My sister gave birth to a baby boy last night. The first boy born to our family in 26 years. Only the third boy since my uncle, and he's, like in his 50s (I think).
I imagine the goal in raising a boy is the same as in raising a girl. I think you just want to raise a a decent, kind, caring, responsible human being. I know that's what my family does with the girls. I can't imagine the "boy goals" are different.
But, if I could, I'd like to make a suggestion, offer a blueprint, to guide this young soul though the craziness that is life on this planet.
I truly believe that if all the boys had a manditory viewing of Say Anything (or several viewings) and were told "that's the goal, right there," this world would be a much better place.
If all the fellas were that kind, caring, compassionate, thoughtful, humble, gentlemanly...well, I think we'd all be fine.
And I am so not kidding.
