Why Don’t We Teach Boys and Men?

We have another dead baby in our community. This one was left in a tub and drowned while mom’s boyfriend was babysitting. My heart aches everytime I read one of these stories. Mom’s boyfriend shook baby until baby was brain dead. Mom’s boyfriend beat baby to death. I truly believe most of these cases occur because we don’t teach males how to deal with crying babies. We still see childrearing as a female duty. We have got to start actively teaching boys how to be responsible and responsive parents and caregivers. Our babies’ lives depend on it.
