I need help with my current WIP. My hero finds himself caring for his three year old niece. I need examples of things a man might do differently from a woman. For example, he puts a leash on the kid so she won’t get away from him in crowds. Or he let’s her eat ice cream straight from the carton so it doesn’t dirty a dish. Something that a woman might be alarmed at, but that really is just masculine, out-of-the-nurturing-box approach to child care and not only harmless, but might even be a better way. If I use your idea, I’ll gift you with a $10 gift card to B&N or Amazon, your choice. If it helps, the hero is a war vet struggling to integrate back into society and it’s Christmas time in Twilight. Yes, I’m going back to Twilight, Texas with this one.
