As the Father of three sons, I found this short article to be helpful in thinking through the development of my sons:
What’s the best way to help your son thrive?
Spending time with your son is one of the most powerful ways to help him thrive. Don’t know what to do? Try these tips!
1. Add a little adventure. God wired boys to crave adventure. Go camping, travel to a new place or surprise him with a day off school and a special father-son outing.
2. Be heroes together. Never underestimate the power of helping others. Take time to serve someone in your neighborhood or at your church that needs your help.
3. Try something new. What has your son always wanted to do? Ask him—and don’t be afraid to say “yes!”
