31. Let’s Talk About Our Boys. Are You Raising A Disrupter?

In this episode, Liza brings in boy experts Janet Allison and Jennifer L.W. Fink, co-hosts of ON BOYS podcast. Together, they discuss the boys who just do not fit the mold and more than that, they disrupt their environment. It’s often the case that our disrupters can cause parents frustration, exhaustion and even anger, but there is so much beneath their disrupting behaviors. Many of our boys have ADHD, anxiety, sensory processing issues and/or learning differences. This episode discusses their many strengths and the areas we really need to stay focused on including connection with our boys and supporting their interests and passions. Learn useful ways to navigate conversations, allow their spirit to flourish, build confidence, and just be brave when we wrestle with big questions, like homeschooling. This one is for the boys.
