All societies that have survived have survived based on their ability to prepare their sons to be disposable, in war and at work--and therefore as dads.warren farrell

The more our children see men being paid to take responsibility for children, the more respectable it will be for men to do work compatible with their role as dads.warren farrell
The deeper purpose of a more positive attitude toward men is a better life for the children who are parented by the men who are their dads and stepdads; less shame for our sons who will become men; and, for our daughters, a deeper understanding of men's desire to please that leaves them feeling their willingness to please is not unrequited but returned--allowing our daughters to feel less lonely and more loved. If we earn more and love less, we pay for a home in which we do not live.warren farrell
