Our sons are in severe distress. They are demonstrating that distress by sounding the alarm in every aspect of their lives, in the form of emotional, behavioral and learning struggles. Our social institutions-- the educational, mental health, medical, legal and social services-- are not meeting even a fraction of the needs of boys. Yet, these institutions are reacting to boys' distress signals with punishment, control, medication and pathologizing boys and natural boy behavior. These institutions, along with the media and social media form a powerful force, trying to coerce parents into colluding with this negative treatment of boys, causing only further harm and damage to boys.
Since the dawn of agriculture, when we moved away from the peaceful Hunter-Gatherer lifestyle, our species has been out of touch with nature's intent for the development of boys. My book will help parents, families, professionals and anyone who loves the boys in their lives to heal the emotional, behavioral and learning problems at their root, with nature's intent as our guide. Parents will be able to reconnect with their sons, heal their relationship and help their sons rediscover their joy and love for learning.
