If you have boys at home, maybe they should read this

As an old fart, 72 at present what he says is true. It takes a great deal of work and dedication to turn a boy into a young man. I have had the opportunity to lead a scout troop and to watch little boys grow into at least the beginnings of young manhood. Too much of this has been lost for the reasons he points out. This does not bode well for our future as a nation and a civilized people. When new boys came into our troop I told them that this was not a religious revival so do not lay hands upon others, and if you cant say something nice keep your thoughts to yourself. The other thing I did was address the boys as Mr. either Mr. Smith or Mr. Jones but the respect I gave I got back from the boys. They referred to the adults as Mr. as well.
It is a process, to change young boys to young men. It is not easy but it is very rewarding,
