They should get into it in more depth. This video was so surface level it was hard to take seriously.

Why is there not a man up there sharing his views and perception of how men express emotions? What does a woman know about how a man feels? I'm sorry, there is no expert in parenting.. in my opinion

I'ma a 15(Guy) 1) being masculine and keeping emotions in check is pretty easy, and knowing that people think of me being strong just gives me confidence tbh, drugs and alcohol at first I'm polite and say nah I'm fine if they keep insisting i hit them with FACTS i say a curse word to get the message through Ex: B**** I said NO you F***i** know the effects blah blah blah if you out here tryna get in trouble do it IDC

Boys & men express emotion differently than women. Yes, there are societal influences that also come into play. Boys & men are not girls & women. Don't push men to be more like women.

"If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated, don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise If you can dream - and not make dreams your master; If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the will which says to them: 'Hold on!' If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!" ― Rudyard Kipling, If: A Father's Advice to His Son

This is bullshit. A mans job is to provide for and protect his family. So boys/men have to be Strong, Logical, Confident, and Sane. Keep going the direction you are going in, and Muslims really will take over this country.

I'm glad they feel comfortable being this candid. I hope that these discussions lead to some self discoveries and revelations that help them to navigate away from harmful behaviors

Girls play with dolls when they are young, which gives them a 'motherly' skill where boys are given things like trucks and Legos. This means when men become parents they don't have the same skill as the mother does. I think the problem is the separation of things for boys and girls. These issues start at a young age. Also fatherless homes can create even more issues for boys as well.

john c I was hoping someone responded to that, no need to tire my thumbs any further. Encouraging boys to communicate their emotions, fine. Trying to subtly redefine masculinity in a way that will accommodate homosexuality, not being tolerated. Nice try snowflakes. Boys aren't supposed to learn to be motherly, they will be fathers. And communicating emotions as a man is something they learn from observing the fathers at home. And playing with a bunch of dolls doesn't make an excellent mother, it makes a controlling materialistic hag.

Emmett so the first thing that pops into your head as a problem for boys is that they don't play with dolls enough, but then fatherless boys comes second. It is the absence of fathers and their leadership which is the most serious problem. That is fine if a boy wants to play with dolls, just don't start parroting people who think it is a problem if boys don't play with dolls.

Its no wonder boys feel confused in today's society... Quit turning them into girls!!!! They need their fathers to teach them how to be men.

Insatiable is my name. Not to attack your beliefs, or anything, but you wanna know what's weird about God, well not necessary God more like things related to God. Take the great flood for example, if I remember correctly, God told Noah about the flood so Noah could take two of every animal, and with his family and TWO of EVERY ANIMAl out live the flood in a boat. So, how did Noah manege to tend and care for ALL those animals? What/how did Noah feed them? How did Noah manege to feed the likes of Tiger's, of Panther's all the dangerous animals that surely would've killed him on site. Cause, those animals live in a kill or be killed world they didn't know Noah, they didn't trust him, so how did he stop those animals from killing him? Better yet, how did he stop those animals from killing each other? Better yet, how did the Ark hold the combined weight all those animals, while facing rough waves that surely would be hitting that boat furiously. I know it's an Ark, but it's not that damn strong, and again correct me if I'm wrong, in the time of the great flood boats were made out of wood. So, simple wood maneged to hold the combined weight of two of every animal on the planet? There just seems to be a huge misstep in logic, you can't just ignore that. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but God spoke to Noah a HUMAN, so why doesn't he talk to us? He created us, the least he can do is tell us why. Again correct me if I'm wrong, one of the tenth commandments is thy shall not warships another God, or however the wording is anyways point is, he seems to want people to warship him. To warship someone or something, you have to believe in that someone or something, yet he doesn't do anything to prove he's real, proving he's the only God, therefore making anyone who didn't believe in him believe in him, and warship him. For a God he sure does seem fake as fuck.
