Creating a "Flight Plan" for your boys

I recently did an interview on my radio show with Braxton Brady author of the book Flight Plan. This book is designed to help dads become strategic in the way they raise their boys. In my interview Braxton referenced "The Laundry List" of things every dad need to pass on to his son(s) and a list of "Life Ready skills" to help you kids prepare for the demands of life. These lists are below to help you become more strategic than ever training your boys!
