"A Father's Guide to Raising Daughters Right" was inspired by conversations I had with my daughter Teresa and deals with topics like reading & music, work & leisure, beauty & modesty, tradition & modernity, patriarchy & feminism, even sex & marriage--yeah, I totally went there. I even provided a parental to-do-list and some great book suggestions! And don't forget to check out the very important P.S. at the bottom of this blog!

P.S. This video doesn't include conversations about our daughter Samantha (RIP). While I lament having failed to include her mottos of "Never Give Up" & "Keep On Smiling," it was my intent to limit this video to subjects resulting from conversations I had with Teresa. That decision was partly to do with the fact that I've already made a number of videos (here & here) focused specifically on Samantha--I'm even writing a book about her life & death with childhood cancer!--but part of that also had to do with my having yet to tell a story strictly about her, about our friendship and the life that we live now. This is a strictly parental consideration, fueled (at least in part) by the fact that my kids actually listen to my show... and they keep track of mentions! It's for this reason (and others) that I decided to focus solely on Teresa, and why an upcoming video about fighting & sports will focus on stories pertaining to my son Athanasius. Plus, some of these "missing mentions" will be included in a collection of stories, speeches, lectures, and podcasts I'm publishing, entitled, "Paleocrat Diaries."
