Stick to your guns
Nothing inspires young black men more than strong black women. That may seem like a tall order at times but a very simple way to show your boy how to be a man of integrity is to exhibit those qualities yourself. Manywomen have a hard time telling their babies something they don’t want to hear (like no) but that’s all part of being a man. Moreover, by not sticking to your word, you show him that he doesn’t need to either.
Say what you mean and mean what you say. He may not like it, but he’ll respect your word. And grow into a man that expects others to respect and trust his.
