If you’ve paid attention to the media lately, you’ve heard that American boys are in crisis – lagging 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 Wednesday when we look at the status of boys from both sides, and see what challenges are involved in raising boys today. Because this is a show from our archives, we won’t be taking calls this hour.
