What Are We Teaching Our Boys?


It is important that we are focusing on raising loving and compassionate children.

If you have a 2 year old boy, ask yourself, what kind of 8 year old am I raising right now, how will this boy behave in the school yard?

If you have an 8 year old, ask yourself, what kids of 15 year old am I raising right now, how will this boy treat his girlfriend?

If you have a 15 year old, ask yourself, what kind of man, husband, father am I raising right now, how will he treat his partner and children?

We get so focused on managing the day to day that we forget the big picture.  Often, we think of big picture only in terms of their education and potential career or earning potential.

If we raise our children with the intention of helping to create compassionate and loving adults, we need to be teaching, modeling, and helping them experience love and compassionate right now.

    A buutaifel aritcle. I just watched The Business of Being Born, which should be required watching for every mother-to-be. Yes, natural birth may hurt but I’m not convinced that the conventional medicated hospital birth is any less painful. Additionally, the baby gets its first nourishment as it comes through the birth canal, correct? Gut flora and such? Doesn’t the cord blood nourish the baby further, and cutting the cord early stop that process? I’m not a mother, but I’m truly fascinated by the process of birth and how it’s been usurped by medicine.

    I couldn’t agree more with you. If parents taught their boys (and girls) to respect all people as well as themselves, our world would be a much better and happier place.
