The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys are Struggling and What Parents, Therapists and Educators Can Do About It
In developed nations worldwide, boys are falling behind girls in every academic subject, as well as in mental health, physical health, and in preparation for productive careers. Why is this happening, and what can we do about it? In this workshop, Warren Farrell and John Gray, co-authors of The Boy Crisis, and Ashanti Branch, founder of Ever Forward and practitioner-advocate for inner city boys, will introduce participants to the evidence, causes, and solutions to the boy crisis.
Our inability to handle personal criticism from loved ones is a common Achilles’ heel. The more deeply we love, the more fragile we feel. Soon, couples feel they are walking on eggshells, unable to express themselves honestly, and their love fades. Raising children and money magnify the problems even as they become the reason couples stay together. The result? Couples often remain legally married but psychologically divorced — in a minimum-security-prison marriage.
