Be a Man. Be a Father. Go Dad Mode. | I’m a first time dad and have no idea what I’m doing. Fortunately, no one does, so we’re all in this together. Let’s chat. | It’s more difficult than ever to raise normal, level-headed children in this politically correct, everyone gets a trophy, “if you serve my child high fructose corn syrup I’ll sue your ass” society. Our goal should be to raise humble and hardworking individuals instead of the self-entitled princess or douche bags that our culture has been churning out recently. On Dad Mode, we’ll discuss the ways we might achieve said goal and the roadblocks that will be in our way.
