Raising Emotionally Strong Boys (with David Thomas)

Today’s episode is for the boymoms. But girlmoms, I think you’ll really like it too. We’re talking about what it means to be an emotionally healthy man. If you’re raising boys, you’re going to want to have a deeper understanding of this. If you’re raising girls, you’ll want them to.

If you’re new to the podcast, you might not have heard David Thomas before, but if you’re a long-time listener, you will recognize him for sure. David is an expert on all things boy. In fact, he is a counselor to boys in the Nashville area, which makes him uniquely gifted to shed light on emotional struggles like anger, anxiety, and depression in boys. His new book, Raising Emotionally Strong Boys, just released a few months ago.

In this episode, David and I talk about:

  • The definition of an emotionally healthy male.
  • The three R’s of emotional regulation, and how to make them work for and with your son.
  • Balancing a traditional view of manhood with one that is more emotionally strong.
  • The difference between depression and anxiety in girls vs. boys. What to look for.
  • How we can be praying for our boys to be emotionally strong.
