As fathers of boys, finding time to help with teenage boys as they transition to manhood is difficult, and often unstructured and reactive.
Plus, dealing with work, financial, family and relationship stress can negatively impact men’s health and father son relationships.
Trav’s Equipping Men workshops help establish the vital role of a father figure, caring mentor or experienced elder, to support a young boy in becoming a man.
Furthermore, rites of passage ceremonies and rituals help anchor stages of development and, simultaneously, improve youth wellbeing.
Building resilience in our young people, and ensuring youth wellbeing is maintained is vital.
As parents and mentors, we must help teenage kids through clear guidance, instruction and correction. How else will we instil resilience, character, discipline, integrity and other time-honoured values?
