New Study Reveals That Boys Are The Ones Who Need More Emotional Support

11How can you fix this?

We need to stop treating boys as if they are different from girls. If you teach your child that they are strong than a different gender then they will grow up and try to assert their dominance of the opposite genders for the rest of their lives. This is a very wrong mindset to have especially in the violence-filled world like today.

12Encourage expression

This is something that every parent with a boy should adopt. Encourage your child to express themselves. This will teach them to always tell their problems to their parents and not hide anything. This will also give them the much-needed freedom of expression that is too often taken away from them.

13Listen to the boy

This is something that parents especially fathers do not do. They do not listen to their boys’ stories. Girls are encouraged to talk about everything that goes on in their lives as a means to know what they are up to and keep them safe so why not do the same for your male child. Parents should try to keep the emotional connection the same for both children.

14Let him read

Another thing boys are not allowed to do even though parents complain about it is reading. Boys are sent out to play and sports and outdoor activities are often the things that they are most interested in but parents should encourage them to read. This will help them learn faster and help their minds develop better.

15Talk to them

The biggest thing that most parents do not do with their boys is talking to them. They just let the boys go out to play and discover the world for themselves and by themselves. This is great as with today’s technology children can learn a great deal but the Internet cannot replace the human connection that is formed during a conversation.
