Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cow Boys (or Girls)

A disturbing trend we are seeing in this age of decadence is the increase in obesity rates.  While it is bad enough that grown adults are consuming too much junk food and pairing it with a sedentary lifestyle, they are likewise subjecting their children to the same fate.

Can we honestly say we are surprised by this revelation however?  As the left pushes agendas such as “fat acceptance” and “beautiful at any size” the repercussions are trickling down to our very children. Continue reading “Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cow Boys (or Girls)”

The Need to Fly Solo

Marriage can be tricky at times because you are constantly around your wife, especially if you have kids.  I’ve noticed a fundamental flaw in a majority of married men and its that they spend all of their free time with their wife and children.  Being there for them as a provider and protector is part and parcel of being a father/husband, but you need to spend time by yourself.  We’ll go over what happens when you don’t have time for yourself, things you can do when you’re alone to have a positive impact on your life, and how to assert your wants/needs in your relationship without having to get into an argument.

The Nine Noble Virtues of Fatherhood: Part 1

I feel that all men need something higher than themselves to believe in.  Religion works for some guys and even though I am not part of any religion, I understand its usefulness and why it’s needed in the world. I have found that there is a modern group of people who have tried to revive pagan Norse mythology and religion in the form of Odinism.  While I do not consider myself an Odinist, I have found that their Nine Noble Values can be revamped for any guy, and specifically a red pilled father.

Raising Daughters

“…I’ve made it my business to observe fathers and daughters. And I’ve seen some incredible, beautiful things. Like the little girl who’s not very cute – her teeth are funny, and her hair doesn’t grow right, and she’s got on thick glasses – but her father holds her hand and walks with her like she’s a tiny angel that no one can touch. He gives her the best gift a woman can get in this world: protection. And the little girl learns to trust the man in her life. And all the things that the world expects from women – to be beautiful, to soothe the troubled spirit, heal the sick, care for the dying, send the greeting card, bake the cake – all of those things become the way we pay the father back for protecting us…”
