This guy totally gets it. This is probably the best example of Theology-of-the-Body based parenting I have ever read and his son is a lucky boy. I want all you parents out there–and especially you dads out there–to read this, memorize it, and repeat it to your kids. THIS is the way to talk to your boys about girls.
Someday I am going to have to have the conversation with my son. No, not the conversation all parents dread giving and all kids are mortified having. I enjoy making people uncomfortable so that conversation should be fun.
No, I’m talking about another conversation. The one that happens after I catch his eye doing what male eyes do well – following an object of lust. We will probably be out at the mall, because that’s what dads do with their sons, and I’ll catch the look. Maybe we’ll go to the beach and see it. Doesn’t matter where it is, there will come a time when I will see it. And then it will be time for this conversation. MORE
