A Quacking Good Trek to Manhood
Growing up in a duck swamp doesn't sound all that appealing. Yet, that's exactly the way I did, grow up I mean. My father used an unorthodox set of parenting techniques to show me the path to becoming a real man.
Man. What a misunderstood word! At what point does a boy become a man? Is it when he turns twenty-one? Could it be on Graduation Day? Maybe it's when he sees the birth of his first child? The answer: None of the above. Manhood is a state of mind, pure and simple. It is an achievement culled from mistakes and triumphs. Age has nothing to do with it. Old men can be boys; boys can be men. The whole truth is men know when they have become men, and are treated as such.
Come join me on a journey with the ducks and find out how boys become men...
