Rules every man should teach his sons

Our boys are the next generation & before we know it they'll be partners, protectors, providers & all the other things you need to be a well-rounded bloke to do well.

1. Never shake a man’s hand sitting down.

2. Don’t enter a pool by the stairs.

3. The man at the BBQ Grill is the closest thing to a king.

4. In a negotiation, never make the first offer.

5. Request the late check-out.

7. Hold your heroes to a higher standard.

8. Return a borrowed car with a full tank of gas.

11. Don’t let a wishbone grow where a backbone should be.

12. If you need music on the beach, you’re missing the point.
