Since outbursts and sullenness are common in boys, it's easy to assume that's just how boys are and they will eventually grow out of it. But what if we understood the reasons behind their meltdowns or aloofness? What if there were tools that could help boys build an emotionally strong foundation?

In this episode, Josh and Christi talk with their dear friend, David Thomas, LMSW, author, and Director of Family Counseling at Daystar Counseling in Nashville, TN, about his new book Raising Emotionally Strong Boys.

Here are some highlights:

- Practical ways to help your son be resourceful, aware, resilient, and empathetic
- How we can help our boys problem solve in the midst of their self-pity
- Strategies to help boys discover a middle ground between shame and blame
- How to narrate your own navigation strategies in real time with your kids
