Part of raising healthy, well-adjusted kids is making sure they’re well-informed. And, while the subject of history might not be your family’s “thing,” like other subjects traditionally taught in school, knowing our history is still a pertinent part of being well-informed.
Is it possible that being ill-informed with a warped, or gross lack of historical knowledge could actually be affecting our kids’ perspectives, attitudes; and somehow, even their behaviors, today? If so, could this same lack or slanted view of history also be driving a wedge of distrust and disrespect, not only between parents and their children but between their children and their God? That’s today’s discussion with Brian Kilmeade on License to Parent.
Not many broadcasters can say they are on the air for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, but that is exactly what Brian Kilmeade has been doing since 2006. After joining Fox News in 1997, he was soon named co-host of Fox & Friends, where he still thrives today. During his tenure at Fox News, he has developed the ability to interview and provide insight into newsmakers, politicians, celebrities, and athletes.
Brian has written 5 books, 4 New York Times bestsellers including “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans” co-written with Don Yaeger. Number 6 is in the works and will be announced this fall and released in 2019. He currently resides with his wife and 3 kids where he grew up in Massapequa, NY. When he is not working you can often catch him on the soccer field watching or coaching.
