Boys want to discuss their feelings, but they generally express themselves while engaged in another activity, such as fishing or drawing, Dr. Pollack says. He calls this "action talk."

When you are talking to your son, you should:
  • Avoid teasing and shaming.
  • Share your own experiences.
  • Keep your statements brief.
  • Don't press for fast responses.
  • Really listen when your son finally decides to talk.
