How to get my son to like males more? – I have a 26 month old son, and he hates men, all men, he doesn’t even like his own father, grandfather, uncles ect, wondering if there was any tips on how to get him to warm up to the males in his life. Thank you

  • I would start at home and increase dad’s involvement with your son (meaning you also need to step back a bit yourself). The more love & fun experiences your son will have with the most important male in his life, the more this will impact his the contact he’ll have with other males.

  • Hopefully it was something he has now grown out of. Really hoping there wasn’t some sinister reason for his dislike

  • hope this issue resolved itself by now but also there might be an underlying issue as to why so make sure you find out ok

  • hopefully it’s just a stage and he will grow out of it.

  • you may just have to engage him with men more.

  • there are some good comments here

  • Interesting. Has he had a bad experience with a male before?

  • How is he going now?

  • Try encouraging dad to take a more active role in play time…?

  • maybe provide some time (with you there) where the males are involved in fun things. maybe go to the zoo and let hubby push the stroller and grandpa buy him an ice-cream

  • Have you had any luck with the suggestions below?

  • how did it go? :)

  • Might be just a phase that he will grow out of

  • Did you son end up liking males?

  • I hope its just a phase for you good luck
