Solo Show this week!
First – continues thanks for all of the feedback around the last solo show, where I shared about navigating my daughters mental health issues. It means the world to me to know that the content of the show is landing for you, and making a difference in your life!
This week I am talking about our boys.
We have to do better for our boys
Partners – emotional intelligence is for everyone
Routine of talking about how we feel
It’s not coddling – if we keep toughening them up and having them suppress how they feel we will continue to see cultures where war and violence exist
Not from a place of fear
We all get to be full humans
Boys and their fear of labels
More than just “walk away”
Saving face w/o being a dick
Being a champion
People like him. He can take criticism, doesn’t make people choose friends, and doesn’t blow off someone for a better offer. When people are harassed or demeaned, he intervenes. He’s comfortable hanging out with guys who are both inside and outside the box. He holds his own opinion, but still listens to others.
TALK ABOUT IT BEING HARD
VALIDATE THEIR EXPERIENCE
SUPPORT THEM IN RESPONSES TO LIFE
This isn’t helicoptering
Belonging significance influence
Aren’t feeling it, they will take it where they can
Insecure OR entitled
All boys fall into a role where they feel safe
Talk to your boys
Talk about emotions
Check your “should/shouldn’t’ at the door
Be open, own your mistakes, encourage them when you see life skills on display
Love them up
