Every generation seems to have a serial killer hyped up by the media. Many of these serial killings could have been prevented if people saw the early warning signs as children. These infamous killers’ violent acts towards people were first directed at animals when they were kids. Notorious murderers including Dennis Rader (BTK Killer), Jeffrey Dahmer (cannibal), Albert DeSalvo (Boston Strangler), and Lee Boyd Malvo (Beltway Sniper) all tortured and killed many animals in their youth. As they got older, they transferred their enjoyment for inflicting pain and murder on people. If parents, teachers, coaches, neighbors, etc. saw the warning signs when these murderers were still children, then they may have been able to prevent the atrocities that were to follow in the years to come.
If you witness animal abuse, report it immediately. YOU may be the one to not only stop the pain of an innocent animal but also save our society from evil bloodshed in the future.
To unspoil a child, they need to learn how to earn the items they want to have. Children need to feel a connect between work and money. One way to teach them this is to pay commissions and not allowances. Therefore they will earn money towards items they want for doing chores and tasks. They will learn that if they work, they will get paid. If they do not work, then they will not get paid. That is the rule for parents in the real world, so it might as well be for kids too.

Newton Parent Testimonial
“I cannot say enough good things about Y3K. The owner has tutored both my son and daughter through elementary, middle, and now high school. His skill, warmth and flexibility have enabled both of my children to address their challenges and achieve their goals. He is engaging and knowledgeable across subjects, and is also able to teach study habits and organization skills, even when there is resistance! 🙂 He is a complete professional, and willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to attend school meetings as an articulate advocate. He has had a truly significant influence on my children’s academic success and self esteem, and has been a great resource for me as a single parent. His dedication, humor, and abilities as a teacher make him not only an extremely gifted tutor, but also an excellent mentor and role model for my young teens. I give Y3K my highest recommendation!”
