Herman Definitely a Good Father. He wants his children to do Something with their lives. Be able to take care of Themselves and not depend on their Father to do it. To be a responsible, independent Adult is a skill that’s disturbingly lacking in this generation. Entitlement, cruelty, arrogance, anger,lack of empathy, respect,laziness,morals,values,and alarming poor work ethic is becoming the norm. To be totally honest, it’s not the children’s fault. It’s totally on the Parents. If they haven’t been taught these life saving and enrichment skills; how will they Ever Learn?

Kristi Williams Girls should have to work at the same level as your boys! They can be educated too and choose careers or professions that will make them independent too!
