A Mother Comes Clean about Trying to Keep Her Daughter from Her Father

Excellent article where a women confesses she detonated her marriage because of her feelings, tried to exclude her daughter’s father from her life, and how, in the end, she was wrong and happy that her ex-husband fought her every step of the way.

Women for Men

Last night I cuddled up on the sofa with my five-year-old daughter Ruby as we enjoyed one of her favourite TV shows. It was the story of Tracy Beaker — who, I should explain to any non- parents, is a wonderful character created by the children’s author Jacqueline Wilson.

Tracy is a young girl growing up in a children’s home — she’s feisty and funny, but constantly fantastises about a better life. One with parents. Whenever she goes into one of her reveries, claiming to have ‘hay fever’ when she wants to shed a tear, Ruby gets sad. So last night, when hay fever struck Tracy, Ruby, too, became misty-eyed.

‘I’m so lucky to have a mummy and daddy,’ she said, hugging me. As I cuddled her back, I felt a terrible stab of guilt in my stomach.

For Ruby nearly didn’t have a daddy. For the first two-and-a-half years of her life, I…

A Concerned Mother’s Letter to Teenage Girls

A Concerned Mother’s Letter to Teenage Girls

A mother of 3 teenage boys comments on the inappropriate posts by girls on social media, and makes some insightful observations.

From the article:

I know your family would not be thrilled at the thought of my teenage boys seeing you only in your towel. Did you know that once a male sees you in a state of undress, he can’t quickly un-see it? You don’t want our boys to only think of you in this sexual way, do you?

Neither do we. We’re all more than that.

And so, in our house, there are no second chances with pics like that, ladies. We have a zero tolerance policy. I know, so lame. But, if you want to stay friendly with our sons online, you’ll have to keep your clothes on, and your posts decent. If you post a sexy selfie (we all know the kind), or an inappropriate YouTube video – even once – it’s curtains.

I know that sounds so old-school, but we are hoping to raise men with a strong moral compass, and men of integrity don’t linger over pictures of scantily clad high-school girls.

Every day I pray for the women my boys will love. I hope they will be drawn to real beauties, the kind of women who will leave them better people in the end. I also pray that my sons will be worthy of this kind of woman, that they will be patient – and act honorably – while they wait for her.

Girls, it’s not too late! If you think you’ve made an on-line mistake (we all do – don’t fret – I’ve made some doozies, even today!), RUN to your accounts and take down the closed-door bedroom selfies that makes it too easy for friends to see you in only one dimension.

Will you trust me? There are boys out there waiting and hoping for women of character. Some young men are fighting the daily uphill battle to keep their minds pure, and their thoughts praiseworthy – just like you.

You are growing into a real beauty, inside and out.

Act like her, speak like her, post like her.

Now, I have to wonder – where’s the Dad in all this and why are we only hearing from “Mom“?

Be that what it may, if more parents raised their sons to require better of their women, then maybe – just maybe – more girls will become the kind of woman who’d make a great wife, and who any parent would love to see matched with their son.

The Mission of Man

An excellent quote from Randy that was posted on Donal Graeme’s blog:

After discovering the manosphere this past summer I’ve decided that being unmarried for the rest of my life is a major possibility. A big part of me doesn’t like that at all. Yes, everything is stacked against us. The laws are unjust. But that’s our cross to bear. I have resolved to be content with my life, and yet still be open to the possibility of marriage in the future, while at the same time pursuing achievement in my own life — my mission, as it were. Part of that mission involves a reform of the family laws in my country. I’m no lawyer or politician, but I can study and make arguments, and so I hope to influence others to support good changes to our laws. If I can’t have marriage, perhaps my nephews and nieces can.

I think this one little paragraph captures the essence of the kind of God-pleasing sacrifice us guys are here for – to fight for justice and righteousness for others and those who come after, even at the expense of our own wants, needs, and desires.
