A new study says that boys find it hard to open up to their dads. According to research by the Campaign Group Time to Change, about 50% of teenage boys do not talk to their fathers about stress, anxiety or depression, with most saying it is just too awkward because their fathers never talk ted about their own emotions. So how do we talk to our sons or how do make foster carers talk to the teenage boys, about the big issues?
Dr Mike Shaw, an adolescent psychiatrist, says the most important thing when it comes to any big subject is that father's initiate the discussion rather
than expecting their sons to. This short post has been repeated on our Facebook pages. It would be interesting to hear your views on this..
