Parenting Boys

As parents, what can we do to raise healthy boys?  How is parenting boys different from parenting girls?  Does our culture support healthy emotional development in boys?  As societal views of gender are changing, how can you teach your son about appropriate behavior and expectations?  According to Michael Thompson, Ph.D, author of Raising Cain:  Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys, "by understanding boys better, we can discover effective strategies for raising them and work together to help them feel safe, help them achieve academically, and help them grow into happier, more responsible young men."  This class will explore questions like these and help you to formulate a plan for helping your son grow into a man you will like and admire.  

This class is for parents of boys of all ages.
