My Young Son,
Become handy. I highly recommend it. Clearly I am a girl, so being handy is not quite the prerequisite for me that it is for you, but not all men are handy either. And life is just a lot easier (and cheaper) if you're handy. So we will encourage you to do handy things and learn from your father, your grandfathers and, to the extent I'm able to teach you anything of worth, me too.
