I would add, don't get them a cell phone or their own computer until they graduate from high school. Make them use the family computer in a main area of the house.

Whatever you can do to keep them from getting addicted to the damn screens and to keep them from going down the horrible dark rabbit trails that are out there online, waiting to ensnare those kids who are susceptible and might be struggling.

It's so hard to grow up these days. Especially for young guys, making that transition to become men. Our culture is tearing them up.

Get them outdoors often, and involved with as many other good, real people they can see and smell and hug as possible while they are young and keep doing it....

From a mom with too many regrets...
