Raising Boys to be Better Men with Rachel Giese


Raising Boys

Whether we're telling boys to "man up" or warned that "crying is for girls" young men are subjected to damaging messages about manliness: they must muzzle their emotions and never show weakness, dominate girls, and compete with one another. And yet we wonder why many men are emotionally unavailable. 

Rachel Giese is a journalist and author of Boys: What It Means To Become A Man. Her new book examines the myths of masculinity and the challenges facing boys today and how we might consider doing it differently. 

What you'll learn (or why you should care):

• The effects of toxic masculinity on boyhood development

• The dangers of raising boys in the 'man box'

• How we can expand our current definition of courage and strength to include vulnerability, authenticity, and transparency when it comes to emotions.
