The world needs men, better men.
To have better men – not men filled with toxic masculinity – we need better boys. Boys who are raised in the new masculinity. This is a job for fathers.
“All children need their fathers, but boys especially need their fathers to teach them to become men.” – Dwayne Wade
Boys learn what it means to be a man first from their fathers before they learn from other male role models. These conversations are essential in first of all helping fathers examine their own perceptions of masculinity and then equipping them to raise their sons in the new masculinity.
#1 Emotions and Mental Health Most of us will spend an average of 90,000 hours at work over our entire lifetime. So, preferably, it should be meaningful work that we are engaged in. Dubbed The Great Resignation, many are unhappy with their jobs and are expected to leave them this year to find something they are more passionate about.
Passion is a term used a lot lately and is used to describe anything between biology and blogging, and academia and acting. Should one choose his career based on his passion or on purpose? More than about career choice, it is about identity formation. Upon reaching adolescence, ‘Who am I?’ will be the question on your son’s mind. How will you help him to answer? How will you guide him to find, follow, and fulfil his purpose in life?
#2 Purpose and Passion The people with the strongest sense of purpose in life had a more resilient stress response. People with greater purpose also tend to practice more self-care and spend fewer days in the hospital when they do get sick. The benefits also occur at the cellular level – they tend to have less belly fat, higher insulin sensitivity, and have reduced risk of stroke and improved functioning of immune cells. (Kim, E. S., et al. (2013) and Boylan (2015)) Come and find out more about how to find purpose in your life and help your son find his
#3 Courage and Character. Fathers want their boys to be brave and not cowards. What does it mean to be brave? Is cowardice the opposite of courage? How many kinds of courage are there and how do we teach our boys to possess such courage?
#4 Sexuality and Testosterone What make a man a man? How does testosterone affect him? How can fathers raise boys in a sex-crazed world?
