I caught a conversation recently over at Dalrock’s between several male commenters who also happen to be fathers. They were discussing all of the difficulties that come with raising sons and introducing them to the “Red Pill”, and then dealing with what happens after that introduction. Scott, who runs the Courtship Pledge, expressed a desire for a place to continue the conversation, as Dalrock’s wasn’t exactly the proper place for it. I am providing this post so that he and other fathers can continue the discussion. Furthermore, I’m not restricting participation only to biological or legal fathers. Men who are father figures to young men who need guidance through the “Red Pill” are also invited to participate. That can mean older brothers, uncles, cousins or a really close family friend.
One caveat that I should mention is that this post is primarily devoted to helping out Christian young men. As Deep Strength has explained recently, the deep philosophical differences between the secular manosphere and Christian manosphere lead down two different paths. Hence, any discussion needs to be geared towards one, or the other. And since this is a Christian blog, the focus of this post will be in helping, guiding, mentoring or teaching young Christian men.
As far as the discussion goes, I will leave it to those interested to voice their thoughts. I might chime in occasionally, but will leave it to them to kick it off. I will, however, be a bit more active in this post in terms of “trimming” off-topic discussion. If there is a big demand for it I will create a new off-topic post for folks to blow off some steam. But otherwise, keep to the topic. Since its a fairly broad one, I think that should be relatively easy to do.
