Mark Sanderson replied to Joseph Robert's discussion Awkward circumstance with my son
"Actually sounds like a great father/son bonding moment. I would have been extremely awkward with my dad in that situation, especially at 13. I got the "talk" from my dad the summer before middle school. While he didn't go into much…"

"Thanks John Boy for sharing. I'm struggling as a grandfather and only man in my grandson's life to talk about such matters. Everything I bring up he says he learned in the 4th, 5th, & 6th grade sex class. He is intact whereas I am…"

"JB, it pained me to read your story. I am so glad you shared it, though. Pained in that I could easily imagine myself in your shoes when everything happened. I am circumcised, but I know enough now abt the intact penis to be able to imagine your…"

"I think many of us had similar experiences growing up, which is why this story resonates with some of us, including myself.  I also grew up in a religious household, and while I appreciate that, one of the few negative things it brought about…"

Joseph Robert replied to Brandon's discussion Why are people satisfied with mediocrity? What happened to aspirations of greatness?
"I think many are lazy. We live in a world which does not encourage hard work. There are no winners or losers anymore. Tax codes discourage upward advancement. Government handouts to enable slothful living don't help. Most guys want to be great…"

Boyhood Restored

I believe that boys should use their time primarily to prepare for manhood. This group is for young men, dads, and other men who have opinions they'd like to share on how boys should grow up or be raised.
