Helping teen boys manage anger and failure
Webinar 3 - From Boys to Men Webinar Series with Maggie Dent
From Maggie Dent's bestselling book, From Boys to Men, this webinar stands alone or as part of our 3-part webinar series.
We all get angry from time to time, it's a normal human emotion. However, because of what's happening in their brains and bodies – and because of the deep conditioning that anger is a more acceptable emotion for males than, say, sadness – teen boys can particularly struggle with their anger. For those of us living or working with teen boys, it can be challenging to respond calmly and compassionately when faced with an adolescent's immature, explosive reaction contained within an often-man-sized body.
In this webinar, Maggie looks at why anger is not the problem, more a symptom of a deeper concern. She explores why teen boys' poor choices, mistakes and failures often lead to anger and despair – and how we can better respond to help our boys cope and recover from muck up moments.
» ways to coach our teen boys to better manage their anger and understand the feelings under it
