Do you read to your kids, only to find your mind wanders to more pressing subjects? You need some caffeine just to keep from nodding off. So the crayons quit (then wrote cutesy letters that are barely legible).
What does anyone gain from that?
The kids like it, sure, and that’s good, but why lose an hour reciting dribble? Can we get real, impart some timeless wisdom, and still have a laugh or three?
The world is awash in bubble finance, institutionalized incompetence, and cronyism. Supporting a family successfully demands hyperfocus.
Heck, the school system isn’t going to teach them about debt, finance, liberty, entrepreneurship, psychology, or even history. They’ll get fables, names and dates — the chopping of a cherry tree or landing of the Mayflower — but miss the real points, mangled to the point of propaganda.
It’s our job as parents to help them understand how the world really works. It’s your job to get them to think independently, questioning phony narratives.
Are you ready to blow the doors off story-time? You’re in the right place.
We’re releasing a full-color children’s book series to prepare them early for an unforgiving world, to educate, enlighten, and entertain the whole family. Without it, they’ll be groomed to trust a broken system, forced to learn the hard way. With the right stories, they’ll be masters of their own fate.
Due first is “Where does money come from?”. Other titles in the queue include “Good-Debt, Bad-Debt”, “The Madness of Crowds”, “Right-Law, Wrong-Law” and “Fear and Greed”.
We’re putting the crayons back to work for your family, injecting a bigger purpose into story-time.
For a limited time (until the publication date or the free quota is met), one in every four parents to join our list receives a free copy of the title of your choosing. No obligation, and we’ll even cover shipping.
Plus, you’ll get our best content, right to your InBox, just once per month.
No ads, no spam, and no bull.
Don’t let your kids fall victim to a predatory system that would rather see them saddled with debt, devoid of all independent thinking, and lining up at the trough behind some political hack peddling empty, foolhardy promises.
Set the course for a brighter future, and always, question authority.
Then share your thoughts and see what keeps other parents up at night with our latest poll, biggest worry for you as a parent in America today.

Don’t leave without joining our email list to receive better ideas on being a parent and an effective provider in America today.
Our focus shifts, but generally we deal with the absurd, in the light of trying to raise and provide financial, emotional, and intellectual support for a family.
On any given month, that might include both baby and financial advice, kids sports, managing your wife’s emotions (the answer is always no, you don’t look fat in this) or taking care of your husband after loss of his job, plus we can’t help to revisit the root of all of the world’s problems: bureaucracy.
Yes, that includes both political parties, and no, we don’t hate America.
We love what America stood for not that long ago. We want that dream back for our kids, their kids, and your kids.
We welcome your feedback and want to hear what you are struggling with as a family. Maybe we can help. Submit a question, and we’ll do our best to respond. Thanks for all you do in your thankless jobs as parents in America today.
