Radio Tonight at 9pm EST: Getting Honest about Boys

Boys face a lot of pressure in their young lives. Trying to navigate their social lives with young women is a trying, painful experience even when things go well. It is a time of lessons, most of them by trial and error.

They don’t get much help with this. Most of what they get from adults is some lectures on how you treat, or perhaps please, the opposite sex, but almost nothing on how to hold your own with them.

Simply put, we fail to teach boys what they really need to know about girls, and themselves, where it concerns relationships.

The show will air at 9pm EST.


On Monday, April 16, 2012, at 9:00 pm EST (yes, we are back to the regular time), join co-hosts Dr. Tara Palmatier and Paul Elam for an episode of  Man, Woman, Truth that focuses on the messages we give boys about their expectations in relationships with women, and how we set them up for misery in later life.

The call in number for the show is 310-388-9709.
