HCR046: It Takes a Man to Raise One

In this episode, I talk about two more strategies parents can use to train a boy to be a man. Here are some of the points I discuss:
  • I recap the first point, “It takes a man to raise one.”
  • I share the second point, “Hard work is a young man’s best friend.”
  • I talk about the power of working at difficult tasks alongside your son.
  • I share the third point, “Sons are raised to manhood one son at a time, one day at a time.” The bridge of relationship has to be strong enough for the truth you wish to carry across.
  • I share the Story of the Week, “The Nativity.”
  • If you would like a CD of the full one-hour presentation I have done with my sons on this topic, send $8 to: P.O. Box 40 Elon, NC 27244 Make checks payable to Mark Fox.
