Manly Men

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

I have a son, and his dad didn't have to bully him or be super tough on him to make our son tough. He doesn't play sports. He is a computer wiz who wants to be a video game programmer. Dads can make a man, or make a over bearing bully if a man. You can be tough, but dang. Don't make a boy feels he less than a man because he isn't the best at sports, or he cries, or loves his mom, or has a weakness.

The best dad is the one who just says son I love you no matter what.

I agree. Dads are to support you. Not bully you into being all manly! I agree with what the above poster said. A great dad is a dad who loves you no matter what.

I couldn't imagine not telling a child how much you love them or how proud you are of them! Parents should be supportive, loving, and accepting of anything they want to do without fear of disappointment. I dislike parents who feel their kid needs to fit in the mold of the best athlete, or the smartest princess. I dislike when parents try to live THEIR dreams through there children and push them to extreme to accomplish greatness! Yes, a little nudging is fine, so your child can find there limits, but outright bullying to get your kids to be the best football player when he hate football, or the best cheerleader when all she wants to do is draw, is wrong!!

A certain amount of toughness has to be instilled into a boy, but fathers need to know how and when to apply the breaks.
