Parenting Boys!

Share This

It’s not easy to raise boys. They drive us crazy sometimes. However, I have found some solace in reminding myself that it took me 49 years to learn the things that I know today. My son is only 14- years old with much still to learn. Thankfully, I have much still to teach, especially when it comes to emotional intelligence (EQ).

It seems that a lot of boys are doers. They just ‘do’ and then deal with the consequence, later. I too have done that ‘do’ thing, instead of the stop and think about it for a while thing, a lot in my life. Heck, I even pride myself on being a man of action. Some of the spontaneous action has turned out good, and some hasn’t turned out so well. However, in the long run, I have been lucky enough to have time on my side to build wisdom in regards to this doing thing versus the stop and think about it thing. My son hasn’t had this luxury of time yet as I have in all those years I have over him.

Wisdom brought about from age and experience has helped me create a higher emotional intelligence or higher EQ. Now all you fathers out there, don’t forget that we were just like our boys at some past point in our past lives. So I think I can say with confidence that our young boys will get to the promised land of a higher EQ when given enough time and guidance. As parents though, it’s our job to try to speed up their journey of maturation, so they don’t trip up and fall as often as we did on our previous winding EQ building journeys into adulthood.

Now, as my Granddaddy always said, “Go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us.” Your parenting of your boys can turn your good boys into good young men with a little extra effort, love, and patience. And once again parents, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do…
