7 Essential Pillars Framework
If we are to raise confident, empathetic young men who can navigate life's challenges with courage and grace, they need the right foundation.
Bringing Up Boys Who Like Themselves will show you how to build the 7 Essential Pillars every boy needs to grow up liking himself.
The first one is Power Perspective. This is all about helping boys have a positive and resilient mindset, so they see challenges as opportunities to learn and grow, and approach life with confidence and optimism.
Then there's Strength of Character. This pillar is all about helping boys develop values like integrity, responsibility, and empathy. By doing this, they can build a strong sense of self and make good choices that benefit themselves and others.
Body Confidence is the pillar that helps boys have a healthy relationship with their bodies by appreciating their physical abilities and not just focusing on how they look. This can help them feel good about themselves beyond just their appearance.
Balance is also really important. It's all about helping boys manage their time, emotions, and energy effectively, so they can thrive.
Mastery and Independence is the fifth pillar which will build real and enduring confidence and self-belief. It's about helping boys learn essential life skills, become self-reliant and self-motivated and have the confidence to navigate the world and achieve their goals.
The sixth pillar is Strong Relationships. This is all about helping boys build positive relationships with family, friends, and peers, through meaningful connections and effective communication skills.
Finally, there's Authenticity. This pillar helps boys embrace their true selves, express their feelings, and pursue their passions without fear of judgment, while also respecting and valuing the uniqueness of themselves and others.
By focusing on these seven pillars, you can raise an emotionally intelligent, self-aware boy who is ready to succeed in today's complex world. It's all grounded in research and expert advice and can be implemented in any busy, messy or complex family.

What are "Worth Wreckers" and why should you care?
A "worth wrecker" is a damaging force that undermines young boys' sense of worth and confidence as they grow up.
Is your boy book the same as your girl book?
I don't have a traditional nuclear family. Will this book work for me and my family?

Is there an audio book?
