    Great post, Danny!

    I would add, or maybe I should summarize:

    If you want to raise a pansy, then be a pansy.

    Wait for your wife to apologize first when you hurt each other. Skirt responsibility. Whine a lot. Isolate yourself. Make excuses. Talk about everything that’s wrong with the world like you’re a victim of lots of sinful people who live all around you. Keep a very solemn countenance, suggesting that life is too serious to enjoy it, and you have deep thoughts that nobody would understand.

    Whatever kind of man you are, your son is very likely to follow in your footsteps.

    Could you do a topical Tuesday post on dinasours? Like where do they fit in with the whole creation story? Did Adam and Eve (or any human) get to see a dinasour? Did they not fit on the ark? Or was God just testing out to see what animals would work and wouldn’t and decide the dinasours wouldn’t work on that “day” he created all the animals? (Assuming the term “day” meant a couple thousand years)

    Danny…respectfully submitted as #10.

    10. Never let them feel pain. If you are going to raise a pansy, make sure they never are hurt, emotionally or physically. Show them that difficulty is the enemy and adversity means you wilt like…well…ah pansy. Model to them that men run from challenge and never accept pain for greater good. Add in some examples of soaking any hurt they do have in activity, busy-ness, and substances.
