Joanna Schroeder, Executive Editor, The Good Men Project and Marie Roker-Jones, Raising Great Men and Associate Editor, The Good Men Project had the honor of chatting with Rosalind Wiseman, author of a new book about raising boys: Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Your Son Cope with School Yard Power, Locker Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Realities of Guy World.
Rosalind Wiseman is the bestselling author of Queen Bees and Wannabes and as a mom of two boys recognized the need to write a book that addresses the inner life of boys.
The conversation centered on the emotional well-being of boys and offered insight into what boys need from their parents. Ms. Wiseman discussed the challenges of the “Act Like a Man” box, how parents can handle aggressive coaches, how moms can effectively communicate with their sons.
Teen boys can also download a free ebook called The Guide written by Rosalind Wiseman with contribution from high school boys around the country.
