I thoroughly enjoyed the article on teaching boys how to tie a tie on the way to manhood (“‘When I learned to tie a tie, I thought I was a man’: In West Baltimore, a school lesson in neckties, manhood,” Dec. 20).

I say this with respect, but in addition to the ties, teach the boys to respect their elders and women, and you will have truly shown a boy how to become a man.
