Boys have so many gifts and strengths and - thanks to changing social norms and concepts of manhood - there has never been more opportunity for boys to be who they want to be. However, we also live in a world where in recent years being a male is often seen as problematic. Our young boys and adolescents are getting a lot of negative messages about being male and this can (and does) become a self-fulfilling prophecy. In their hearts, though, every boy ever born is a beautiful human with enormous potential. We all need to work with our boys to help them grow into open-hearted men of good character who value and respect themselves and others.
In this very special masterclass, ‘boy champion’ and mum of four sons Maggie Dent is joined by one of the world’s best-known parent educators, and a family psychologist for almost 30 years, Steve Biddulph, to empower parents and others in how to raise their boys with character. Steve has been working with men and writing international bestsellers about boys and manhood for three decades.
“Right now, the world badly needs good men,” Steve says. And dads, mums, aunties, uncles, grandparents and teachers all have a job to do in making that happen. He and Maggie will spell out just what that is in this unforgettable webinar.
Maggie and Steve will share some stories and strategies around:
→ Why worry about boys?
→ The new science of boys' brains & stages of development
→ The 5 tricky times in boyhood every parent needs to understand
→ Boys and dads, and boys without dads – and the father wound
→Boys and mums – and the mother wound
→ Challenging unhelpful social norms like boys are tough & dismissing unacceptable behaviour as simply ‘boys will be boys’
→ Best tips for communicating with boys
→ Helping boys understand and embrace self-worth
→ Respectful relationships in a porn-driven culture
→ Risk and resilience for our young men.
… and more.
With their trademark warmth, humour, and truckloads of wisdom built on lived-experience, Maggie and Steve will share how we can raise wonderful young men with backbone and heart, even in this digital world.
