“The three most destructive words that every man receives as a boy is when he is told to BE A MAN.”
“The Mask You Live In” by The Representation Project is a film exploring masculinity in our society. As father’s this is very important and something we must be cognizant of as we raise young men or even look out for our daughters. I sometimes worry about my son around other boys. He has been told some discouraging things because he is not in tune with all the music on the radio or video games. His young manhood has been tested already and he has only 8 years old! As a dad, I get down because he is not as rough as I would like or as rough as I was at his age. But upon some soul-searching and prayer, I realized that is the wrong attitude to have. There are so many other things to equip him with at this young age.
Watch this video trailer. Very enlightening. Why so many boys seem to be going crazy and some of the ways we help their descent. https://twitter.com/maskyoulivein
