Bringing Up Boys

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Parents often feel like they’re getting it wrong, but is there a right way to bring up boys?

Are we giving boys the tools they need to contribute to a gender-equal world?

And how can we encourage them to identify damaging learned behaviours without harming their self-esteem?

We invite a panel of speakers, parents and psychologists to examine the relationships between parents and sons and ask if there’s a best way to bring up boys.
