Sometimes children get out of control and its hard for
parents to handle things. On some days one child feels
like you're managing 10. Its easy on some days to wish
you didn't have three or six children and opted to stop
creating new life after only one or two or not at all.
Multiplication System is wall and ceiling
Service men come out and cover every square inch of
ceiling surface in your home from the floor up with
mirrors. CMS Service men may or may not install
strobes and a disco ball.
Suddenly 3 children turns into more children reflections
than any normal parent can handle for very long. Once a
parent adapts (adapts = completely loses their cool)due
to the sensory overload the service men come back to
remove the mirrors from all wall and ceiling surfaces.
Now the parent gets to start feeling grateful that they
only have their original actual amount of children.
That reminds me of a story...
It Could Always be Worse, by Margot Zemach [goldbb, Dec 11 2013]
||There is a more lifelike method called a "slumber
party" where one's progeny invite multitudes of
friends over and no one gets any sleep at all.
||Better to have the squad turn up and remove
the existing children. Permanently.
||We always found that sleepovers made life much easier. Also,
because they're reciprocated children can disappear for days at a
time. It's an example of home ed socialisation.
||On the other hand, the average intelligence of teenagers in a group declines with the size of the group.
||To be fair, the same factor applies to groups
of adult humans.
||// children can disappear for days at a time /
||Or...your children could have children!
