Since we don't have sons, I have no experience raising boys. However I was raised with three brothers (no sisters) so I find boys to be fascinating creatures.
And someday my girls will grow up and marry someone else's sons, so I have a great interest in how other people raise their boys. I'm distressed by the modern trend to feminize men. I want my daughters to marry good men, not good boys.
So I read with great interest an essay a reader sent called Civilized, Not Feminized on the Raising Homemakers website, written by a woman who is well-experienced in boys. Well worth reading -- and heeding.
This is a website I'm going to have to investigate at greater length...
