Guy teaches little brother his ‘duties as a man’ in video that takes the most wholesome turn

Families often have different ages that they teach children about a big life topics. Some conversations are bigger than others, but generally speaking they’re had with the best of intentions. Anish Bhagatt felt like the time was finally right to teach his younger brother, Dhruva, his “duties as a man.” The little boy had just turned 12, so certain talks needed to be had and Bhagatt felt he was best suited for the job.

The older brother picked Dhruva up from school to take him on his journey to manhood. From the look on the little boy’s face, he knew he was in for a treat hanging out with his older brother. This may not have been the chat he was expecting, but the boy soaked up the knowledge eagerly.

Bhagatt started the video by saying, “So Dhruva, you’re a big man now,” before the little boy happily interjects stating, “Yes, I’m 12!”

Immediately the conversation shifted into a direction that surprised commenters. Instead of launching into a talk about the birds and the bees, Bhagatt asked if his younger brother knows about periods, which did not come with any of the stereotypical middle school boy disgust. Dhruva was engaged as his brother explained what periods were and why women have menstrual cycles. He even showed the preteen how to purchase sanitary products. People were impressed.

“This is healing generations of silence and toxicity. Well done, gentlemen,” one woman says.

“The fact that it was his BROTHER that took him to go buy sanitary pads. Not his mom, not a sister. His brother. This is what good male role models are like,” another writes.

“Ok guys, this is what people mean when they say healthy masculinity! Big bro is a Saint, and little bro is so sweet and compassionate! I am amazed and thrilled that people like this exist,” someone else gushes.

“I am literally CRYING right now! Oh my gracious… these young folks will save us,” a commenter cries.

The video is beyond wholesome and may serve as an example of what it looks like to educate young boys on what half the population goes through. In the end the boy declares, “I promise that I will make all the girls around me feel safe,” and if he keeps having these kinds of chats, there’s no doubt that he will do just that.
