MOTHERS and Making Good Men

This article, written by New Zealander Jo Bailey and reported in ManAlive news, is about Celia Lashlie, a former prison guard who speaks to the dilemma facing concerned mothers who are raising boys. She gives some surprising advice to mom's and yet another call for the men to step forward.

"If adolescent boys could tell their mothers one thing, what would it be?

Chill out and stop asking so many questions...!

Boys want their mothers to understand they know she's there, that she cares and that they will talk to her if something big happens in their lives, but they also need some space from her on their journey to manhood. What they do need is a lot less mollycoddling from mum and significantly more time spent with the good men in their lives."
