Motherhood is serving as an excellent tamer of adolescent ways. Now this is not applying to everyone and of course some still fall along the way side as far as my observations go, but I've noticed many young women decide to put their children before anything else these days which I find admirable. I mean of course that's what your supposed to do anyway, but I find it shocking how fast nine months changes a person's way of thinking from wild and outlandish to conservative and motherly. However I've noticed a child doesn't change the way men think. For a while, men care about their children as babies, but for the most part leave most of the nurturing work to the ladies. They may re-enter at some point later on down the line but my observations have just been too inconsistent with males to make any claims. But women really do put their children first as far as finances go, time spent, and even medical treatment. As I guy, I hear a child cough I don't really think nothing of it. But I've seen women jump from whatever they're doing to rush the child to a hospital. I find it amazing how motherhood changes women's outlooks.
But what is it for males? What is it that will drive us to all new levels of maturity? Whenever do we take supreme initiative for anything responsible? I know for most of us, it's not graduation, fatherhood, holy matrimony, or even work. We still find time to have and squeeze fun out of something. I'm inclined to say it's when we're likely to hit mid-life crisis stages, but even then men do whatever it takes to feel young again. But I'm curious now, what will it take for men to be tamed? What will eventually cause us to take that huge leap into maturity?
