life tip: avoid getting yelled at by ur parents and just dont tell them anything ever
life tip: they’ll yell at you for that too
Life tip: tell them only the things happening in your life that will satisfy them. Let them assume the rest. They will think you are who they want you to be. They will trust you. Then they will leave you alone to do as you please
Half truths are the key to politics
And the key to a peaceful family life
dear caretakers of children: stop telling kids “I don’t care who started it!”. you’re teaching children to ignore unequal power balances. that leads to legitimate belief in things like reverse racism, misandry, heterophobia, etc. you’re teaching children that it’s wrong to retaliate when they are wronged. “who started it” is very, very relevant.
