how to raise emotionally healthy boys???
I have 2 boys ages 3 and 7. I would like to have advice on how to help raise them to be eomtionally aware and to express their emotions in healthy ways....how to encourage them to do this....also ...my 7 yr. old doesnt know how to identify and express this emotions well and I can see this in him ...how can I help him identify them and to let the boys know it is ok to feel and express it. There is so much stigma about men being weak or sissy if they feel and express it and I dont want that for them it is so much healthier to just be human ...web sites would help me as well. thanks

Hope this will help! I will also read through them, I have a son too, and I also want him to express himself about his feelings.
At least to me :)

i won't be able to communicate specifics approximately your concern, sorry. i will inform you this, we observed a newborn that doesn't communicate whilst she have been given mad. From day one, i could take a seat next to her and carry her hand. She could bypass someplace else, i could persist with and tell her that i'm affected person and it rather is considerable I now what she is feeling. Now she is seven, whilst she is disappointed she will communicate approximately it with the relatives and without lot of prompting. i realize it rather is in simple terms too trouble-free, yet once you spend the time and not stress them they are going to communicate. in simple terms stay with them and don't do the different activities until they communicate. don't be mad, or satisfied, in simple terms take a seat next to them. stable good fortune to you, parenting isn't basic.

The best way is to talk to them. Ask questions. Encourage them to be open and honest. Don't criticize them. Show them that you love them. Honesty is the best medicing for emotionally healthy children.

i don't know any websites offhand, but i do know a GREEAT book on how to deal with emotions. its called SOS for emotions. i think if you handle your emotions well, your children will. they learn behavior from you.
