I realize I’m not a man, but as a mother, I realize the importance of young boys learning from their father’s, grandfathers, uncles, older brothers, or role models of what it means to be a man and how to grow up to be a young man of integrity. The Art of Manliness is a website that features articles, tips, tutorials, videos and even podcasts on subjects that pertain to being a man of integrity.
So, with Father’s Day just a few weeks away, I thought I’d share with you a little more about The Art of Manliness and some of the resources and articles available on this awesome website.
- You can subscribe to a daily or weekly newsletter entitled “Master the Art of Manliness.”
- You can read posts.
- You can listen to podcasts.
- You can visit the library of random manliness.
They have a couple of great little eBooks that you can download:
- 30 Days to a Better Man
- The Art of Manliness – Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man (Available for purchase through Amazon and Barnes & Noble)
The Art of Manliness also offers some great tutorials, such as:
- How to Tie a Tie
- How to Tie a Bow Tie
- How to Develop the Situational Awareness of Jason Bourne
- DIY – How to Make a Pocket Notebook
The pictures on the site kind of remind me of my father. It was very important to my father that his appearance was presentable, his tie tied just right, his hair combed perfectly and his face always neatly shaven. One of the things I remember my dad obsessing over the most was his hair. He had thick, black hair and he wanted it to lay a certain way – at all times. He loved his Brylcreem. I even remember the commercials, “Just a little dab’ll do ya!” I think my dad didn’t hear the “little” part.
Wishing all the dad’s in your lives a very Happy Father’s Day!
