Message for all parents of young men

Saturday, May 31, 2014

The following link zenhabits.net/respect/ contains an important message for all parents of young men but is directed to fathers who probably have the most influence over their boys because they tend to emulate their fathers. It is disturbing to me as a father to four daughters (although they are now grown up and have families of their own) how the mass media tends to treat women as objects who should bow to the sexual fantasies of powerful men. If more parents had taught their sons to respect women as equals and not as mere sexual objects then perhaps the events in California that led a young man to begin a killing spree because his sexual fantasies were not fulfilled would not have happened.

    Both my DH and I have taught BOTH kids (1 DD, 1 DS) how important it is to treat everyone with dignity. This tragedy was indeed senseless and I sometimes wonder if technology has succeeded in "dehumanizing" the value of each and every person!

Thank you for this wonderful articls.
