Influences, Role Models, Lonely Seasons. Helping our Sons Navigate Well
Guiding our sons intentionally in the things that will shape who they become.
This is the sixth part of the 2022 monthly feature on the podcast, covering the “12 Things Your Son Needs Most from You” from my book, Boy Mom. Today I am sharing some snippets from Chapter 7 – Forces at Work: Influences and Role Models. This is an incredibly important topic that I urge parents to pay close attention to!
The influences in your child’s life will mold and shape them into who they grow up to become. In this week’s episode, we talk about the greatest influence on kids – their own parents(!!) as well as sibling and peer influences, role models, and more. I also share about the lonely seasons my sons went through when they made some good, hard choices to pull away from kids who were not good influences on them. I hope this episode is a big encouragement to you!
