Do you have rules for who your kids can and can not date?
Marcus Luttrell, the retired Navy SEAL whose memoir Lone Survivor was made into an Oscar-nominated movie starring Mark Wahlberg, does.
If you have a daughter, raise her with a strong sense of confidence and self-esteem, so that she knows who she is, and treats herself well.
Then she’ll be able to make smart, and hopefully safe, decisions regarding whom she has romantic relationships with, whether she decides to see men or women.
Even if Luttrell is half-joking, this isn’t funny, and the fact that it’s been passed around so many times proves his sentiments resonate with many parents. We all want the best for our children, and letting them go off into the world and make decisions on their own — decisions which might hurt them, or cause us discomfort— can be a frightening prospect. We’ll keep you safe.” The thing is, we don’t always know what’s right, and we can’t always keep them safe.
It’s easier to slam down the gates and stamp our feet, to revert back into our own childhood state where we say, “No. We all must make mistakes and sometimes suffer, that’s part of life.
Luttrell goes on to say that if the boy makes the cut, then he can talk to his daughter over the phone, provided Luttrell holds the phone. Finally, he says he wants to get a chastity belt made “w/ a SEAL trident engraved on it [that] reads ‘Ask father for key.’ He’s the 6’5 250lbs tattooed maniac that’s chained to the wall.
