The EASY Steps to Success
by Suzy Red

1. Know WHO to trust! (Look on any United States coin.)

2. Go to school!
(If you're not there physically, you won't be there mentally.)

and Mentally (If you're not there mentally, you might as well not be there physically.)

3. Graduate as many times as possible! 
(This will be impossible if you haven't followed the first two steps.)

4. Get a job. 
(If you followed the first three steps, you'll know how to please your boss and be a productive worker, and you won't lose a good job because of ignorance.)  This is when you buy cars, homes, clothes, and jewelry! You go on vacations and laugh a lot!  You become an INDEPENDENT person!  This is FUN, FUN, FUN if you've followed the first three steps!

5. Plan your family. ("Plan" is the key here!)

a.  Date

Dating is supposed to give you time to see if the person you are dating has gone through the first 4 steps.  If not, dump him/her!  If they hit you or curse you, DUMP them!  (Those are signals of things to come...count on it.) Remember, dating is NOT intended to be a hands-on experience.

"Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. Lynnette, age 8"

"When they're rich." Pam, age 7
"The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that." Curt, age 7
"The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do." Howard, age 8

b.  Get Married 

c.  Have fun for 4 years

(You've both got jobs, so you can buy your home, go on vacations together, go to movies and out to eat every night--IF you've gone through the steps.  Otherwise, you'll be poor and bored spend all your time trying to figure out how you got yourself into this mess.)

IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? "It's better for girls to be single but
not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them." Anita, age 9

"Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck." Ricky , age 10

"You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming." Alan, age 10

"No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with." Kristen, age 10

d.  Plan for your children.

(This step is HARD!!  One kind of fun--c--will be over.  Count on it.  You won't sleep for 6 years.  You'll have baby spit up on your clothes.  You will spend every waking moment thinking and worrying about your little one or running the child to the doctor.  You might forget to comb your hair, shave, or put on make-up. Having children is NOT for everyone! But, once your PLANNED baby is born after you have gone through the other steps, you and your spouse will be the happiest persons on earth.  Special note:  If everyone followed the advice in this step, the abortion debate would be over.)

HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF 2 PEOPLE ARE MARRIED? You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.-- Derrick, age 8


e. Get mean! "Mean Parents" has wisdom  for every MOTHER and FATHER.  Rules for dating my daughter is an example of the "MEAN PARENTS" who will help assure the success and happiness of their children!

Paul Harvey added some things that are also important to growing up.
