What if my son wants to join the army?

Becoming a Man

With all of the mixed messages in society today, it's hard for a young man to know exactly what is expected of him. Should he join the army? Become a day trader? Sweep his girlfriend off her feet? Expect her to open the door for herself?

Give your son some space to figure out where he fits in, and what he wants to be. Sure, if he wants to go on a navy sub to see the world, this might be different from you wanting him to be a doctor. There's always time for him to take up medicine later, and the decision making and soul searching he works through will serve him well, no matter what his eventual course in life.
