Extra Credit Letter
My Dear Unborn Angel,
I am currently taking a class that taught me a lot about you and how I should treat you. I loved this class because it is about real life, neither like mathematics nor like languages; it made me gain some pre-experiences about having a baby. Let me tell you a little bit about the things I have learned during this last 3 months. First, I will keep not having bad habits my whole life not just for my health but for yours as well, moreover, I do not want to be a bad example for you. This means that I will not drink alcohol during my pregnancy because it can end up as a Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and affect you: you might have a mental retardation. I do not smoke and I do not intend to do so because you could have a low birth weight, sudden infant death syndrome, and some other illnesses in your lungs. I promise you I will not consume any teratogens and I will make attention that you do not sleep on your stomach at night. In addition, I plan to have you when I am between 20 and 30 years old because I will be ready for you in that time and I will avoid the chance of having you healthy. I rather give normal birth to you because it might be a once in a lifetime experience for me and I want to be satisfied with it. Additionally, it would be better for your health. Once you come to life, the doctors will make the Apgar Test to see how healthy you are, which I hope to have positive results. My dear baby, I do not want to write about the bad things that might happen to you but the good ways I learned to raise you. Once you come to life, I will teach your father how to be an authoritative parent and we will use that method to raise you. This means that you would have some limits but we will be there to listen to you and I promise you that we will be somewhat flexible. I am a believer of Freud’s psychoanalytic theory so I will not be very strict during your potty training because I do not want you to be fixated on the Anal Stage...
