I am the proud mother of a 14 month old bouncing baby boy. My biggest concern is how to raise him to be a proud, productive and positive member of society. I do clearly understand that I have to make sure that he has positive male influences.. but just want to talk about what we can do as mothers... to ensure that our sons are the BEST MEN THEY CAN BE. What are the top 3 values that you are planning to instill in your son? Mine are:
1. I started a college fund and I am going to instill in him the value of higher education from the time he starts talking, read and understand.
2. Be a MAN OF YOUR WORD & INTEGRETY - Your word is all you have. Do what you say you are going to do - Be where you say you are going to be - and if you can't do what you said you would... communicate early so that people know they can trust you.
3. Respect - Your parents, elders, authority figures & women. Give respect in order to get it!
