Boxers or Briefs
“BOXERS or BRIEFS”
Programs for Mothers of Adolescent Boys
While mothers of sons have some excellent books and written materials to use as resources, very few programs have existed that address some of our unique issues. For example, how do we tease out a real conversation from our boys to replace the monosyllabic grunts they use in place of talking to us? How do we help our unathletic sons feel good about themselves in a society where sports seem to be all consuming? And, perhaps most importantly, how do we handle that moment when they decide to trade their superhero decorated briefs for a more hip pair of plaid boxers?
Hadassah of Greater Baltimore put together Boxers or Briefs as a direct result of comments from mothers of boys who were looking for a program to offer the kind of support and camaraderie that mothers of girls have been enjoying for a number of years.
We know everyone has enjoyed the past presentations (see below) and invite you to become involved in planning future programs. Contact us for more information.
