For Fathers and Sons, 9 - 10 Years Old
A Great Place for Fathers and Sons to Connect
Boys 2 Men is an introductory puberty education class at The Rites of Passage, for boys and dads (or moms if preferred). The focus of this class is communication and connection while strengthening the father-son bond through shared experiences.
The interactive activities in Boys 2 Men make talking about puberty positive, and even FUN, which helps parents and children learn that these conversations don't have to be awkward, as most people think they will be. Puberty education and preparation classes, such as Boys 2 Men, also help to increase self esteem by preparing tweens for the years surrounding puberty. It is truly a gift to be informed, educated, and prepared for these changes before they happen. Dads and sons work together towards a common goal of opening the lines of communication while learning about essential topics such as:
- Age appropriate body changes
- Self confidence
- Body positivity
- Self care
- Combatting negativity
- Consent and body safety (safe vs. unsafe touch)
- Good pictures/Bad pictures
- All of these changes are normal and expected
- All classes are fact based
It's never too young to start these conversations.

"I thought the class tonight was fantastic! Everything about it was great: the ice breaker game at the beginning, getting the boys engaged by reading out loud and volunteering for brief demonstrations, the short dialogues we had after key topics, etc. It was all fantastic! Without any prompting, after class, my son said he really liked it and asked when we get to go back for the next class. During some brief chats with a couple other fathers after the class, they seemed to be just as happy with it as we were." ~ father of 10 year old boy
"This class was absolutely wonderful. It was very informative and very interactive with the boys. I even learned some really important information. I really enjoyed the interaction between dads and sons. The questions and participant involvement kept the class exciting and energetic. Thanks for breaking down such a challenging topic. On so many levels, it has brought up good questions and conversations. Every child should learn and take this. I was quite nervous coming into the class but it was so good and well presented. Thank you!"
I love the dialogue that follows your classes. It makes it so much easier to talk about everything!

Our class was awesome! It made me feel really comfortable to know what to expect with puberty. I’m not scared about it anymore.

We had pretty open communication before, but this has really helped us discuss more topics openly.
