Helping Our Boys to Flourish
11am, Saturday 26th January
Recent research shows that boys under perform in comparison to girls in school and grow up to report lower life satisfaction than women. We also know that suicide is the biggest killer of men under 40 in the UK. Reports of "toxic masculinity" can add shame and pressure to our growing men. In the era of #metoo, we need to foster a win-win for gender equality by nurturing emotionally literate boys and enabling them to flourish. In this discussion, coach-facilitator Emma Dempsey and award-winning writer Nick Thorpe - both parents of sons - bring together the latest research and advice for raising attainment and channelling the best energies of boys. This workshop is suitable for parents & carers as well as those professionally interested in education, gender equality and wellbeing.
Entry to this event is on a first come, first serve basis. Please come early to avoid disappointment.
