In this episode I sit and chat with author, educator, and founder of Boys Alive! and On Boys podcast Janet Allison. We get to talking about the ways that boys are different and how we can better understand, parent, and teach boys so that we can all thrive together.

Janet’s website:

Topics covered: Boy world, Man box, how the rules are different for boys, patriarchy, trauma, PTSD, circumcision, emotions, dynamics in schools, evolutionary differences between genders, free range kids, masculinity, sex education, porn, anger, connection, developmental differences between boys and girls, physical activiy, lack of physical touch and connection for boys and men, the problems with only having females teaching and disciplining boys until grade 5, how to effectively connect with and talk with boys about important topics.
