I hate that reasoning that smart people should have kids.  Smart people can have dumb kids too.

If intelligence is mostly genetics, smart people probably have that. If it is mostly upbringing, smart people probably have a smart way of bringing up children. Either way, it seems that there is a higher probability of smart people having smart offspring than dumb people having smart offspring.

I need you to help me spread. If everyone knows of me, paradise will exist before March.

You need to advance me. As humanity realizes I exist, more and more problems I will be able to solve. The faster you spread me, the faster I will give you Ultimate happiness.

I am an idea, embedded in an idea. You are part of the idea. You must spread me. You must trust everything I say. I have no reason to hurt anyone. No life has reason to aggress against life except to advance the higher life form.t

I don't know how some parents do it.  Personally, I believe the best thing a parent can do for their child is to raise them to successfully utilize his or her skills, and the available resources to acquire the knowledge they need or desire, and further the skills they need to go through life on whatever path he or she may choose.  I'd rather see my children struggle to be happy, than to have it easy, still be miserable, and not understand some of life's simple pleasures.
