My guest today is Todd Adams. 


Todd and Casey talk about raising young, straight, cis-gendered, white men and how to balance teaching them about the responsibility that comes with their privilege without over-burdening them.  They discuss what it means to “be a man” and how to nurture a young man’s emotional intelligence & the importance of modeling.  Todd shares how important it is for parents to be self-aware, curious, and willing to learn.  He gives strategies for connecting with and calling-in teenagers and why to connect when they’re ready.  Casey and Todd remind us that there’s not a perfect script, but an ongoing conversation, when it comes to tough topics like consent, substance use, & being advocates.  Todd wraps up by talking about what healthy masculinity and “mature masculinity” look like to him.
