I'm so proud of my 14-year-old Andrew. His latest English assignment was to write about masculinity.
He summed up his argument: "I think the man must be kind, fair and act as a good role model and be balanced between strictness and over kindness. He should be willing to help others when they are in need and should act politely. He shouldn't be proud or vain and should support his family."
What do you think? It made me all warm and fuzzy that he's picked up these rules to live by and that masculinity for him is not about just being strong.
