I'm blogging my way through Raising Real Men with The MOB Society. If you missed a post in the series, head to the Raising Real Men Introduction to catch up. Today, I'm in chapter 13 and 14 to finish out the book.
This whole chapter is fabulous. Moms of boys, you need to read this chapter on love, dating, and marriage. Josh and I recently heard Hal and Melanie talk about this subject at Teach Them Diligently. They have recordings of this talk called Shining Armor: Your Son's Battle for Purity that I would highly recommend that you purchase as well. It's only $4 for the mp3 download.
- A prime goal for each of our sons is to be able to support himself and a family as well. pg. 222
Learning consequences of actions. Preparing for the future. Choosing a career and/or college. These things seem so far off to me right now in relationship to my boys, but I know that our day is coming. Hal and Melanie give some great tips in this chapter about various options and how to prepare our young men for their futures.
Let's talk! We've reached the end of this series on Raising Real Men. Did you enjoy the book? What insights did you gain? Best tips for raising boys? Share your thoughts in the comments.
