Free parent education seminar presented by Mark Le Messurier for boys aged 10-15years and their Dad's together.
Today most of us know about the ‘man box’. It represents the old attitudes around ‘what makes a man’. It shows how these old attitudes box us in, limit us to be a label, and prevent us becoming our best selves. Once boys were taught that to be a ‘real bloke you should be tough, be risky, suck it up and be gutsy—show no pain, no fear, give no mercy and show no emotions, except for…. anger because that looks strong! Boys were told they are strong and girls are weak, that men are superior and women are inferior. And, so much more that cripples the way men share feelings, form friendships and do relationships. Only recently have we said that we want you to express your opinions, ideals, doubts, fears, insecurities and sexuality. We want ‘real young men’ to turn into real older men who follow their true interests, even if those interests don’t stack up to traditional masculine values.
