Parent Forum Tuesday, Dec 6th: Packaging Boyhood

Post date: Nov 17, 2011 2:23:25 PM

AOS 91 Schools in conjunction with a grant from the Stroud Fund of the Parish of St. Mary and St. Jude are pleased to announce the next Parent Forum. All forums are held at the Mt. Desert Elementary School. Come join us for free pizza and refreshments from 5:30-6 p.m., followed by the presentation from 6-7:30 p.m. Childcare will be provided!

Boys are fed a steady diet of media stereotypes about what it means to be a man, including messages about violence, risk-taking, sexual promiscuity and slacking off. This multimedia presentation offers an overview of this cultural landscape that boys confront everyday, and provides tools that can be used to help boys resist these troubling messages and negative images.
