Wonderful Wednesday- For The Boys, 32 Great Advice To Give Your Son


I know what’s it like raising daughters and though I don’t have sons, I also know what’s like like raising a son.  I have brothers and nephews, though boys have always gotten a bad report for being rough around the edges and sometimes can be unmanageable, deep down inside they can be just as sweet as daughters.
