Parenting Topics for Boys

I have seen so many different posts about how boys should be raised and how they shouldn’t–and ever since the commercial that shows the Nick@Nite comedian saying…

I have 3 kids, that’s a lot for someone in their 20’s.

I have bitten my tongue because we had 4 kids together and I am still in my early 20’s.

Now, I won’t pretend to know everything! because by all means, I don’t. But, I am going to touch on different topics through out this next week or so–and I would love everyone’s opinions on them, when they come up.

I enjoy different views–and often end up talking them through with one of my older sisters and finding a new view. But, would love to see what others think.

Not saying that you will change my opinion or that I want to change yours but, sometimes, seeing another side helps explain boys–cause goodness, we all know that they are just as complicated as us girls are to boys.

So–here’s the list (and in no particular order), please feel free to throw out other ideas.

  • Chores/Responsibility
  • Emotions/Sensitivity
  • Physical Affection/Cuddles, Hugs, & Kisses
  • Revving Engine/Energizer Bunny
  • Too much or too little Masculinity
  • Extra Curricular Activities
  • Praising Behavior
  • Toy Weapons/Violent Video Games/Swords, Guns, Sticks
  • Disciplining
  • Noise Levels/What’s appropriate
  • Breastfeeding/Formula
  • Not Listening–Disobedient? Or just built that way?
  • ER Visits
  • Dressing Boys
  • Playing Dress-Up
  • Boys Teach You Too

I am sure there will be more topics in there every so often but, as my computer is about to die and a little boy is waiting for me to fill up his bottle with milk–time for dinner.
