Maggie Hamilton: What No-One Tells About Boys: The Positive Impact You Can Make

Session Info:

Life is complex for today’s boys. In this parent and son session, parents gain a much more intimate sense of what makes teen boys so defensive. Discover why hair, shoes and brand-name clothing matters. Why anger is the only acceptable emotion. The unique pressure on boys when parents separate. Why teen boys drawn to ‘out there’ behaviour and how crippling shame can be. Why boys enjoy video games. What motivates so many boys to lead secret lives. What the concerns are around drinking. How vulnerable boys are in this hyper-sexualised climate.

As the evening progresses boys will gain a powerful window into their parent’s lives, learning to distinguish between a child’s view of the world and that of an adult – what it means for boys to see things from other perspectives, and how empowering this can be.
