Hey, Man-Hating, Nerve-Grating Feminists: Good Fathers Are Irreplaceable

I have two twentysomething daughters who’re currently taking over the planet. When these female charges popped out of their mommy’s womb, this thing called “responsibility for their upbringing” hit me like a Jackie Chan punch. I didn’t slough off my role in their lives onto my wife, my church, public school, day care, relatives, TV, […]

Happy Father’s Day. A vital day.

I’ve never been a big fan of these “Hallmark holidays”, as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day have been accused of being. But I acknowledge they have served some purpose besides just making mom and dad feel good. For me it’s the importance of fatherhood as distinct from motherhood. It’s a different as could be.

Parents: Hone Your Kid’s BS Detector!

Tiger Mother, Meet Lion Dad!

I have not yet read what Tiger Mother Amy Chua penned in her book regarding why Chinese mothers blow western moms away in raising sharp, solid kids, but having just gotten back from the mall I’m already siding with Chua. Western kids are, by and large, becoming frickin’ animals (at least that’s how they are […]

How Dads Can Avoid Billy Ray’s Regrets

I can’t imagine watching a video of my 18-year-old daughter on TV, high as a kite, sucking on a bong, speaking gibberish, posing for semi-nude photos and laying all over a bunch of tweenage horndogs attempting to imitate an episode of Skins while knowing that there’s pretty much nothing I can do about her bad […]
