Being a prepubescent teenage boy is tough. I know, I was one. Hair is showing up in weird places, your voice sounds weird, and instead of playing in the dirt with your friend Jenny, you just want to get dirty with your friend Jenny. While dealing with physical and emotional changes is confusing for the boy, it can be equally confusing for his family as well. Fortunately, Deaconess Hospital is offering a seminar that can help everyone deal with this chapter of life.

How to Raise a Good Man on Tuesday, March 12th is the first in the Men's Health Series presented by Deaconess Hospital and 106-1 KISS-FM. During the seminar, designed by physicians Dr. Capri Weyer and Dr. Stacy Blankenbuehler for parents and their sons (ages 10-13), attendants will learn about what issues your pre-teen will face as they grow including puberty, and emotional stressors, as well as how to deal with anger and other strong feelings, and survival tips for everyone in the family.

This seminar is free to attend and open to boys between the ages of 10-13 and their parents. It will take place at Johnson Hall inside the Health Science Building on Deaconess' Downtown campus with dinner and registration at 5pm and the lecture beginning at 6pm. A pair of Colts tickets will also be given away during the event.

Registration can be done now by calling 812-450-7000, or online through the Deaconess website.
