1. Mental Health - it is an issue that we all need to address, but at the same time we need to find the balance between science and faith.
2. Gender Development - many groups lobby and advocate for gender fluidity, and they try to change what science has already established. The field of psychology is in constant debate with this, and it is good to try to shed light by what research also tells us.
3. Fathers and Sons Relationships - it is just in the recent years where fathers are given an utmost importance in the development of their sons. It is good for fathers to receive the education and formation they need to become better fathers, not just in theory but in practice as well.
