It's Not the Parents' Fault
While reading El Reg today, I saw that having children lowers your IQ. Yeah yeah, I know, it's only one study and it needs to be confirmed, and all that jazz. But it does explain why so many people think their little hellions are perfect angels, doesn't it? And now anyone who's decided they don't want to have kids can tell their parents they just don't want to turn stupid.
And the parents will of course fall for it, because they've had at least one kid, and are thus dumber than driveway gravel.
