How to Teach Your Son to Be a Real Man
Are you letting your son be a man? Last week, our cat left a gift at our back door… a small, dead rat. I wouldn’t go near it. When I told my husband about it on the phone, he said to let our son take care of it. “What?!” I thought. “But he’s only 9 years old!”
But my husband was right. Our son could’ve done it and probably would’ve wanted to, but by the time I told him what his father had suggested, the gift was gone.
The bottom line is that if we want our boys to grow into men, and not Mama’s boys, we have to let them flex their growing-man muscles. Sure, we want to nurture their sensitive side too, but mamas need to let their boys go, so they can grow into the men they were meant to be.
