Raising Boys - facilitated screening, June 20
June in Australia is the month to celebrate and applaud our wonderful Australian men – the husbands, fathers, dads, brothers, uncles, friends, mentors and colleagues who work hard to support their families, children and mates, and do a fantastic job.
International Men’s Health Week (12-18 June) provides a platform to focus on the health needs of men and to encourage a healthier lifestyle, including undertaking regular physical activity and eating nutritious food.
It is also important opportunity to focus on wellbeing and raising our children. In particular raising boys; in this contemporary world, it is not always easy.
We are delighted to host a facilitated screening of Steve Biddulph’s talk based on his best-seller Raising Boys. Brian Mier from Eagle Health Resources with host the event.
‘Raising sons to be kind, caring, confident and purposeful is getting easier. Here we share new ideas for people who loved the ideas in the book...’
