Behavior problems that parents experience with their tween and teen sons often happen because the parents have made no formal announcement that they expect their sons to become more responsible for their own well-being. This podcast highlights the need for rite of passage events for both teens and, separately, for their parents. This life-changing event acts as a signal that the role of the parents is going to change from provider, to educator - in the form of a mentor.
Because our culture does not promote rite of passages, Mark reveals how parents can initiate their son, and themselves
, into new roles in the family dynamic.
