I Just Saw....

I was just watching the Rachael Ray show and she had Shaq as a guest star.  He was mentioning that he's a part of a program that Dove has for young men.  I thought that was neat since I also have a son.  I forgot what they call the program but it was helping them to be comfortable in their own skin.  Shaq's such a great guy!!

Awesome!! We always hear so much about "strong girls" and making our daughters be "comfortable in their own skin" but it seems that the boys are many times forgotten.

I agree! I think it's great that they are doing something like that for boys. :)

Honestly I don't like Rachel Ray but I love what she stands for so I buy her products.

I think we expect boys to be more confident on their own, and that is not always true. Good for Shaq.

 I agree with this and to be honest I have misunderstood the psych of the boy. My son has been singled out for bullying since he was 2 years old...he is almost 3 and has never stood up for himself. He is so passive without an angry violent bone in his body....I fear for him in school...I wish I knew how to boost his confidence too.

I always thought boys could handle that sort of thing better than girls, but to be honest....I think sometimes it gets worse for boys. Hope that doesnt offend anyone.
