Understanding and Nurturing Boys 

There has been a LOT of discussion lately about raising boys who are whole, happy, healthy, and empathetic. As the mother of two boys, I have been on the lookout for insight in this department for many years myself. It is one of the areas I am most passionate about as a parent AND as a parent educator.

I recently spoke at my sons’ elementary school on the topic of Nurturing Boys and had great response, so I’ve decided to put together a class to delve a little deeper into the topic.
I hope you can join me.

There was also interest in forming a Parents of Boys Support Group. We’ll get together on a regular basis to gain support and insight in dealing with thoughts, ideas, and feelings that come up around raising boys. Please let me know if you are interested in more details about that.

 
Understanding and Nurturing Boys Class
In this two hour class, we’ll delve deeper into the following topics… 
 
– The landscape our boys are being raised in and the pressure they (and their parents) often feel to live within a restrictive and often harsh “boy code.” 
 
– How emotions directly impact their behavior including aggression, unpredictable outbursts, inability to “perform” well at school and at home, withdrawing or shutting down, and difficulty in social settings and friendships. 
 
– Game-changing tools that grow empathy and support your boys’ ability to have better relationships with friends and family, pay attention, cooperate, and resolve conflicts. 
 
Support for YOU as a parent to address your own feelings about the boy you are raising.
