Raising Up Men
"It's likewise important for women to remember that they are raising boys, not little copies of themselves. This can be taken too far, when we accept a lack of control as boyishness. But we don't want to raise a nation of sissies either. We don't justify disobedience, a lack of patience, a lack of discipline of the grounds that the child is a boy. But neither do we put the poor child in a skirt. We want boys to grow into an outward-looking, jungle-taming approach to life."
