In An Ideal World
I'd be beautiful and wealthy in an ideal world. But face it, that ain't gonna happen.
Every child needs to come with a control panel. A control panel and a user instruction manual. Its ridiculous to give us total responsibility for a living creature and no training or anything. Ridiculous, seriously.
Wouldn't it be great if they had control panels?
On/Off switch, of course. This would be available, but hopefully would go unused. On, you have a living creature. Off, you have a doll.
Volume control. An absolute MUST HAVE option. It would include a mute button, of course.
Stand-by Mode. Same as being asleep, but will perk up immediately upon being awakened.
Reset Button. Basically, a do-over. Child has made a great mistake and heads will roll, unless the reset button is pushed.
Upgrade Button. As child matures, different options are made available.
I suspect there may be a lot more options needed that I haven't thought of, but this is what might work.
