'pretty' ones in a seperate area and charge more for them? I think the youngest ones (prior to walking) should fetch about the same amount as the elder ones... they might not be able to do the back-breaking work for a few years, but they seem to be in high demand (just look at the adoption situation right now, everyone wants these little things that can't do anything but babble and shit their own diapers)...

the mid-ranged ones would have to go for less of a selling price, let's bundle them togeather and do the "Buy 2, Get 1" deals... oooohhh, and if they aren't selling very well, how about just "Buy 1, Get 1"??? Then the random bundle packs for super cheap...

Nope. All things posted become the intellectual (or non-intellectual depeding on the context) of Square-Haven: The Venerable Square-Enix Resource.

I will somehow find you fallible in this. After all, that's the only thing lawyers are good for - loopholes.

Wait a minute... wasn't there a movie that had to do with lawyers being the Antichrist? Ahaha... I think it was Keanu Reeves and Pacino (???) :huh: ?

the devils advocate?

Probably. I just saw a few minutes of it where the room was going crazy and he was yelling about not being the guys son, who was at the moment, saying "I is the devil!"

That was a good movie. Naked Charlize Theron!
