Boys don't cry.
This is a phrase most boy children are raised by in most homes.
Eusebius McKaiser spoke to Child Protection and Development Specialist Luke Lamprecht, focusing on the experiences of male victims of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) and the restoration process that comes with this experience. He also looked at how boys are raised compared to girls.
Lamprecht says he is interested in how have we robbed our boy children of the ability to empathise.
He says that lack of empathy and the ability to see another person's mind and care about that person's mind is deeply troubling.
We are robbing our boy children of the ability to care quite frankly, and that's the great tragedy.— Luke Lamprecht, Child protection and development specialist
The thing about boys is that they are taught to act out they are not taught to talk out.— Luke Lamprecht, Child protection and development specialist
The internal life of boys emotionally is quite disabled.— Luke Lamprecht, Child protection and development specialist
