Helping Boys Who Don’t Play Sports Survive Bullies & Boyhood @ Teleseminar

 Dec 13 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

It’s not easy being a 51yjjqp38l-_sx331_bo1204203200_non-sporty boy in this country—home of the Marlboro Man and seven-figure pro athlete salaries, and where it’s assumed that being faster, stronger, louder, or mightier is always going to be better. Join us for a conversation with Janet Sasson Edgette, author of The Last Boys Picked. Together, we’ll discuss:

  • Ways to build boys’ self-esteem & self-confidence
  • Working with schools & gym teachers to facilitate inclusion
  • Resisting sports culture
  • Active alternatives to sports

Teleseminar participants can send questions to Janet in advance of the teleseminar, and will receive a digital recording of the seminar to keep.
