Dad matters too
Growing up we are constantly told to be a big boy and don’t cry. So in other words be big and tough and keep your feelings bottled up inside, certainly don’t share them.
In the UK today as the infographic says, 72% of people treated for depression are female, but 75% of people who take their own lives are male.
It’s Fathers Day today, so please anyone reading this that has a little boy, drop “big boy” from your vocabulary and encourage him to be happy the way he is and to be comfortable to share his feelings.
Happy Fathers Day.
