Teaching Our Sons Responsibility

It seems to me that as time progresses we see more and more lack in responsibility from our men. Husbands are leaving their wives for other women, fathers are not providing for their own children, some men feel it is their wives"duty" to care for the children and home without their help. This is not what God has intended. He created men to be leaders of their households. They are meant to be the spiritual covering over the family, the provider, the teacher, the example.

If more men would be strong influences in their children's lives we would see less teen pregnancies, less men abandoning their responsiblities, less violence. The world would function completely differently then it does today.

What does this have to do with boys?

Our sons are going to one day grow and be men. They will have a family of their own. It is our job as parents to teach them now what they need to know, for the sake of their futures. We need to be teaching our sons how to help around the house, how to care for babies, how to be a hard worker, etc. We all desire to see our sons grow into respectful men. Every parent desires this no matter what religion or race you are.

Thanks for posting about these books and I whole heartedly agree with what you said. Its sad, but we are seeing the affects of a society of men that act just like Peter Pan.
