There Are No Such Things As “Children’s Stories”
Play • 3 min

“Aesop’s Fables are silly stories about dogs and mice and foxes and lions. Children love them. But are they ‘for kids?’ No, they are for human beings. They are designed to teach lessons. Bad stories pander. Good stories entertain. Great ones teach while they do it. The question is, what kind of stories are you filling your kid imagination with? What kind of stories are you filling your own life with?”

Ryan explains why the stories that you expose your children to should be teaching them timeless lessons, and launches his newest book The Boy Who Will Be King, on today’s Daily Dad podcast.

Pre-order The Boy Who Would Be King, our newest release at Daily Stoic, written by Ryan Holiday in the depths of the pandemic (not unlike the one Marcus ruled through), this new beautifully crafted book is available for preorder now. As a special bonus, if you order this book before March 9th, 2021, you’ll get a FREE audiobook version as well. Go to to pre-order now and you’ll automatically get the free book.
