    What is masculinity?
    It's a question that's not easy to answer. But it's an important one for parents and educators of boys to tackle because the primary question for all boys, is "What is it to be a man?"
    In this episode, Jen & Janet discuss:

    * So-called "toxic masculinity" & the idea that boys are "broken"
    * Healthy masculinity
    * Changing expectations of boys and men
    * How to help boys wrestle with dueling definitions of masculinity
