The Heart of a Boy

The Heart of a Boy

Our gust, Kate T. Parker seeks to positively redefine masculinity at a moment when the country is grappling with how to raise boys to become good people.

For generations, boys have been taught to be stoic and unemotional—and traits that do not fit in that box should be suppressed. It’s more important than ever to redefine our expectations of them—and nurture all the attributes that make them who they are: the sensitive and the strong, the creative and the silly, the kind and the curious.

THE HEART OF A BOY: Celebrating the Strength and Spirit of Boyhood by Kate T. Parker seeks to positively redefine masculinity at a moment when the country is grappling with how to raise boys to become good people. Parker’s 2017 blockbuster bestseller Strong Is the New Pretty struck a chord throughout the nation and beyond.

Now, in this stunning new collection, Parker turns her lens to boys. Because when given permission to be themselves, boys will not only grow up to be the truest version of themselves but will grow up to be men who will support and respect girls and women.

We were lucky enough to have Kate join us again for this edition of The Fit Mess.
