Slacker and Steve - OPP: Sissy Step-Son (Audio)

April 29, 2016

Today’s OPP is from Adam and he needs your help! Here is what he said! 

 

Hey guys,

I got married last year and my wife has 3 kids from her previous marriage. Her son is 7 and before I came into the picture it was just him, his mom, and his two older sisters. His dad left when he was really young so he's been around females his whole life. The poor kid knows more about makeup and dolls then he does about sports. I'd bet it all that he couldn't tell you the difference between a football and a basketball. Now that I'm his dad I don't want him to get ridiculed at school for being so girly and I want to toughen him up some. I've been trying to get him into stuff boys should be into - I took him to a monster truck show, I try to get him to help in the garage, and we even went to a few football games in the fall. He just isn't getting it or showing much interest and I'm seriously worried it's going to damage him down the road. As a new dad, how do I turn my step-son into a man? I need some help guys because nothing I've been trying is working. 

-Adam

 

Do you think Adam should be trying to turn his step-son into a man? What advice do you have for Adam?

Adam's 7-year-old step-son has never had a male influence in his life. The young boy knows more about make-up and dolls, rather than sports. Adam wants to turn his step-son into a man, but he doesn't seem interested in doing the "boy stuff." What advice do you have for Adam?
