If you are in need of cash, I will understand if my son provides that for you, but he should have a firm understanding of what such a transaction may mean.If my son is in need of cash (though I pray to God he won't be) I would appreciate it if you'd help him out.Let’s just get this out of the way first: Yes, I’ve been noticeably absent for several months. Also, since I have sons, I shall refer to that particular meme. It assumes that (a) my son isn’t capable of making his own decisions or standing up for himself, (b) because he’s a man, he will be unable to resist a woman who dresses “like a stripper” and sends sexts, regardless of any of her other traits — good or bad — and (c) I’m responsible for him and his happiness for the rest of his life. If you spend any time on the vast stretches of the internet, especially social media, you’ve probably seen images like these popping up all over the place over the last however-many months: I’ve seen people share these on Facebook and Twitter, touting them as being the Next Big Thing in parenting. But publicly dictating controlling and sexist “rules” for your child’s emergence into adulthood? I have a number of issues with these memes, but let me stick to the main one . Nevertheless, I take exception to this meme for the inferences it makes about them, and about me.
Not mine or my sons’ problem, they are your problem and you do not want to make them mine or my sons’ problem.
But for right now, I have something else I’d like to talk about.
I’m sure there’s someone else out there with girls who is, at this very moment, taking offence to the Rules for Dating my Daughter. Well, colour me silly (which is a shade of fuschia), but I’d like to think that by the time my boys start dating, I will have raised sons who are independent, intelligent, and discerning.
It is my job to teach my son responsibility and self-respect, and prepare him to make his own well-informed decisions.
And I definitely made some mistakes, which I learned from and, frankly, I had some fun in the process of learning, too. Trust me, mothers of sons can be just as psychotic as fathers of daughters, and to avoid that, I have come up with the following rules for dating my son:. Just pray I manage to instil that self respect, responsibility and ability to make well-informed decisions….
