Good Men Project (Parenting)
An excellent model for the new manhood. I review the new movie, starring Chris Evans and Mckenna Grace.
We tell our sons that real men overcome their fears. Is that the right message? Sometime courage is the ability to say, "I can't right now."

My father liked to travel. He took us with him. I converted decades-old slides to digital, and it encouraged a reflection.
From plush monsters and Halloween ghouls to public speaking and failure, we can defeat our fears. A reflection on how kid fears (cue Indigo Girls) reflect and become more nuanced and complex adult fears.
Research consistently shows that spanking does more harm than good, and yet parents keep doing it. I offer some ideas on how to guide a child properly, rather than striking them.
