Thank you. I raised my son alone, and men I dated wanted to “ toughen him up.” I resisted, and stayed single. My son has had a difficult time as a relational being in the culture you describe. It is good to know there are older men who can help lead him out of the Man Box that he still inhabits at times because of our culture.
