Connecting with teen boys

In this conversation, US-based family therapist and parenting author Susan Stiffelman speaks with Maggie in the wake of the release of her 2020 book From Boys to Men for her podcast, Parenting Without Power Struggles. They talk about offering support and maintaining strong connection with boys—even as they move into a stage where it seems they want nothing to do with us.
