Casey Mae Pescia Perry Oh Kim, I so understand that. Dropping my 5yr old off on the days he begs me not to make him go and I see those eyes, those frightened little eyes as I pull away, I just want to break down and cry myself.

Society is really hard on both genders and teaching boys its okay to be emotional goes against what American society thinks and is confusing for these boys. Yes, its ok to be human, son, in fact itw ill help your mental state of being to let it out sometimes.

Crying is certainly better than lashing out physically when you can't take it anymore. You're no less "a man" for shedding a trear, in fact you're more of one for not letting strangers dictate what you should do.
