Hello Everybody, Frank here.
Every now and then, like most people, I run across an article or a post that just kind of stays with me. Last night while reading SurvivalBlog I read one of those type articles. It’s written by a man with his perspective about raising his boys to become men.
I was in public education for almost 30 years. I saw lots of changes in the way schools respond to boys. Now, I may take a little heat for what I’m about to say, but it seems that there’s an agenda in our society now days, to restrict the development of boys into men. It’s a quiet movement, very subtle, but it’s there. And then you throw in television. For years TV has been degrading fathers and men in general. There is probably a much larger reason for this passive kind of movement.
But, back to this man’s article. It’s relatively short in length, but it hits on some points about his technique of raising his boys. If you would, take the time to read it, and then look around at what you see in our society, at the things that we are doing to turn little boys into anything but men. We need more kids out on the playground with stick swords slaying dragons, and not a bunch of little boys discussing how they feel about what Billy Bob said about them.
Things have changed a lot in the last 30 years. If certain groups had their way, they’d make all little boys sit down to urinate. Hope you enjoy this article, I certainly did.
Your comments would be appreciated.
We’ll talk more later, Frank
