Boys are often known to be strong and tough, which is why it can come as a shock when they break down in tears. Boys Cry Too: Reasons Behind Boys Who Follow the Male Gender Stereotype discusses some of the reasons that boys may act up or cry in certain situations. It also talks about how men and boys are impacted by society’s expectations for them to follow male gender stereotypes- such as being independent, not showing emotion, and being tough.

The article is written for boys who act up or cry. It provides them with some advice on how to deal with their emotions and offers information about why they may be having certain feelings, such as anger, sadness, frustration, etc.

This post discusses the importance of teaching boys that it’s okay to show emotion and express themselves in all sorts of different ways- not just by being tough and strong all the time like society tells us we should. Boys need a safe space where they can feel accepted no matter what kind of person they are. They also deserve support from parents, teachers and coaches when dealing with situations that make them uncomfortable or upset so that they don’t have to do everything alone.

In order for this to be possible, boys need to feel like they have permission to say what’s going on for them. Boys want to express themselves in healthy ways that also build self-esteem and resilience.

The good news here is that there are several ways in which parents can help boys express themselves and work through emotions without being afraid of feeling embarrassed or vulnerable. The first step would simply be asking him how he feels about a situation, why, and what could make some better — not demanding an answer or pushing him into talking more than he wants to. If your son doesn’t know how to answer, you can offer a few examples of “feeling” words (mad, sad) and give him some time.

In other cases boys may not want to speak up because they’re worried about what the consequences will be for talking openly,” says Dr Amanda Dettmer who is the head psychologist at Outward Bound USA. “They might think that people are going to laugh or tease them if their feelings get hurt.”

You could also earmark one day per week as dedicated “feelings” days where kids have permission to express themselves in whatever way feels right — whether it’s through art, music, dance or drama. Or find out if he would like an adult close by when he has to talk.

You can also ask your child how he would like you to support him when you see that his emotions are getting the better of him, for example by asking questions or giving space.”

Very good tips! I will try this out with my boys and see if it helps them feel more comfortable opening up about their feelings.

This is a great article on why boys might not want to share their feelings openly in school settings as much as girls do. If we continue working on ways to make boys know they’re okay just the way they are then hopefully we’ll get past this gender stereotype gap someday soon! Great work here!”

Coping with boys who follow the male gender stereotype can be difficult, but there are many reasons behind why boys do this. This post will explore some of those reasons and offer advice on how to deal with them appropriately.

Boys may not cry out of fear that their masculinity is being threatened by crying or it’s just a sign of weakness in general (even though we know now that expressing emotions doesn’t make one more feminine).

Boys might associate crying as an act for girls, even if they’re hurt. Some boys also feel like crying would mean they have failed at life because society expects men to set an example for others so “real” men don’t show any emotion other than anger.
