Does your son suddenly stop what he’s doing and stare at the TV screen when a certain fast food burger commercial with the seductive women comes on the screen?
Sometimes this leaves us feeling hurt or angry. Some want to say men are pigs or perverts.
What if you found out that science has shown that men’s brains are physically different than women’s making it hard for us to understand the draw they have to certain visual stimulation? That the first initial reaction to the stimulation is an involuntary reflex?
Kathi talks with Shaunti Feldhahn about her book Through a Man’s Eyes: Helping Women Understand the Visual Nature of Men. While is the full responsibility of men to make the right choices, it is also time to let women in on what that truly entails, and how to be “empathetic without endorsing.” Through compassion and candor, women can finally learn what guys have long wished they knew, but had no idea how to explain—and then see the amazing difference it makes in their relationships.
Listen to this amazing episode as we work to understand our men in order to have a better marriage.
What Happens When Women See What Men See?
You already know that your husband, boyfriend, or son is wired differently from you, but do you know what that really means? It means, among other things, that he’s been given the gift of a unique visual wiring—and the challenges that come with it.
In Through a Man’s Eyes, Shaunti Feldhahn and Craig Gross team up to help open our eyes to something we are often blind to. They address questions like:
· “Why are guys so visual—and what does that mean, anyway?”
· “How do I help my son navigate this sex-crazed culture?”
· “How dare someone tell a woman to watch what she wears! Isn’t it a man’s responsibility not to look?”
· “If he’s tempted by visual images, is there something wrong with him? With me?”
· “My husband is an honorable guy, so why would he be tempted by porn?”
· “How can I talk to my husband or son about this? What can I do to support him?”
Through the compassion and candor in this book, we can learn what men have long wished we knew (but didn’t know how to explain)—and see the difference it makes when we do!
