How To Be An Adult

I describe in this video the clearest explanation I've ever heard of what it means to be an adult. Being an adult is more than NOT being a child. Bonus quote from Thomas Jefferson: "Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give the earth itself and all it contains, rather than do an immoral act. And never suppose, that in any possible situation, or under any circumstances, it is best for you to do a dishonorable thing, however slightly so it may appear to you." This is where I first read about the 3 levels (Language warning): https://markmanson.net/how-to-grow-up

How To Be An Adult

The War On Boys

The Marine Corps Field Manuel has a section called "The Will To Survive". What do you do if you're captured and things seem hopeless? It says to remember: "I am an American fighting for freedom, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America." In other words, remember your purpose. Why are there more school shootings? Why is there so much depression, destruction and drifting of young boys today? Boys are lacking purpose. www.SlaterRadio.com "Raising a Modern-Day Knight": http://amzn.to/2Hcu9pY

Could You Murder Someone?

It's The Dads

Cicero wrote, “The first bond of society is marriage; the next, our children; then the whole family and all things in common.” So, if there’s a breakdown somewhere in society (School shootings, gang violence, general chaos and disrespect) look to the root causes of that breakdown - the “first bonds of society”. When Senator Moynihan in 1965 wrote “The Negro Family: A Case for National Action” 25% of black kids were born without a dad. And it was a call to action! Today, it’s 72%. How sad is that! Of all races, 72% of adolescent murderers grew up without fathers. 60% of all rapists. 70% of juveniles in state institutions grew up in single- or no-parent house. And these are kids with NO dads. The rest maybe had dads who were “present”, but were absent or violent or alcoholic or whatever. Poverty is not a predictor of crime. It’s lack of dads

On Eating Horse Manure When Your Team Wins

Police Officer adopts opioid-addicted newborn

The story of Ryan Holets, the police officer President Trump honored at the SOTU. Original headline, "Police officer adopts homeless mother's opioid-addicted newborn". AMAZING STORY! Every American needs to hear this. I want to be as good of a man as Ryan Holets. https://tinyurl.com/y8yz8jkd

Help! How Do I Not Raise Entitled Kids??

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPtkn3fJQBI I have a concern as a parent. I don't want to give Jack too comfortable of a life. It's so odd, we work so hard to provide for our family, but what if we make life TOO comfortable>? No kid has ever lived with as much material prosperity as we have today. No one ever. That sandwich you kid ate this afternoon - the bread, the meats, the cheeses, the pickle, the mayonnaise and mustard - the most powerful kings in history couldn't eat a sandwich like that. How do I get my kids to appreciate that! Ben Sasse has a great part of his book The Vanishing Ameican Adultabout his kids thinking Air Conditioning was a necessity of life. How could they survive without it?! The same way everyone did until the last 40 years. The owner of a steakhouse in NYC was on Fox & Friends and was asked about finding good employees. He said it's hard to find wait staff. They used to be SERVANTS. But today they have a greater sense of entitlement, "They're not used to w...
