    When I discovered that I was going to be the father of not just one boy, but two I started to scratch around at the boys in our culture books that seem to have become a popular genre in the last ten years I knew going into that it wasn t just my parenting that I was curious about but if these lens would give me insight into my own childhood and ideas about what composes a good man.The basic argument of the book is that our culture teaches boys to ignore their emotional lives and toughen u When I discovered that I was going to be the father of not just one boy, but two I started to scratch around at the boys in our culture books that seem to have become a popular genre in the last ten years I knew going into that it wasn t just my parenting that I was curious about but if these lens would give me insight into my own childhood and ideas about what composes a good man.The basic argument of the book is that our culture teaches boys to ignore their emotional lives and toughen up too early so that they are so ignorant of their own feelings that they end up repressing them and acting out in other ways like violence and drug alcohol abuse That certainly rings true to my observations What follows is their own experience with boys as school shrinks that prove these points While there s nothing earth shattering here, I did appreciate the forum to consider these things and appreciated that it s not so muc...

    Filled with case studies of troubled boys, this book really had me questioning how boys grow up to be anything but emotion suppressing violent drug alcohol abusers The author psychologists blame a culture of cruelty and parents caregivers that toughen up boys at a young age, teaching them to ignore their emotions Heavy handed in laying out the boy problem, they do little to offer solutions to combat this emotional illiteracy Read it for the frank discussion of adolescent boys sexuality an Filled with case studies...
