First, the main thing:

It’s easy to raise children if you are smart, and three or more children. It is always more difficult to raise two or one children. Make the right decisions!
Children must be dealt with by the children themselves. The system is simple: any junior obeys any senior. Each senior is fully and always responsible for any junior. All! Continue reading
