Less screen time, more green time

“Stop playing that game!”“Put your phone down!”“Get off the computer!” These are regular comments in many homes, including mine and those of our friends. However, through a mix of good luck and perhaps good management I haven’t had to deal with extreme online use or even anything approaching gaming addiction. I say good luck because I certainly use ...

What are you most looking forward to in 2019?. I am most looking forward to seeing all of the new creative and unique design ideas that students develop over the year. Can you describe one of your favourite teaching moments at Trinity?. One of my favourite moments was coaching the 10B soccer team and winning the final soccer game of the season in the dying minutes of the game against Aquinas College....

Instilling organisational skills

Instilling organisational skills

  1. Posted on May 29, 2019

Before we look at some practical tips for wrangling our boys into being organised human beings, it’s worth being reminded of an old aphorism: “We love our boys and raise our girls.” Michelle Obama restated this in a 2017 interview, and further observed: “We raise (girls) to be strong, and sometimes we take care not to hurt men — and I think we pay for that a little bit....

Adolescent boys and risk-taking behaviour

Adolescent boys and risk-taking behaviour

  1. Posted on April 3, 2019

Adolescent boys and risk-taking behaviour go together like mothers and sleepless nights, am I right? I always thought my son was too intelligent, too well-adjusted and sufficiently able to stand back from peer pressure to engage in risky behaviour. That was until last year when he had settled into his early teens. His father and I noticed him talking about, then flirting with, some crazy-brave behaviour in which some of his peers were engaging....

Finding a better balance

Finding a better balance

  1. Posted on March 7, 2019

Talking about feminism. A chat with my adolescent son a couple of weeks ago led me down a dark highway of the internet. He told me he was watching, on the recommendation of some mates, some anti-feminist content, and worst of all, he was finding it funny! Knowing that my son was probably trying to get a reaction from me, I took a deep breath and asked him what he understood about feminists and what his problem was with them....

Tips to keep your son reading

Tips to keep your son reading

  1. Posted on October 25, 2018

I never thought I would have a teenage son who was reluctant to read books. We’d spent countless hours lying together on his bed reading Spot, Thomas the Tank Engine and later the Treehouse series and Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events. He loved going each year to listen to Andy Griffiths speak at Writers Festival events and would line up in long queues on hot February days to have the author sign his Treehouse books....
