My own thought caught me off guard today. Aside from being a husband and father searching for my own manhood, I am a Special Education teacher in a Middle School. There are constant discussions and debates over the roles of teachers and the lines they can and should cross, and what it means to “educate” children. Maybe I come back around to this idea over and over, because I have written a post about this before. Click on the link and feel free to leave a comment on my Education Blog. Where are these boys seeing manhood for 6-7 hours everyday? Who shows them how to try, fail, and try again as men? Who is there to say “so what?” “Suck it up”, “pull it together”, or “be a man”?
Not many, that’s who.
