From Boys to Men (Wellington NZ)

August 26, 2023, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


In this seminar, parenting author and educator and ‘boy champion’ Maggie Dent shares insights, tips and common-sense wisdom from her 2020 book, From Boys to Men: Guiding our teen boys to grow into happy, healthy men. Adolescence is a confusing time for teens and their parents and carers — and our boys have some particular challenges that we need to understand if we are to guide them safely to healthy manhood.

Maggie explores in a compassionate, practical way how we can:

  • communicate effectively with our boys
  • teach your lad to cope with loss and failure, and recover well
  • help them foster healthy friendships and intimate relationships
  • the importance of the line in the sand
  • navigating middle school and high school
  • ‘unstick’ an unmotivated son.

This seminar will empower and enlighten anyone who lives or works with boys 12-25 to better understand them and support them to thrive as they progress through this often-challenging stage of development, so they can grow into be happy, healthy men.

Tickets: $30NZD

Time: 10am-12pm (doors open at 9.15am)
