Mums Raising Teenage Boys

As the primary female role model in a boy’s life, mothers play an important role in the development of their son’s identity including their ability to be nurturing. For teenage boys in particular, this on-going relationship with their mothers has long term implications. This in turn affects how they relate to others, particularly to girls and women.
This workshop will discuss:
• the importance of the mother-son relationship
• what boys need from their mums
• practical ways to improve and maintain a positive and rewarding relationship,which could include:
o mothers need to have some knowledge of their son’s world
o attachment and boundaries and the consequences
o importance of negotiation and its necessary skills
o allowing decision making
o risk taking and sexuality, mutual respect
o steps taken to hand over the control to teenagers as they demonstrate responsibility and
appropriate self-management skills
o need for appropriate knowledge of modern technology in order to make reasonable decisions.
