  • Show your son that you love him whether he wins or loses.
  • Let your boys experience adversity.
  • Foster a relationship with a supportive, charismatic adult.
  • Let him take responsibility for his contribution to disappointing outcomes.
  • Be your own hero. Don't live vicariously through your son.
  • Never put up with intimidating or violent behaviour — even if it seems trivial.
  • Seek professional help if violence, mental illness of substance abuse are interfering with development.
