Raising Boys to be Good Men: A Parent’s Guide to Bringing up Happy Sons in a World Filled with Toxic Masculinity
After the recent #MeToo movement across the globe and current events, parents need to understand the importance of Raising Boys to Be Good Men: A Parent’s Guide to Bringing up Happy Sons in a World Filled with Toxic Masculinity. Aaron Gouveia, a father to three young boys, offers parenting advice with the intent of it applied to our modern society. Phrases such as “man up” and “real boys don’t cry” are shown the error of their logic. Through soul searching and revealing life stories, Gouveia discloses how he used to participate in toxic masculinity, but has since seen how this way of living does no good, only much harm.
Gouveia touches on many topics related to raising boys in today’s society: the gender wage gap, LGBTQ+, politics, religion, and much more. He starts from the preconceived gender stereotypes people possess of children even before conception and how that can affect the child after birth and works his way up to the child dating and issues related to that (porn, mutual consent, etc.). Reminder: this is one person’s point of view, and it is liberal and atheistic.
