The topic of Junior High Boys can be very interesting. That's where this episode begins - with our guest, Andrew Dahilig who has worked with middle school boys for over twelve years.
He gives his boys FOUR CHALLENGES every week in four main life areas. We will learn about these challenges in episode 150 of the Practically Speaking MOM Podcast.
Our guest also shares with us an event he created for middle school boys that combines these life challenges - it was a physical obstacle course combined with interactive personal growth activities for the boys. It's an event that you could duplicate when coupled with the material that he provided free to our listeners. You will receive this in this weeks' ministry email from the Practically Speaking MOM Podcast if you are a part of my email list. Otherwise, go to my website, www.PracticallySpeakingMOM.com, click on RESOURCES, and look for "Boys Journal Prompts Activity from Episode 150 and Guest Andrew Dahilig."
Then this episode ventures into some further topics about boys - including common differences in how girls and boys learn and how that may be impacting your son's self-perception regarding academics which would then in turn be impacting his school performance.
There's lots to ponder and pursue from listening to this week's episode, "Four Life Challenges Boys Need, Plus Reaching Middle School Boys with Guest Andrew Dahilig" from our RAISING SONS Series.
