    Never start a fight. And never run from one either.

    I’m sorry but this guy is a huge wimp. If someone said anything like that to me as a kid it wouldn’t have even registered.

    I don't have kids but I do know the more sincere, humble and honest my parents (or anyone was/is to me) is a great learning moment. Someone's past mistake or weaknesses can become a connection and inspiration and passed on wisdom for others. I find great respect for the power of truth and wisdom people give to others. I think the more a person or parents hide their past, ignore or hides their imperfections and mistakes, it just keeps them stuck and carries on ignorance, repeated patterns and shame. Don't you want people to learn from you, especially your children?

    Im not sure whats worse, parents that are there and care but are oblivious Or parents who dont care at all and you cant count on them for anything. Blessings to this guy and his bravery. My memories of school was 6 years of a never ending nightmare. ☠

    We cannot equalize the qualities of masculinity and femininity lest we wish to crash and burn.

    I tried the whole it’s ok to cry scenarios with my kids while they were growing up because what I was being told is that what I was (being unemotional) was not a good thing. I just never felt the need to be over emotional and everything around me in the media and all the like were saying that I was wrong for being that way. I thought maybe all these other people were right but they weren’t. What I was teaching was completely opposite of what I was and it did nothing but create a state of confusion in my kids because I was trying to teach something that I was not. Now they are complete shut ins and live with their mom and don’t know how to interact with the world and it’s all my fault for not teaching them what was true to me. Dads need to be themself with their kids more than be what the world wants their kids to be.

    The creative mind doesn’t experience the world the same as many.

    I was bullied a lot in school cause of my eyes. I also had a lot of fights in school because of it. My six year old told me that there were some kids in his class bullying him. Guess what I did. My son is now enrolled in Jujitsu class. Violence isn’t the first answer but sooner or later, dominance will stop said bullying.

    That makes no sense. So instead of guiding your son you will let him be to scared to stand up for himself? You will not teach him how to react in these situation. Wow. What kind of kids are we raising now?
