What does manliness look like any more? Just watch a few TV shows and you’ll be as confused as the average teenager.
A few clicks of the remote and you’ll find baffling trends in the male role models on television. The characters are either buffoons— portrayed as dim-witted weaklings… or they’re violent and abusive. These ugly stereotypes in entertainment have actually crept into the minds of our kids… teaching them that manliness is archaic.
Moms, Dads, let’s recognize the confusion this stirs up in the next generation of kids… and let’s take intentional effort to model something better. Dads … live out your inner strength, courage and integrity and be all the man God created you to be When they’re old enough to understand, your sons and daughters will thank you!
