i am a father of 2...i ran my kids hard and told them life and society wasn't going to be easy on them (and it wasn't). i tried to teach, prepare, and give them all the skills and tools to be successful in a bad world. i am known to my sons' friends, teammates and coaches as a major a-h. i really didn't care. my kids at first didn't like my behavior and attitude but they soon saw what i had been showing and telling them was mostly the hard truth about life and all of the bad types people they would come into contact with. my oldest son told me recently that he never forgot many of the things i told him and that he recalled much of it when bad situations happened and it helped him get through those tough situations. So, I feel good that a kid like Zo knows where his dad is coming from. There are a lot of haters out there. And the duty of the father and mother is to protect their kids and prepare them for life. All the haters can go F themselves really.
