Maggie Dent returns to Perth with her popular seminar based on her bestselling 2018 book, “Mothering Our Boys”
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 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.
Time: Doors open at 9.15am for a 10am sharp start (noon finish) in The Dickinson Centre at Scotch College.
