I think that people should raise their sons and daughters equally. Letting the boys from a young age know that it’s perfectly fine to express themselves, can help them so much later on in life.

Boys tend to not have as strong of a connection with their friends as girls do, because they aren’t sharing problems and seeking help. Being more open with the people you’re close with could easily help them out a lot. Most males will only say things that are deep to a significant other, because they feel like it’s more accepted for them to share with a wife or girlfriend.

Boys will tell girls a lot more about their issues because they can end up feeling like they’re annoying or burdening their friends. They think of other guys as people they hang out with when they’re going to have fun. Whereas they should feel that they can explain to them what they’re having a problem with when something’s going bad in their lives.

Although it’s good that they can talk to females, they should generally learn to communicate with people in this sense early on. Holding things in isn’t ever healthy for them, and I feel that this should be something essential for a person to learn in elementary school.

I think it should be perfectly acceptable and welcomed with open arms if a boy starts crying. They’re allowed to have bad days just as any girl.

Being more honest with the people they’re close with would probably help them stop acting out as much. When they begin to know that they can be honest about things with their friends, they can actually be more attentive with other people. Getting the opportunity to talk things out with other people can give them a second opinion and they can figure out what to do.

They’d probably even be better when they have someone they’re dating. Although we know that relationships in school don’t last long, they won’t be as hurt after all of it. Their guy friends wouldn’t have some exaggerated reaction when rumors spread, because they probably know about most of their issues. If they learned how to express their feelings, their friends wouldn’t leave them, because they already know the little quirks.

They’d be less likely to lose their friends, because they would already know a lot of things about that person. This is because they’ve already shared a lot with them, as they would’ve returned back to them. This automatically makes things a lot better when it comes to losing friends, because it wouldn’t happen as often. They’d have a lot less stress on their plate, and they’d be a lot more calm.

Children wouldn’t act out as much. They’ll get more attention from their friends, because they want to listen and help out. It works best because the action would be mutual to both ends, and the kid would know that they can both be equally honest when it comes down to it.

Boys should be raised to be more emotionally honest, whether it’s with close friends, or family. Being able to get all of the issues off of your chest does actually help a lot in the end. Being able to trust someone to that extent really changes people, and will make them feel more important.
