Fathers and the Freedom to be Authentic Men

Zach's research recently got some attention from the Psychology of Men and Masculinity division of the American Psychological Association. As it turns out, dads with strict expectations about their sons' expressions of masculinity can have some unwanted consequences. Check out Zach's article about the study.


*Why: Men are taught a lot about what it means to be a man. Psychological research provides a bunch of evidence for what aspects of “masculinity” can be harmful and helpful. Here we aim to shed light on some of these findings and provide ways for men to become better men (without being intellectual pricks about it).
