Post-Modern Child-rearing Practices

From Eurozine: Manual for postmodern childrearing:

“Be suspicious of all forms of progress displayed by the child and question its origin and the oppressive underlying ideology. Operate on the basis of necessity rather than meaningfulness, and encourage the child to renounce all outward distinctions such as cakes or scholarships. Do allow sweets from strangers.”

This is just one example, but the piece itself is hilarious. I swear, sometimes it’s too easy to mock post-modernism. But my favorite?

“If your child accuses you of incomprehensibility, then accuse it of logical positivism.”
