"How do you measure the impact of one man on another man's son?”
Our young men and teens want to be amazing, creative, successful people. They are trying to succeed in a society that sends them the wrong messages about what is ‘cool' and what is admired. They struggle with this – so what is the right thing to do?
A young man is cruising along in his life – then he hits a ‘speed bump'. All of the junk in the back of his car comes flying to the front and through the windshield. He has just crashed – does he know what to do next?
Our young people face a multitude of ‘speed bumps' – divorce, romantic disappointments, bullying, family situations, an unexpected death – the list is long. When a young man hits one of these bumps, he runs the risk of being derailed. A disconnection takes place. He is amazingly gifted and destined for wonderful things, but he can't cope with this crash. He may start trying to cope by isolating himself, using drugs, engaging in risky sexual behavior, or he may become depressed. Our young men want to be great, but sometimes become ‘stuck' in the reality of high school and young adult life. Their coping mechanisms become ingrained, and they lose confidence, self-esteem, and hope. Parents often react in non-productive ways, further promoting these negative behaviors, without meaning to.
A teen or young man that has suffered through this kind of a crash needs a connection – one he is probably not willing to try with a parent or frien
