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
