    both dh and ds express their feelings, sometimes they hide for a bit, but they are horrible at masking it.

    My husband and son do a really good job with expressing their emotions.

     DH does show his emotions- but he is such a laid back person so it takes A LOT to get him mad or upset. Our boys definitely show any emotions they have:)
