The Need For The Mentorship of Young Men

Sons need their dads. Despite what many single “independent woman that don’t need no man” moms might say.
I was real lucky. When my mom left my biological dad we moved to the Bronx from New Jersey. Around that time I had several “father” figures in my life.
Starting with my step-dad. He hooked up with my mom after we left NJ and they made my beautiful baby sister. The princess of princesses! Although the parents had a rocky relationship, at least HE was around, unlike my biological dad who did not put up much of a fight to be in my life.
Aside from step-pops, I also had two of my uncles living close by…and I spent a lot of time with these younger brothers of mama-eagle. She would plop me in their laps and put them on baby sitting duty.
So many positive childhood memories involved being around these men and learning things like how to shave, work on a car, and the proper way to hold a New York slice of pizza. I never thought much of it as a child….I just was hanging out with pop and Tio’s (Spanish for “uncle”).
To this day I still look to these men as mentors and advisors. As far as I am concerned, I won the damn lottery.
Growing in NYC in the 80’s and 90’s, there were thousands of kids running around the streets without ANY adult supervision. Many instances I observed the mom leaving the apartment to go work because dad left them, then the older brother or sister had to play parent and watch over the younger siblings.
These were kids raising kids….before that term became synonymous with teen pregnancy.
When kids are unsupervised and BORED they do dumb shit. Running from roof top to roof top. Fighting. Stealing. Making babies.
In today’s age fathers are repeatedly bullied by the media and population at large. It has come to my attention that the idea of being a dad is now a bumbling fool who must be rescued by the all knowing super mom.
Meanwhile, young men are going through childhood without positive male figures. Certainly there are dead beat dads, but a lot of good men are being ripped from their son’s lives by the pro-mom court systems.
I have countless acquaintances that are not allowed to spend time with their sons. This shit is fucking barbaric!
I’ve resigned to opt out of marriage already. And given the state of affairs here in the Matrix, I probably won’t have kids either. However I still feel a responsibility to pass on my knowledge to the next generation.
Last year, I volunteered with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America. It was fun. I mentored this young man whose dad split up with the mom. I took him to the movies, fishing and we played video games in my apartment.
He was only 11 at the time, but I managed to nudge a couple of red-pill traits into his mind. It’s never too early to learn a fundamental truth.
If you’re like me and don’t have hell-spawn of your own….perhaps consider bringing a young man under your wing. We are fortunate to have survived this long in life and we can take the lessons we’ve learned the hard way and help someone avoid the BS in the first place.
The job of the new generation is to surpass the previous generation…but these young men won’t make it if they don’t get help. Even if you’re just making youtube videos and sharing it with the world you’re doing more than so many shit-bags in this country can account for!
Consider being a mentor. Peace and stay focused!
