Why Boys need Male Mentors

9m | May 30, 2024

On this episode of the podcast, Dr. Richelle addresses the significance of male mentorship in the developmental journey of boys. Dr. Whittaker empathizes with mothers facing challenges with their sons’ behavior and academic struggles, and she provides reassurance and support. She emphasizes that male mentorship is essential because boys navigate the world differently and require male figures to model after and guide them through life's complexities. This episode includes practical advice on finding male mentors through organizations like churches, Boys and Girls Clubs, and scouting programs. Dr. Whittaker also shares insights from her husband and son on why male mentorship is pivotal. The episode wraps up by encouraging mothers to consider scheduling personalized consultations for tailored advice on their sons' development.
