What do you think, I-A-B? Was Frank Zappa right about crazy vs. boring children? He might have a point...

This is true, if I had dollar for every time my Mom said, "why can`t you be like your cousin". My pasty colored dough ball of cousin who used to sit quietly, without blinking till she heard the dinner call then she enthusiastically waddled to the table.
While I was a blur with both my knee bleeding with filthy stains on my white lace frock. Things have not changed.

Yeah I`m gonna take parenting advice from Frank f*cking Zappa! He was probably fried out of his mind when he said this.

If you don`t beat your children, you hate them.

It`s not a matter of discipline. A good child is a stupid child. Smart kids are always stirring up some kind of trouble.

parenting is simple...use this theory (age/discipline tool)
1 - 5 = Eyes
6 - 10 = Mouth
11 - 18 = Hands

unfortunately most parents use this theory backwards..

"Would you take parenting advice from someone who names their kids Moon Unit and Dweezil? "

More than I would from 18yo Jason and his 16yo girlfriend Ashleigh with their child "Kaelie" or "Emilea" or whatever other dumbass fake misspelled name they can think of.

I think that is bull

Parenting is a balance between being strict and being open. You don`t punish them for being kids, but neither do you reward them for bad behavior.

Control is viewed differently... a quite child has a loud personality around the right crowds!

I was a boring child.

I was boring because of all the books I read.
I was boring because I watched and listened instead of barking out idiot opinions without forethought.
I was boring because other people don`t know what to do with an introverted kid, because other people take their entertainment socially, and can`t understand what it is to enjoy silence; because the silence around them is just more of what they have going on inside, under the noise.

And you can be sure I`m not the only one here.

Yeah....make sure to pick goofy names for your kids like "Moon Unit" and "Dweezil."

Getting beaten up in school builds character!

Although I love Frank Zappa`s music, you have to keep in mind that he was always trying to be funny and controversial. In fact, I agree that a "boring" child shows a lack of intelligence and natural curiosity. However, there is a big difference between an intelligent child who is creative, quirky, original, and certainly non-boring in a good way, versus an animal-like, destructive, non-boring child creature who hits other kids because he is too stupid to express his feelings or frustrations with words. A non-boring child can be good or bad. A boring child is just neutral. I`d take a weird kid over a boring kid any day, but I`d take either of them over a destructive, mean kid.

My favorite Zappa quote.
"Interviewer: "So Frank, you have long hair. Does that make you a woman?"
FZ: "You have a wooden leg. Does that make you a table?"
