What are doing wrong raising boys?

I know from my experience with my own husband, and what I learned from my involvement with Let Me Run, that we need to do better for our boys. This is a very interesting read.

“While following the conventional script may still bring social and professional rewards to boys and men, research shows that those who rigidly adhere to certain masculine norms are not only more likely to harass and bully others but to themselves be victims of verbal or physical violence. They’re more prone to binge-drinking, risky sexual behavior, and getting in car accidents. They are also less happy than other guys, with higher depression rates and fewer friends in whom they can confide.”

    Touche. I was listening to a radio talk show recently where the topic was “should you buy your son a doll?” This was not a wrestling doll or a superhero doll, but a baby doll, boy or girl gender,and people were calling in and voicing their opinions and experiences. It was surprising to me how many women called in to say that their husbands had strong arguments against it or forbid it. Sometimes I feel so much has changed that nothing has changed at all. Thanks for sharing.

      My late husband had an issue with getting the dog neutered, so I’m just grateful we never had a son. lol Thanks for reading.
