Navigating the teen years puts any guy to the test.
On Feb. 27, 2014, a smart lady will share some tips to help young men–and their parents–pass that test with flying colors.
Rosalind Wiseman, author of Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Your Son Cope with School Yard Power, Locker Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Realities of the Guy World, will speak at the Delbarton School in Morris Township.
The free talk starts at 7 pm in the Fine Arts Center and the public is welcome.
Rosalind’s best-seller, Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World—inspired the movie Mean Girls.
She is an advisor to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, and is a frequent guest on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Anderson Cooper 360 and other programs. In 2011, she spoke at the White House Summit on Bullying.
For her latest book, more than 200 boys shared their experiences with Rosalind, the mother of two boys.
“Great young men want to have rich emotional lives, but everywhere they turn, people are forcing them to live the stereotype of being a sexist, not-caring, emotionally disengaged, superficial guy,” Rosalind told an interviewer at The Atlantic.
“It’s amazing because we turn around and get angry with them when they go over the line, without acknowledging what we do as adults that stifles and silences and shuts boys up from being emotionally engaged people.”
