Lower School Head, Colin Gleason, addresses “bullying” in today’s podcast. All across our fair land, schools feature “Say No to Bullying” posters in the same way that our public transit systems caution riders to “see something, say something.” Our children have grown up on high alert that there is a troubled class of individuals out there–BULLIES–that is out to get them. That may be true in some sense, but Mr. Gleason pushes back on the idea that every instance of aggression or lack of charity is “bullying.”
In this episode, our Lower School Head offers advice for parents and schools working through tough social situations.
Fr. Carter Griffin, Rector of the St. John Paul II Seminary in Washington, DC, shares his thoughts on vocation. Where are vocations coming from? What are the characteristics of homes that are conducive to our sons hearing the Lord’s call? How has his approach to formation changed with the arrival of young men raised in a digital age? Fr. Griffin discusses all of this and more in today’s podcast.
Our headmaster, Alvaro de Vicente, offers a lecture on how to build a solid relationship of trust with your son. This relationship matters because it is the context within which you will form your boy’s character.
