Teacher Addresses People Who Tell Boys to ‘Man Up’ and Her Opinion Has People Talking

In fact, she’s telling parents to stop encouraging their sons to “man up” because boys should be able to talk about their problems the same way girls do. And of course, not everyone agrees with her on this topic, too.
