It’s not easy being a boy. Social expectations of masculinity are everywhere - don’t cry, be strong, keep your emotions in check! I’ll share the five conversations we should be having with our sons, nephews, godsons and male friends.

Here are the highlights:

(1:03) Birth-rate for boys is higher than girls

(3:00) Challenge male stereotypes

(6:55) Mental health is as important as physical health 

(13:15) Be conscious of confidence comparisons

(18:30) Risk-taking

(22:18) Communication is crucial
