"What a Man loves a Man honors. The issue is usually boy minds in man bodies. [...] The metamorphosis from boy to man has to be one of the most beautiful yet delicate changes that ever occur..ever. Unfortunately (& I don't know why- lack of Men fathers or emotional stability) many of our boys don't get there. We stress the importance of the role of the Man father in girls' lives. but I'd like to submit that it's even more important for boys. We talk a lot about there being a lot of hurt women out there, but there are a lot of hurt men out there as well."
In the cases where there isn't a positive father-son relationship formed, these adult sons absolutely have to make the effort to be better fathers for their children. Even if they didn't have examples to learn from, it is 2014 and the internet is a great starting place to find answers. It may seem a little silly, googling search terms that will aid you in being a better parent (and man), but let's be real there aren't tons of books being written about the subject matter for nothing. Also, the fact that there is a market for parenting/relationship books should make you realize that you are not the only one who needs a bit of assistance.
When we bring another being into this world, it has to be remembered that it is not about us anymore. It has to be remembered that the things we do are for the betterment of our children. There is no more moments of "Damn I don't want to do this" and actually not doing so. As a parent I won't dare say we can't whine and complain cause parenthood is not a walk in the park. I will say that once we get that little bit of complaining out, it's time to shake it off and handle the tasks at hand, no matter what they are. Being better parents to our young ones means that we are aiding in the cycle of metamorphosis from child to adult, 100%.
