“The topic of feelings is still a taboo subject for young boys. Boys are brought up to be “brave”, “strong”, “no crying” and to keep their feelings
hidden. This, at times, creates all kinds of behavioral problems for our children.
It is time to help our sons to be okay with exploring the topic of feelings, without getting pressure from society to do otherwise. Being sensitive to others’ feelings as well as their own will help them to grow up to be good men. It is un-cool to be stoic.”
