MOSCOW, April 24. / TASS /. The self-isolation regime, designed to stop the spread of coronavirus infection, has locked people in their homes: people who used to be at work for most of their lives now spend a lot of time with their families. The author of "Harmful Advice for Naughty Children" Grigory Oster, in an interview with TASS, told how to "pacify" naughty adults during a pandemic.
How to touch parents
Grigory Oster in an interview with TASS agreed that now adults cannot take a break from children at work, and children have to behave differently. In this case, the writer has prepared two harmful advice for the little residents of the house to choose from. For example, he suggested that they hide from the instructions of the older generation in the closet.
"If you decide in the morning / Behave well, / Behave yourself in the closet / And dive into the darkness. / There is no mom, no dad. / Only daddy's pants. / No one will shout loudly: /" Stop it! Do not dare! Don't touch it! "/ It will be much easier there, / Without interfering with anyone, / Decent yourself all day / And conduct yourself decently," Oster said.
For those children who are not looking for easy ways, the writer advises to behave badly in the morning, so that by evening the parents will be moved by the sudden silence.
"There is a sure way to please adults: / In the morning, start yelling and littering, / Eavesdropping, whimpering, running around the house, / Lie and beg for gifts from everyone. / Be rude, cheat, tease and lie, / And by the evening, suddenly, stop at hour, - / And immediately, with a moved smile, / All the adults will look over your head / And say that you are a wonderful boy, / And there is no child more pleasant than you, "the writer shared.
As Oster told the agency, parents can be encouraged not only with exemplary behavior once a day, but also with practical help. Although dads now work mainly remotely, girls can still improve the moment and try to prepare a business suit for them "on the way out".
"If your daddy's shirt / You decided to iron, / And a little shirt / Your shirt is burnt, / You can use scissors / From an unnecessary shirt / Prepare for dad / Handkerchiefs," the author explained.
As Oster said, he is not afraid of his sense of humor in the current situation, but worries about something else. "Seriously, seriously. It so happens that adults, whom their children are very" got ", begin to wean their children from something. And this is terrible," he explained.
According to the writer, it will not work to wean a child from something, this can only harm. He suggested that adults teach children what is good, if possible, by their own example. But just in case, if the parents think otherwise, he prepared "harmful advice" for young readers.
"For example, they want to wean you from grimacing, / Loudly nonsense to shout, whimper and spit. / Pull cats by the tails. Girls by their braids, / Ask wild questions to strangers. / Kick everyone in a row, eat porridge with your hands / And show your tongue to grandmother and mother. / It is difficult, but they can succeed. / Be ready then to learn everything anew, "the author concluded.
