Many parents will attest to the fact that most boys are active, loud, rambunctious and
prone to rough play, but this should not affect how a parent acts towards their son. Be
careful not to pigeon-hole your son into sex specific behaviours or gender roles. The male
brain is distinctly different in its development. A boy’s physical maturity is often at odds
with his mental and brain development.Societal beliefs about how to raise boys can sometimes influence their adult carers.
Although we are not determined by our biology, it is a factor. It is important to support
boys in their natural tendencies and nurture their strengths and abilities. Teach them the
skills they need for their future and to develop a healthy identity. It is important for boys to
have a role model they can connect with and acknowledge who they are. One of the most
important determinants for a boy’s development is how secure they feel growing up.In this edition of SchoolTV, adult carers will gain a better understanding into some of the
more complex issues relating to raising boys. We hope you take time to reflect on the
information offered in this month’s edition, and we always welcome your feedback. If you
do have any concerns about the wellbeing of your child, please contact the school.
