I have three sons so The Good Men Project was bound to catch my eye sooner or later. It’s a website for men and about men. The point of the conversation over there is this,
“The Good Men Project is a glimpse of what enlightened masculinity might look like in the 21st century,”
So you can see why the website got me sitting up and taking notice. I’m raising three men of the future. And how they raise their sons in turn, should they have any, will depend on how my husband and I raise them.
And with that in mind I wrote an article for The Good Men Project about my highly sensitive sons and their emotions. I wrote from the heart about how I want my sons to model their own version of masculinity and not adhere to the expectations that society has of males when it comes to displaying emotions. I want my sons to be the fathers of the future who are not uncomfortable with their own sons crying.
To read the full article go to Changing the Notion that Big Boys Don’t Cry, One Little Boy at a Time over on The Good Men Project. I would love to read your comments over there if you have any thoughts!
