    Heritages Awareness Month

    Native American
    November is Native American Heritage Month, or as it is commonly referred to, American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month.  The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.

    Parent Presentation: Boyhood for the 21st Century

    Join Severn School and CSEE, in partnership with AIMS, for a parent presentation at Severn School on Tuesday, November 1, in Price Auditorium from 7:00-9:00pm. 
    About the Presentation
    Despite popular alarms about boys falling behind, the truth behind the headlines is surprising and deeply reassuring. It is not boys themselves but an outdated model of boyhood that is the problem. Those in charge of boyhood – parents, educators, coaches – need to challenge masculine stereotypes and myths and create a new paradigm for raising a boy who is resilient, emotionally astute, and morally grounded.
    In a talk based upon his book, How to Raise a Boy, Dr. Michael Reichert reviews what we know and what we are missing when it comes to raising our sons. Building on his research and clinical experience, as well as from other research in boyhood studies and interpersonal neuroscience, his perspective affirms the goodness of boys and offers a roadmap for all those who care for them.
    Participants will:
    •    Understand the historic model of boyhood and its developmental costs. 
    •    Review key aspects of boys’ lives – their emotional development, the role of friendship and intimacy, their health and wellness, violence, digital citizenship – to grasp some of the threats to their development and the protective role parents and others can play. 
    •    Appreciate how a relational approach to parenting and mentoring boys can nurture their virtue and strengthen their resilience. 
    •    Consider three strategies for strengthening the parent/son bond, including a model for discipline. 

    Suggested Readings:
    •    How to Raise a Boy: The Power of Connection to Build Good Men, Michael C. Reichert (Tarcher Perigee, 2019) 
    •    Other resources, including podcasts, articles and interviews, posted on
