Study: Parents Who Don't Know How to Read Instructions May Make Bad Decisions
According to a new study on GamePolitics, new parental chips on gaming consoles are being tested with a high failure rate - as high as forty-seven percent. This arises not from a problem with the software itself but with parental inability to read the instructions, displayed clearly on screen, no doubt in large, friendly letters.
This begs the obvious question: we know that one in four adults read no books last year (the rest read Harry Potter), but how can parents who could not, by any standard, pass a reading comprehension test make objective decisions for their family?
The solution, as depicted in the study:
Just hold this position for the child's formative years and everything will be fine. If you have more than four children you're pretty much screwed.
