–Sorry folks this event has now sold out, and a waiting list is open on the ticketing page and we are finalising details for a second session at a different venue on Friday 15th March. Please note we do not support people on-selling tickets on our Facebook page, due to scammers targeting event pages.–
Mothers of sons are worried about raising their boys in a world where negative images of masculinity are front and centre of our media, almost every day. Also, statistically our boys are still struggling in many ways. Even though we live in a time where we recognise nothing in gender is fixed, it remains a fact that the influence of a mother on her son is massive.
In this seminar, one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors Maggie Dent explores the power of mothering our precious boys in a warm, firm, fair and fun way from birth to adulthood. A mother of four sons herself, Maggie draws on research and personal experience – and over four decades work as a teacher, counsellor and now author and speaker – to help build understanding, empathy and compassion for our boys.
Although aimed primarily at mums of sons and other mother figures, the seminar will be useful and insightful for dads and other father figures, to help build a better understanding of the importance of cooperative intimate relationships. In her lighthearted way, Maggie offers insights and practical tips and suggestions for ensuring your son will grow up to become a respectful, responsible and loving good man.
