What Father’s Day Means to Me

Father’s Day for me is always a list of questions. For example, how can the fatherless write anything good about fatherhood? Ask for a positive vibe, joyful word, or quirky rhyme, and all I once could offer in response was numb bewilderment. I had learned the hard way that sharing my experiences can be like a bulldozer to those unprepared to hear about them. Fatherlessness is what Father’s Day once meant ...

The goal of Christian homeschooling is to equip kids with a holistic thinking toolbox. This requires some form of structure and a ton of nurturing. The best educational outcomes are achieved by utilising what is known as transdisciplinary learning. This is, explains Polytechnic, ‘the integration of knowledge into some meaningful whole.’ Home educators are not raising specialists in a given field (narrow disciplinary learning). The same can be said about insulated ...

The Necessity of Resilience

Like a Marine, a dad is the first vanguard in their child’s life. Dads are a child’s first superhero. This is why the world needs men who refuse -- come hell or high water --  to go out on the devil’s terms. Put simply, the world needs resilient dads. Dads who bounce back from life’s roundhouse kicks, saying with the best of them: “Semper Fi.” Fathers who choose to remain always ...
