I have no idea who came up with this list, but I like almost all of it.
52 Things every Father should teach his Son
1) How to Throw a Ball
It breaks my heart to see little boys who don’t know how to throw a ball. They stay inside all the time eating potato chips and playing the newest video game system. Put a baseball in their hands and they look like a Deer caught in headlights. No boy should ever be caught dead throwing like a girl. When I was a youngster we had a name for all the boys who threw like girls, and it wasn’t a nice name.
2) How to Throw a Punch
Our single mommy world is raising a bunch of little pussified boys who get bullied (because they are bulliable). You’ve heard the rallying cries of “STOP THE BULLYING! STOP THE BULLYING!“. I say stop raising twinks and the bullying will stop. Each Father must teach his son how to throw a solid punch. Bullies are cowards who pick on the weak, after a jab to the nose you can forget about bullies picking on you ever again.
3) How To Tie a Tie
If you don’t teach your Son how to tie a tie he is going to learn from the internet. Is the internet a better father than you?
4) The Power of Willpower
Your mind is your greatest asset and with it, and the right attitude, you can accomplish anything you set out to do. Make the decision, do not waiver in the face of adversity, and you will reap the rewards of your effort. Give in to adversity and quit and you can expect to be completely and totally AVERAGE.
5) Never Give Women Power Over You
When women have the upper hand they will use it to your peril. It is only when you hold your rightful power that women respect you. It is usually the case that men who give women power, who try and do everything to please women, who would never dream of arguing or abusing a women, that get the police called on them for “abuse”.
6) How to Build a Bookshelf
Not knowing how to use a hammer, nails, screwdriver would be highly embarrassing later in life when little Johnny has to have his nagging wife fix everything in the house.
7) Discrimination is Good
Disregard the media baloney about discrimination being bad. Discrimination is how you survive and prosper. You see a girl in a bar dressed like a slut, you can be sure she is a slut. You see a group of blacks with their pants around their mid-thighs you can be sure you don’t want anything to do with them. You see a group of Mexicans gathered around the Home Depot you can be sure they are illegals.
8) It’s Not OK to Be a Sissy
Only single mommy’s and weak daddies raise sissies. A strong father will not raise a weak child, he will teach his child the importance of stoic strength. He will teach him the importance of a “Yes, I can!” attitude.
9) Trust is Earned, Not Given
Treat everyone with respect but never let your guard down. People in this world are out to eat the weak and if you show vulnerability the Hyenas will feast.
10) The Importance of Hard Work
The years of 15-21 will mark you for the rest of your life, it is imperative that you get in some hard work so you can develop the habit of not being a lazy slob. That can mean athletics, yard work, farm work, work in the family business, or school work.
11) The Importance of Physical Fitness
Keeping your body lean and mean shows pride in yourself and your abilities. Letting yourself go is a sign of weakness, depression, and high estrogen and low testosterone.
12) Don’t Believe Her When She Says She’s on the Pill
A.P.O.E. (Always pull out early).
13) How to Swim
I was at Maya Beach, a small island in Thailand (famous for the movie The Beach) and I saw the most embarrassing sight of my life. There are two ways to get to Maya beach: The front way and the back way. If you go the front way you have to pay, so we had our banana boat driver take us the back way so we could get in for free. At the back door of Maya beach you have to park the boat in the water, jump in the ocean, and swim to the edge of the island where you climb up a rope and then up some stairs.
As we were leaving we saw some truly horrific sights. One guy COULD NOT SWIM EVEN WHILE WEARING A LIFE JACKET. He was being pulled through the ocean by a tiny little Thai man who was not wearing a life jacket. The guy in the life jacket was being dragged like a little baby by a guy half his size who was not wearing a life jacket. That man’s father failed big time. The guy looked at me, we made eye-contact and he just shrugged like “what can you do?“.
The embarrassment does not end there. The guy had a buddy WHO ALSO COULD NOT SWIM EVEN WHILE WEARING A LIFE JACKET and was being pulled by another little Thai man.
14) Competition is Great
If you play, you play to win. 2nd place is the first loser.
15) Opportunity is Everywhere
You must learn to keep your eyes and ears open and ready to take advantage of opportunity. As a man you do not wait for opportunity to present itself to you, you seek it out.
16) Know Who You Are
You will live amongst other races who covet the things you have, never forget that and never let your guard down.
17) Always Give 110%
If you are going to do something your must do it right. Never give less than your best. Your aim for perfection is what separates you from the animals of society.
18) Your Word is Special
If you say you will do something it is a must that you follow through. Never, ever be known as a liar or as a flake. Your reputation is special and must be kept in-tact.
19) How to Make Money on Your Own
Working for others to make them rich and you a pittance is what slaves do. Making money on your own is how you do for yourself.
20) Boys is Boys and Girls is Girls
and never the tween shall meet. Sex is not a social construct, it is biological. If you don’t listen to yourself and your body you are going to grow up to be very angry and confused. It is only when you know who you are and what you stand for that you can be comfortable with yourself.
21) Excuses are Useless
Excuses are for the useless and the weak who cannot do what they said they would do. Always do as you say you will do and never give excuses as to why you didn’t do something.
22) Excessive Apologies are for Pussies
Never, ever apologize unless you have done something terribly wrong. Never end phone calls with “sorry”, never pepper your conversation with “sorry” and never BE sorry unless you truly must be. If it wasn’t your fault do not say sorry. If it wasn’t a heinous crime, don’t say sorry.
Girls will respond to you being a boy. They will not respond to you trying to bond with them and have things in common with them. The further away from their femininity you are the more they will be attracted to you. Tease them, play with them, treat them like a little sister and you will not have girl problems.
24) The Importance of Athletics
Sports will teach you discipline and competition and they will give you pride of accomplishment. Sports will develop your body at the point in time it is most essential to develop your body – your teenage years.
25) Be Bold
Bold action is required to reap the rewards of life. Timidity is good for nothing. If you want something you go after it and you take it. You don’t ask permission to fulfill your goals, you don’t apologize for your goals, you don’t make excuses for your goals, and you don’t give a damn about being modest in the face of lessers.
26) Discipline is a Must
You must be disciplined enough to keep your hair trimmed and clean, you must bathe regularly, you must wear clean clothes daily, you must not dress like a slob, and you must keep yourself in top physical condition.
27) Hedonism is for the Weak
The world you are brought into is a degenerate, nihilistic, and hedonistic den of sin. Most of those you see did not have the same benefits you had (a father who taught you about life). Pity them, but do not join them in their quest for self-destruction.
28) Treat Animals With Firm Kindness
You will never have a better friend in your whole life than your puppy dog. Be good to your pets because they will be good to you. Remember, son, you have friends and family and the whole world, your dog only has you. A firm swat to your dogs behind is enough discipline, but you must never take your frustrations on a helpless animal.
29) Think BIG!
Small dreams are worthless. Think BIG and get BIG results. Aim high, go for the gold.
30) You Are a Born Leader
Always lead by example and strive for the best.
31) A Higher Power
There is more to life than we know or will ever know. Never think that you know everything about everything. There is something more at work and we won’t know what it is until we die. Atheism is a form of nihilism. If there’s no God then we can just do whatever we want and not worry about consequences. Son, that’s good enough for them but your life has a purpose.
32) Save Money
Spending your money on the latest gadgets and doo-dads and not saving anything for a rainy day is stupid. You will always need a backup fund for a rainy day or for an investment opportunity. The Richest Man in Babylon is good bed-time reading.
33) Don’t Talk So Much
No one needs to know your plans except for you. Keep a lid on the motor-mouthing.
