Pills for chills

When I was little, sometimes when I couldn't sleep, I'd go out to my parents and say "I can't sleep, can I have a sleeping pill?"

They'd say OK, kiddo, and give me a little mineral pill, and say "now don't forget, it works better if you relax". And I'd go to bed and sleep.

Jeeeez! What sort of idiotic parent would encourage that sort of scenario???
Great parental example - NOT!!!

This teaches children what, exactly?

I KNOW kids don't come with an instruction manual for parents, but I sometimes wonder whether people who seem to lack basic, simple common sense are the best people to be passing on their genes?

What really grinds my gears are parents who teach their children it's okay to abuse punctuation.
