Manly Men

Is your dad telling you to stop crying and toughen up? How do you get him to listen?

Take it from me because I was in this same position when I was younger. Dads arent hard on you because they are jerks they are trying to toughen you up. When you become a man one day and have a boy of your own you will understand why your father had to do the things he did. It was for your own good and he knew that was more important then being your buddy all the time. There will come a time when your father tells you that he is so proud of you and everything you have become. That is the day you will learn he was just being a dad.

Parents need to realize, your child is an individual. You have to expect them to love their own life, do what makes them happy. Manly fathers who feel their child is only worthy if they are exactly what they were in high school, is only living the life they want through their child. Your son may not want to be a jock. He may want to paint, or dance. Doesn't make him any less of a person, and should not affect the relationship between father and son.

Thats true but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't be encouraged to to do more masculine things like football wrestling etc. If they can't or don't want to thats fine too, but having a strong body helps not only for health reasons but also in so many other aspects of childhood and adults lives.

Some young boys cant identify with sports so they need to be understood before you just shove them into sports and hoping for the best

I'm sure you can relay your message with out having your son feel he's being bullied by his father.
