What sons need to grow into real men

I had a man commenting on this article I wrote a year ago. According to him, boys need real men that show their masculinity in order for the boys to grow into “real men” while girls grow to be women naturally.

I was stunned. First of all, what is a “real” man or woman? What is the definition and who decides that?


I thought this mindset was long gone but obviously, I was wrong. So for all of you who want to know what psychological science has concluded for all of you that aren’t the typical parents; single mamas, single dads, homosexual couples and everyone else that doesn’t fit into the description of a “normal family”.

Here is a summary of what I learned from psychological research:

The parent’s gender, sexual preference, amount of parents DOES NOT MATTER FOR YOUR CHILD’S UPBRINGING AND WELLBEING.

Did I make myself clear enough?

Do you want to know what does matter?
How we behave. That’s it.

Isn’t it fantastic that we need science to tell us this?

Now all of you out there not being “real parents and families” go on and rock it, you’re doing a great job!
