About 4 years ago, I had a young man write a letter to his father sharing his heart with him. This young man had been suspended from school for well over 10 days in a school year; he was constantly in trouble, detention, altercation and arguments, very angry about life and his situation. In his letter, he cried out emphatically for his father to call him 7 times, not caring about what they would do together, only to spend time together. “WHEN WILL IT END,” it ends when we MAN-UP!
MANLY MODELING is a Masculine Mentoring Initiative for boys, teens, college-age students and adults….Helping them MAN-UP in their stage of responsibility by providing that personal, presence engagement of one Man-2-the-Next! We’re not just offering advice and skills to instill and establish principles of manhood into our mentees, who we call “WARRIORS,” but we’re releasing our presence through personal relationship to encourage, empower and equip our WARRIORS to lead responsible and mature lives, both now and throughout the future.
A nurturing parent who clearly understands and accepts the importance that his parenting skills have in developing the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, and creative needs of his children. A positive role model who works to build and maintain healthy and supportive relationships with his children. A father who understands the unique contributions he brings to raising his children (i.e., the difference between “fathering” and “mothering”). Aware of himself as a man and aware of the significant impact he has in his family. We can help you get there!
When A KEY Element is missing, the Landscape changes and it will never be what it was originally intended to be without the re-introduction of that Key ELEMENT…Nor should it be! – Jonathan Greer (CEO/President – The MAN-UP Movement)
