Parenting is very personal thing. My point of view is passing penis insecurities to your sons makes you a bad father. I’d rather be an evil bastard than take the chance of being a bad father any-day.
I agree with that, and I suppose I don’t look at it as an insecurity thing. I look at it as a piece of male knowledge, about ones relationship as a male with the world.
My parents divorced when I was about 11. My father went through massive depression, and basically abandoned his duties. I’m the eldest of 3 children, my brother and my sister do not talk to him, but I do because I remember how he was. When I was about 14 he told me to think of him as a friend rather than a father, and to be honest, I wouldnt have a person like him as a friend. It makes me sad to say that.
So, I suppose I’m a bit tainted in my views. But I do see this as knowledge, and knowledge should be passed on in my opinion. What a person does with that knowledge is up to them.
