Hello AoM brethren, In regards to the title of this post, I'm referring to those children who are without a father figure...a result of a lapse of judgment rather than of divorce.  I'm 35 and have a…Continue

"Thanks for the comments guys.  I guess I was preparing for when my daughter got to this age and overlooked that my son would be just as much of a handful. "

"Boys change. The get moody, sullen, sometimes even weepy. Next thing you know, they get over it. In the end, however, the hardest thing isn't their changes it is our, as parents, reluctance to accept their changing (Mind you, a lot of their…"

My boy is growing up

Good Afternoon fellow Art of Manliness brethren,Me and my boy have been exceptionally close since his birth.  My wife works in the medical field and with those 12 hour shifts I've created a bond with both my kids that I may not have had she been a stay at home mom or had a similar 9 to 5 gig.  My son has recently turned 11 years of age.  It may as well have been 16.  He has totally and completely changed in such a short amount of time, both physically and emotionally.  I obviously knew these…See More

Native Son replied to JD's discussion Fatherless Children

Quote
"The things you own end up owning you."

"It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything."

"You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.


Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
