In the late 1990s, Australian psychologist Steve Biddulph wrote the best-selling parenting guide "Raising Boys".
Geraldine did extensive interviews with Biddulph at the time. She says some women saw it as a negative commentary about women moving further into the professional workplace and and out of the home.
Now, Steve Biddulph has released a new article in the UK's Daily Telegraph newspaper. It notes that the phrase 'educate your sons' has become a mantra of the times, following testimonials from women and girls who feel unsafe.
He decided to go back and investigate how childhood shapes the man.
Also this episode, Geraldine reflects on the year she spent Easter in Israel. Eliza remembers the beauty of Jerusalem.
Please note: the next edition of LDC Bookclub will be released on Friday April 9. In March, Eliza, Madeleine Genner and Sarah Gerathy read "Mayflies" by Andrew O'Hagan.
