Raising Sons To Be Good Men (the joys and challenges)
Jan 05, 2021

If you’re a mom of a boy - you are well aware that there is no manual that can possibly prepare you for the unique joys and challenges of raising a son. 

And when they hit the tween and teen years there are a lot of changes - you may be finding your once sweet, affectionate son is beginning to pull away, they may talk less and not include you in how they’re doing. 

Or they may resist your advice. You may be finding it difficult to know how to connect with them and support them when they’re struggling. 

These are all topics that Kara Lewis and I discuss in this interview.

Kara has had a lot of experience as the lucky mom of four boys. 

Kara founded TheJoysofBoys.com in 2012 as a way to celebrate the little men in her life and has now grown into a resource that connects parents of boys with family-focused activities, parenting advice, and support to help them to connect and communicate with their sons to bring out the best in them. 

 Kara has published two journals, A Mother and Her Son: A Shared Journal Adventure and A Father and His Son: A Shared Journal Adventure.  These journals help parents connect with their sons in a fun way.
