Whenever you do a "Like" on Facebook the page updates begin to show on your stream. A while back I "liked" a blog. And he "liked" a blog and then blogged about the blog he'd "liked." It's a veritable mutual admiration society, isn't it? But that's how we all share information in this digital age. So, the blog this blogger "liked" had posted 28 Rules for Fathers of Sons. There were four I particularly liked, though I kind of wish she had been a bit more thorough. I've paraphrased them, but I think I got the major gist.

Talk to him about sex. He needs to know all men are created equal.

Well, okay, I think what she meant was dads should be open and honest enough to show their boys what they've got, how it works, and what they can expect. I wish she'd expounded a little more. Or, maybe her point was that he should make them understand that all men have cocks and balls and there's no reason to be ashamed of them. But they should never tell a young man that all men are created equal in the dick department. Because eventually, we grow up and go into a locker room and discover it just ain't so...

Share secrets together. Talk about anything. Let him tell you about girls, friends, school. Listen. Ask questions. He is not only your son, you are not only his father. Be his friend too.

This is one very important rule! This is where a dad can really guide a son as a friend. Among all those other things, teach him about the brotherhood he belongs to, about loyalty to those who are loyal in return. Secrets between friends includes jacking off. Provide guidance and, to prove it's normal and healthy, give him the necessary supplies: Lube and a cum towel.


Teach him how to pee standing up - let him pee outside. It's a wonderful advantage men have that they can pee outside, anywhere and mom sure can't teach him this.

I really liked this rule, too. It's an important rule. What is it about taking a piss outdoors that is so great? I don't know, but it is. And not just out of necessity - like happens when you're out hiking or on a road trip and you have to pull over or piss your pants. Taking a leak in the great outdoors is just... well, it's great!

Dance with him in tightey-whiteys. Teach him there are moments when it's perfectly fine to be ridiculous.

Teach him to be carefree, to enjoy the sillier side of life. In reality, it's a very, very quick visit we get here and we should feel free to enjoy everything there is to enjoy.
Show off just for the fun of it.
 Defy the rules once in a while.
 Share amazing things with friends.

Get naked together just for the hell of it.

Enjoy that which you've been given.

Somehow I don't think i will be dancing around in my tighty whities with my dad, or chatting to him about girls or what really goes on in the men's restroom most of the time.

I understand what you are saying. And agree with most of it... but a dad dancing with his son only in undies...That sounds a little..well...wrong.

Wish my dad had taken the time to do some of these things - wish my dad had taken the time to do anything with me.

Great rules! Wished I had done more of this with my son. Hope he will do some of it with his son,

@ Justin - yeah, I know what you mean. Some dads just aren't cut out for sharing things with their sons. Kind of a pity, though. I think back and wonder how much closer, what a much better relationship I would have had with my own father if he'd been more open and honest, and a little more carefree.

@ QH - the crux of that rule is to teach a son that life shouldn't be so serious all the time; let loose and have some crazy, ridiculous fun once in a while. Dancing together in undies is optional.

@ Baldy - I'll second that! Growing up my dad avoided me - always. I was not "planned" and he sure as hell let me know he wasn't happy about having a third kid.

@ dl.miley - You can do more than "hope" that your son does more of those things with his own son - you can talk to your son and tell him you wish you'd done more with him and encourage him to spend more time with his son, teaching him all the necessary "guy things."
