A lot of fathers/husbands need to grow a pair. Part of that is setting things straight with emotionally impaired wives that have zero understanding how these things work with boys/young men.
Women nurture by instinct. They have their place after a fight occurs. But when it comes to raising a boy to become a man, a father is needed. A mother can help raise a gentleman, as well as fathers. But women lack the natural ability to teach a boy to be a man.
I fear our nation lacks good men to be fathers. There are too many limp-wristed, weak, liberal males that are chronologically men. These are the type of people that are willing to wait for the police to show up when their family's life and property need defending. What happens when our nation needs to be defended?
I will give an example from my own childhood.
When my brother was about 6, and 8 year old neighbor boy cornered him and held his little thumb to a cigarette lighter badly blistering it. My older brother who was then about 18 found this thuggish 8 year old and seriously threatened him. After that neither my brother or I ever had any problem with bullying in the neighborhood or in school.
Another time, my older brother, who was then about 13, was selling flowers at the entrance to the elevated train station. He was approached by two homosexuals and teased by them. My uncle ( who owned the greenhouse that supplied the flowers) and another uncle waited for these homosexuals. Again, there was a **serious** but polite talk. These homosexuals were never seen in the neighborhood again.
One final example:
My older brother,( as an adult, father, and husband, )had drug dealers move into his neighborhood. One evening my brother and other men in the neighborhood had a very polite and business-like talk with the dealers. They pointed out the roofs where snipers could easily take aim at the drug dealers. They also mentioned that police won't be very eager to vigorously investigate any “incidents”. The next day, the dealers were permanently gone from the neighborhood.
