Pizza, a good action movie, and a listening ear, I find. I've got two almost-godsons who are now 19 and 18, two goddaughters who are 18 going on 19, a godson who is sixteen, and a goddaughter who is 14. The boys aren't as verbal as the girls, but they respond just as well to a listening ear. So far, no unplanned pregnancies (for either group), no drug problems (that I know of) and only one of the six has had any significant other issues with family/home.

The main use for guns with the boys, IMHO, is so that we can invite them to go shooting with us, preferably on BLM land or in the desert with reactive targets. I think it's hardwired in a lot of boys (and not a few men) to think that it's just plain *cool* when things go BOOM! ;-) So I figure, let them learn about it in a good, safe way spending quality time with the adults in their lives.
