In the last couple of weeks Nancy Reagan passed away. I watched the funeral and heard that Mrs Reagans daughter did not have a great relationship with her daughter. Its sad to hear that this is the case. Here are my thoughts on having a good relationship with your kids.
Being a parent of kids is challenging and maybe even tougher in some ways today then in the past. One of the tough things to deal with is kids using not so great language, however I am not to worried about that part. If kids are exposed to it, it can be like a vaccination for future usage. Also what king of items should you buy once, versus buying a cheap version and buying another in the future?

Part of being a parent is dealing with punishment and consequences. The question is, does punishment deter future bad activity? Also when is a good age to have the talk and what is a good resource to use for this.
I admire entrepreneurship and want to instill this into my kids. I set up a lemonade stand with my kids and walked them through the whole process of buying supplies, making a sign and setting up the stand. He also had to interact with his customers and it was a real success. Here is my review of what happened.
I am very saddened by the attacks in Belgium. One of the toughest aspects is telling your children about evil and war in the world. Here I talk about ways I do it.
In light of the recent elections I am addressing the issue of college and what we can do to fix it. In part two I discuss what libertarian podcasts I listen too.

Sometimes kids will obfuscate right to your face and it is rather bothersome to see it happening. On the other hand I admire entrepreneurship and attempt to instill it in my own kids. Here is how.

In this episode I address two concerns. The first thing is that I know that in this modern world we think that things are pretty bad and granted there are definitely some things that are bad. However there are also amazing things happening right now all over the world. The second part I talk about is about how to help your kids eat their food.

In the news there was a story of a woman who called the cops on her son who was misbehaving. Granted he was 8 or something. I consider this rather bad parenting. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ga-mom-scares-disobeying-10-year-old-son-arrested-article-1.2207371
I also talk about how important fathers are to the development of children.
