Our thanks to Andrew for this:
The British Psychological Society’s Martin Seager was on BBC Radio 4 yesterday (Wednesday, 22 September). Of interest to your supporters? And the BPS’s Male Psychology Section is worthy of promotion.
15:04 -19: 54 Consultant clinical psychologist Martin Seager from the British Psychological Society (BPS) Male Psychology Section (MPS) here discusses toxic masculinity, positive masculinity, and accepting boys as boys.
Interesting that the mother of two boys is so worried about her ability to bring up her two boys. IMHO having successfully brought up my son all you need is time, patience, objectivity, example, and a willingness to negotiate the system from a positive masculinity point of view.
How should I prepare my son for adolesence [sic]?
Bringing Up Britain
‘The relationship between the sexes is high on the agenda thanks to the revelations of school harassment on Everyone’s Invited, children’s increasing exposure to porn and hashtags like #NotAllMen. But how are parents navigating this complex area? In this four part series of Bringing Up Britain, Anjula Mutanda sets out to find answers. She explores whether stereotypes matter, how to prepare boys for adolescence, the pros and cons of single sex education and how to parent children through the complexities of online harassment and abuse.
In this episode, Anjula speaks to Lavinia, a mother of two boys aged 5 and 10 who wants to know how to prepare her older son for the world he’s entering, while protecting him from life’s harsh realities. While there has rightly been a huge focus on girls’ wellbeing in recent years, [J4MB emphasis: BBC pro-female bias, much?] are boys being left behind, or even discriminated against? Anjula brings together a series of experts from psychologists, to teachers and child development experts to explore just what boys on the cusp of adolescence are facing today.’
