No one in New Orleans will show you boobs in exchange for beads. Well, maybe some really drunk tourist at Tropical Isle. Never say never kid.

This article made me think of this thread. Specifically in the context of a question I've been wondering about for years. How much does parenting style matter? Assuming you meet your kids' basic needs and don't traumatize them, a lot of life outcomes turn out to be genetic. Twin studies and such largely support the idea that genetics is more important than environment for most of the sorts of things middle class 21st century western parents worry about.

Just keep them alive, healthy, and socialized. They should be able to do what is expected of an adult in your society before the time you're too old to take care of them.

Also, Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Best life lesson: Don't have kids. If you want kids, adopt.

Best life Lesson: home school and get a free BA by 18, and MA by 20 as you’re working. Keep working and FIRE by 25. Start whatever it is you really want to explore as everyone else is just starting their corporate slog.

And yeah, don’t have kids :lol:
