Family Integrity, submitted by Hammy Burton. Kids these days are influenced by media to do dangerous things and hurt themselves. But this New Zealand church has the answer to stop kids from getting hurt that way: hurting them.

If the child is angry after the smack (slamming doors, pouting, etc.), you have not smacked hard enough, for the foolish rebellion is still there manifesting itself: it has not yet been dislodged from the heart. Point this out to the child and give him or her the opportunity to get rid of the rest of the rebelliousness himself, for other wise you will have to administer another smack. After the smack there are cuddles and prayer, at which time the child is very open, teachable and receptive. Here is the time to reason with words of instruction and encouragement.

God wants you to beat the hell out of your children until they can't protest anymore. What, are you going to argue with God? Why he ought to give you such a smack...

    The Upper Kitchen Cabinet Where Your Roommate Keeps His Food: You’ll 'need the footstool' to reach your roommate’s 'fine selection' of 'stale cereal,' but he'll never notice if 'only a little is missing from each box.' Feel less guilty by reminding yourself that Jeff 'acts weird around your girlfriend,' and always 'asks about her.' What a 'creep.'
