Real boys do cry!
"Boys do cry - but they find it much harder than girls to talk about their feelings or seek help when they are distressed, new research shows."
Read this article about a study done on boys, 10-14, and how they learn to NOT express themselves. They found that 47 per cent said they never talked about their feelings... ouch.
And here's the real eye-opener -- they found that the More time the boys spent with their Fathers, the Less they expressed their feelings. Not good. Single-parent homes are where the kids are learning that it IS ok to feel. Why? (imho)
