How to create a boy tribe

In this “Maggie Moment” from one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors and educators Maggie Dent discusses why our boys really need a ‘tribe’ once they start entering puberty. Maggie encourages parents to look at who the special people in their boys’ lives are – not just now, but who mattered to them when they were little. She talks about creating safe spaces for your sons and their friends in real life not just online. Boys need mentoring and very specific guidance to cross that bridge to manhood. Who’s in your tribe?

Maggie writes extensively about helping boys cross the bridge to manhood in her 2020 book, “From Boys to Men” out now in all good bookstores, as an ebook, audiobook and print edition and in our shop.
