Excellent article. Good men need to step out and assert themselves and not let the few bad actors out there define masculinity. Fathers need to be much more confident in being fathers. As a man who has raised adult children (son and daughters) let me give some advice on what worked for me.
Fathers, you become the “Heroic Man” for your children. You show them what it takes and by your example, demonstrated daily, you children – your sons especially – will know what it takes to be a good man. Don’t isolate yourself either, find an older man – your own father, or someone you know and trust to act as your “Heroic Man” in your time of need and moments of doubt. Older men need to step up to and become mentors to younger men so that they can become better husbands and fathers.
