Society places expectations on boys to be invulnerable, demonstrate strength, be self-sufficient, and, when faced with adversity, control their emotions and solve their problems alone.

Varying from these norms, for example, by seeking help, can be regarded as a form of weakness or "failing to be a 'real man."

A Global Boys Summit scheduled to take place in Casablanca, Morocco, seeks to address these expectations from the boy child and tell them it is okay to show emotions, among others.

Twenty-six-year-old Lloyd Bock will be representing Namibia at the Global Boys Summit from June 6–9.
