    Our podcast “resident therapist,” David Thomas, is back with us, live from Daystar Counseling. He talks with us about what our sons need across the developmental lifespan.
    In this episode, David breaks down what our boys need in the following age groups:
    Ages 2-4: The Explorer
    Ages 5-8: The Lover
    Ages 9-12: The Individual
    Ages 13-17: The Wanderer
    Ages 18-22: The Warrior
    Some of the best nuggets of this interview include:

    * The biggest hurdle of boys today across the developmental lifespan
    * Ways that boys self-medicate their pain and why
    * Why helping boys problem solve and use critical thinking is crucial to their development
    * The importance of placing your hand on your son’s shoulder and addressing him by name
    * Why boys need less words, not more
    * Helping our boys navigate video gaming in a healthy way
