Raising Boys
If you’ve paid attention to the media lately, you’ve heard that American boys are in crisis – laggingRaising Boys behind educationally, and disconnected from their masculinity. Others argue that these problems are no more a part of boys’ lives than snakes, snails and puppy dog tails – and that maybe it’s pressure to be stereotypically manly that exacerbates the difficulties they do experience. Join us this Friday when we look at the status of boys from both sides, and see what challenges are involved in raising boys today.

Thanks you so much for this informative and affirming show. The topic is one that I think is often overlooked in the public school system. As a parent of a wild and crazy but wonderful 9 year old, I am very pleased to have my feelings and experience raising my son, affirmed by this conversation!
Thank you to the guests, who offered great insight and expertise. Much thanks to Julie Kredens and staff, for leading this excellent discussion. I needed to hear this information, so that I better understand my boy and improve my parenting!
