Love That Boy free pdf "Tyler and I inch toward the Green Room, in line with blow-dried TV anchors and stuffy columnists. He s practicing his handshake and hello: It s a pleasure to meet you, Mr. President. It s a pleasure to meet you, Mr. President. It s a pleasure to meet you, Mr. President. When the couple in front of us steps forward for their picture, my teenager with sky-blue eyes and a soft heart looks up at me and says, I hope I don t let you down, Dad. ""What kind of father raises a son to worry about embarrassing his dad? I want to tell Tyler not to worry, that he d never let me down. That there s nothing wrong with being different. That I actually am proud of what makes him special. But we are next in line to meet the president of the United States in a room filled with fellow strivers, and all I can think about is the real possibility that Tyler might embarrass himself. Or, God forbid, me." LOVE THAT BOY is a uniquely personal story about the causes and costs of outsized parental expectations.
