RINGLEADERS AND SIDEKICKS

<a href="/parenting-resources/boys/ringleaders-and-sidekicks">RINGLEADERS AND SIDEKICKS</a>

Book: Ringleaders and Sidekicks by Rosalind Wiseman. When Rosalind Wiseman published her bestseller 'Queen Bees and Wannabes' in 2001, it fundamentally changed the way that parents, educators and the media looked at the impact of girls' social dynamics and created a road map for girls to develop better relationships and higher self-esteem. Now Rosalind turns her attention to the tricky terrain of Boy World. Read full article

HPV Vaccination Program is Vital for Boys - a Cancer Story

<a href="/blogs/carolduncan/2013/02/15/hpv-vaccination-program-is-vital-for-boys-a-cancer-story">HPV Vaccination Program is Vital for Boys - a Cancer Story</a>

This year in Australia the cervical cancer vaccine is being given to young teenage boys in Australian high schools. The vaccine has been available for girls since the program began in 2007 and the aim has been to reduce the incidence of cervical cancer. Even if you are aware of the expansion of the HPV Vaccination Program to include boys, you may be wondering why. After all, boys don’t have a cervix, right? Read full article

How My Husband Raised a Good Man

<a href="/blogs/benisonoreilly/2012/06/19/how-my-husband-raised-a-good-man">How My Husband Raised a Good Man</a>

I’m just about to reveal myself as an appalling hypocrite. I think I can justify myself, however. You may recall that in my last outing for happychild I expressed my discomfiture at the idea of parents monitoring their kids’ Facebook accounts. (Not everyone agreed with me I have to add.) Yet only the other day I found myself reading my eldest son’s private correspondence without his knowledge. Read full article

Raising Boys vs Raising Girls

<a href="/blogs/yvettevignando/2012/03/21/raising-boys-vs-raising-girls">Raising Boys vs Raising Girls</a>

The segment on Mornings on Channel 9 raised the question - do we parent boys differently to the way we parent girls? Are there fundamental differences in boys and girls which mean it is easier to parent boys or girls? Do we need to be careful not to be influenced by our children's gender when we're communicating with them? Read full article

Motherhood, Boys and Testosterone - I'm Happy

<a href="/blogs/benisonoreilly/2011/10/13/motherhood-boys-and-testosterone-im-happy">Motherhood, Boys and Testosterone  - I&#039;m Happy</a>

It’s only recently that I’ve realised how content I am just having boys. They suit me. I happily call myself a feminist but when I was pregnant with my first child I surprised myself by wanting a son. I was smug when I had him too; the first boy on either side of the family after five girls. With my second son I had an unspoken preference for a girl, but he was such a beautiful baby, a competition winner no less. With my third ... Read full article

Are You Raising a Good Husband or Partner? I'm Trying.

<a href="/blogs/annette-reuss/2011/05/04/are-you-raising-a-good-husband-or-partner-im-trying">Are You Raising a Good Husband or Partner? I&#039;m Trying.</a>

When my boys were little, I lived in an environment where the men went to work during the day, and came home at night to sit on the couch while the women waited on them. True. This happened regardless of whether the women worked outside the house all day too. Needless to say it never bode well with me and I promised myself that my boys would never expect this of their wives. One of the most important things I could teach them is how to be a good husband.

From Toddler to Big Boy - the Great Testosterone Surge

<a href="/blogs/sarahliebetrau/2011/04/05/from-toddler-to-big-boy-the-great-testosterone-surge">From Toddler to Big Boy - the Great Testosterone Surge</a>

My son recently turned 5. I remember 12 months ago when he turned 4, thinking – that’s it, that’s the end of my baby. I couldn’t even classify him as a toddler any more – he was really a kid. His vocabulary was growing every day, and combined with his natural curiosity this meant he was asking increasingly complex questions about the world around him. He had begun to show some resilience and self-control as he matured. And then something peculiar happened. Read full article
