Senator Ben Sasse

Have you heard the phrase “adulting?” People talk about regarding doing things people in the past never really thought about much. They just did it. Paying bills, filling the car up with gas, voting, etc.

Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska discusses that in his book, ‘The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis And How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance.’ The book does not serve as a blueprint for taking your kids from adolescence into adulthood but instead, Sasse tells the story of how and his wife are doing it raising their kids. He also talks about the value of hard work, the ways in which he thinks education should change and what it means to be “literate” beyond functional literacy.
