My older brother, an accomplished 35 year mechanic and single father, is fond of saying that unlike cars little girls do not come with owner’s manuals. Dads who are raising sons can chime in the same thought. Thankfully, my niece is 20 years older than Sweetie, so when my brother speaks it is like reading an owner’s manual. He inspired this section.
This is the “how-to” part of the conversation. I want to share some details on things that help me in raising Sweetie. If you have something constructive to share, please add it. We are raising the future, men, let’s work on getting it right.
