What is the boy crisis?


It's a crisis of education. For the first time in American history, our s ons will have less education than their dads.


It's a crisis of mental health. As boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women.


It's a crisis of sexuality. Sex is a minefield for our sons. They're bombarded with mixed messages, afraid of being either too sensitive or not sensitive enough.


It's a crisis of fathering. Boys with less-involved fathers are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison.


It's a crisis of purpose. Boys' old senses of purposes, being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner, are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a purpose void, feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification. Compounding this issue are addicting video games that lead to distraction and ADHD.


So, what is The Boy Crisis? A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers, and policy makers can do to renew our sons' sense of purpose to help them become men, fathers, and leaders worthy of our respect.
