Uncovering the Hero
Teen Boys In Australia - Information for Parents and Schools
Looking for a parent evening that is fun, engaging and informative?
Jane Higgins (CEO, The Odyssey Program) offers parents an insight into "boy world" and describes what is actually happening to our boys, why they engage in risk taking behaviours and what parents, carers and schools can do to support boys to become the best young men they can be.
Topics such as bullying, drugs and alcohol, general and mental health, crime, sexuality and body image, among other issues are discussed to assist parents to understand the pressures their sons are under. There are also suggestions, tools and tips for building healthier relationships with their boys.
Parents who attended an evening with us gave us the following feedback:
"Excellent. Well Done! Very informative and a must for all parents with teenagers."
"I loved the evening and thank you so much for the opportunity. I found it interesting, factual and feel blessed to have an amazing son. Please continue to spread your knowledge."
"Well presented, excellent, very professional and top marks! Interesting to find out what my son will be learning about (and what he will make of it all – All Good!) Thank you. Keep up the great work!"
"The parent night I found very informative but it was this afternoons trip to football training was very interesting with my son telling me about the great day he had [with the Odyssey Program] with the questions that came out of the box. We both had a belly laugh. Thanks again for visiting Blayney."
"I thought it was a fabulous evening. I am so glad I came and that my husband came too. I have a really close relationship with my sons and what you have said tonight has really cemented that I am on the right track. I feel that our boys are often over looked and undervalued. It is good to see someone who is so impassioned about the lives of our boys. Thank you so much."
