Taking About Boys

By Bruce Felps

Lakewood Elementary School counselor Lydia Dickson offers a new program this school year for parents of boys enrolled in grades three through five at the school.

The program centers on preparing preadolescent boys for the ‘tween and teen years. She’ll use the book “Raising Our Sons” by Dr. Kathy Masarie — a compilation of articles, advice, ideas, and research from various leading parenting authors — as a guideline.

Meetings will include group discussions relating to supporting and raising boys to become well-rounded young adults.

An informational meeting takes place from 8:30-9 p.m., Sept. 14, at the school. Contact Dickson for more information.  

Dickson went through a training program on the book this summer during the American School Counselor Association Conference. The initial group will be limited to 12 parents for discussion and confidentiality purposes. A second group could be formed if enough parents indicate their interest.

Oh, and that headline?
