On average, it will take you less than 3 minutes to read. 

I discussed in several earlier posts the purpose of a rites of passage program read the latest here. But what will your son gain from a rites of passage program is an equally valid question. 

As you consider creating a custom designed rites of passage program that imparts your family’s values and uniquely fits your son you may feel your son gains something different than what I list. That is perfectly fine. Since my approach to this topic has always been, “create your own, but here is a model that can help you get started”. 

3 things your son gains from a rites of passage program:

  1. He gains the understanding that boyish (immature) behavior must lessen while adult (mature) behavior increases
  2. He gains a deeper acknowledgement within himself that there are expectations he must live up to
  3. He gains the understanding from the caring adults in his circle that they recognize and embrace his transition and will treat him accordingly 

These 3 points are just a short peek into the myriad lessons learned by your son from participating in a rites of passage program. 

My free eBook, A Rites of Passage Framework, will be available as a free download on Saturday October 29, 2011. In A Rites of Passage Framework, I offer for your consideration 4 key components to include in the custom designed rites of passage program you create for your son. 

Peace,
