“We are more aware of negative things that trigger our partner and more open to seeing from each other’s point of view. We learned how to listen to each other, relate to how the other is feeling, and understand what they are trying to communicate.”

Inside the Lesson

In this episode, Rosalind Wiseman, world-renowned speaker and author of Masterminds and Wingmen—Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World, offers wisdom, healing, and hope to parents of teenaged boys. Based on her interviews with over 160 young men, Rosalind cuts right to the heart of the issue by asking, “What does it mean to be a man in today’s society?” Between societal pressures, broken familial relationships, and an oversexed culture, teenaged boys are faced with a difficult choice: to become society’s definition of a man or become the man they were born to be. With practical tips and timely insight into the inner life of teen boys, Rosalind and podcast host, Noel Meador, unpack what parents can do to (1) encourage their son to open up about his feelings, (2) talk to him about romantic relationships without prying, (3) safeguard him against bullying, (4) and much more. Parents: Are you struggling to have an open and honest relationship with your son? Do you wish you knew how to help him? Do you want more for your son than society has given him? Then this episode is not to be missed!
