He has the rest of his life to be a man. Let him be a child. Love him let him play pretend and have fun. A loved son grows into a loving man. We need more love in the world. I have 4 sons. They grow up way too quick. Enjoy your son being a wonderful child while you can.

Good for you! I had 3 sons. I raised them to be sensitive to other peoples feelings, be honest, and respectful. Men need to learn empathy when they are young

So true. A lot of boomers were raised without hugs, lack of affection. I didn't know how much a simple hug meant until i was much much older. And yes a lot of us are in need of therapy.
