Teach Your Kids “Me Last” in the Age of “Me First”

Have you ever played rock-paper-scissors to see who gets to go last—or to see who gets to sit in the backseat?

My college roommate would yell “backseat!” every time the two of us rode with another diver. He also had the unique custom of tipping the ice cream server for his milkshake at Baskin Robbins. He explained, “Think about it…you tip the bartender, and all they do is knock the top off of a bottle. The person making your milkshake spends so much more time with your order.” He was a strong, yet empathetic leader in college and continues to be one now. I think that growing up in a household of four kids taught him that life was about much more than him—and these lessons have had a great deal to do with his success.

Boys Need Male Mentors

To make men, build up boys. One of the ways PDS builds up boys is by giving them guidance on the journey to manhood. In 5th and 6th grades, boys meet regularly with male mentors, but even in Early Chilldhood, our boys are greeted every day by one of their future mentors as they arrive on campus.

Boys Need to Wiggle and Move

Boys move. A lot. They're loud and messy and have trouble sitting still. And that's completely okay. We're experts at channeling that energy.
