This might be an odd topic to bring up, but my oldest son will soon be turning 13. Kind of a big deal to both him and I. So I’ve looking to make it a bit more special than just the normal birthday deal. He’s a lot more mature than other kids his age so I believe he’d really appreciate the significance of something like a rite of passage ordeal.
Has anyone else ever done anything similar? Any ideas that you might want to share. Unfortunately, we don’t have any other family in the area so as far as “male elders” it’s pretty much just me.
Plus, what would be a great gift idea to celebrate this event? Something that lets him know he is now becoming a man.
Again, I know this is probably an odd idea to some, but I really appreciate any ideas anyone might have. Thanks.
