How To Punish People’s Children And Go Scot Free

September 23, 2020

Welcome, my fellow evil person. Like you, I used to experience the inexplicable urge of wanting to punish people’s children and getting away with it.

Me, whenever I see people’s children.

But now I have found love and joy, and now I no longer feel that urge. I know you still do, otherwise you would not be here. This post will rid you of that urge.

I’m actually very serious about my deliverance. In my evil days, I wrote this: 11 Secret Ways To Punish The Last Born In Your Family. But look at me today.

Before anything, breathe in deeply. Now let it out, sweetie. Don’t hold back. Repeat that three times, preferably with your eyes closed, your mind picturing sweetness and joy.

Open your eyes.

Now ask yourself:

1. What did this innocent child do to me?

Because, really, what could a child do to you that would warrant this desire to punish them and go scot free?

2. Is punishment the answer?

Think well oh. Because they punished you when you were child, I know, and look how you turned out.

3. Why can’t I report to the parents?

Abi?

4. Am I really that bitter and vile to want to punish other people’s children?

Not just punish them, but also want to get away with punishing them. Ahan. Who hurt you?

Start confessing all your evil deeds.

5. If this was how other people punished me, would I be alive today?

Reason it well o, floggermania. You that your chosen system of government is punish-o-cracy.

Now that you are done thinking about it, oya, go and apologise to that child, and let all bitterness depart from you.

If you think I give really bad good advice, then you should read this:
