Last week, my wife and I started a 12 part seminar on personal finances. This program is for those of us who want to increase independence, become unified as a family in temporal matters, and improve personal responsibility.

So it’s another weekend and your kid is clinging to your pants leg, begging you for money to buy that candy bar/toy/video game they’ve had their eye on.

I received a recent email from a gentleman named Will. He suggested covering the topic of how to teach proper financing to your kids. This is a topic that I’m not sure ever being discussed on any other Manosphere sites I’ve frequented so let’s dig in! Continue reading “Teaching Finances to Kids”
This is part two of a multi-part series which discusses a method Ben Franklin used to develop his character as a man. Last week, I covered the first two. Today we’ll go over the next three: Resolution, Frugality, Moderation. Franklin provided a quick explanation that I’ll provide as well as my own interpretation, as well as how to employ these virtues in your life, and how it relates to red pill theory as a whole.
