In my travels of traditionally minded blogs there is often the reference that women need to ALLow men to lead. The implication here is that a husband can’t be the leader of his household or demonstrate any masculine traits until the wife first allows him. This is not leadership, at least not by the husband. If he has to sit around waiting to get permission to lead, how is this leadership? The men who think they have no power until women allow them, in fact give ALL the power to women.
Do parents sit around waiting for their children to allow them to parent, discipline, lead them in right ways? No, at least not if you understand your natural place of authority. But like weak parents, there are weak men–who let their kids and their women call the shots, in hopes that one day they will be given the reigns to what already belongs to them.
