This is a work read – a book used by some high profile schools as part of their pastoral care programs.
Helping boys to be confident, caring and aware young men who aren’t held back by fear or stereotypes is a big ask – but a worthy one. And Dr Tim Hawkes recommends some crucial conversations men really should be having. You can see in the image attached to this post, that it covers everything from love and intimacy, to financial literacy.
There are also some great activities throughout.
My only real concern here is how conservative and hetero-normative it is. All mentions of sex and romance are male-female – and we know that this approach is now going to alienate a significant proportion of the young population. Something a little more open about gender identity and sexuality would address a few more issues and be more modern and appealing to all.
