5. Unnatural fascination with the BooBahs. (Daily)

If your child exhibits 5 or more of these warning signs,
a course of medical
psychiatric treatment in addition to the behavior modification and aversion
therapy is suggested.
If left untreated, it has been statistically proven
that many of these
children will grow up to be drug addicts, repeat offenders, and welfare
