A Community Discussion on Raising Boys

March 12, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5

This discussion will be facilitated by Laura Booker, psychotherapist and gender and sexuality expert. There is no registration required and a $5 donation is suggested. All are welcome.

All parents want to raise happy, healthy and emotionally connected boys. As our culture bombards us with messages and stories about who boys are: emotionally void, distracted and sexually aggressive, we parents aspire to raise sons that are so much more. This event is the first in a series of discussions focused on how a community can collectively support boys and help them best develop their authentic and compassionate selves. The discussion will also cover the notion of today’s masculinity.

Topics to be discussed include:

How do we foster empathy, connection and friendship with and among boys?

How do we raise boys to have a healthy relationship to partners and sexuality?

How boys suffer from gender oppression and what we can do?

How do we create a community of parents with similar values around sexuality and violence so that each family isn’t working alone.
