    Story
    (439)

    Something scary is happening to boys today. From kindergarten to college, they are less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere 20 years ago. Fully one-third of men ages 22 to 34 are still living at home with their parents, about a 100 percent increase in the past 20 years. Boys nationwide are increasingly dropping out of school; fewer are going to college. Family physician and research psychologist Dr. Leonard Sax presents practical solutions.

    Kirt says: "Startling, well-researched view..."
    "Well this made me sit up and pay attention!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Boys Adrift again? Why?

    This is a book I will listen to again and I will be referring to all my friends and relatives with boys. It was a great opportunity to stop and reflect on how important masculinity and manhood is, something as a woman and mother I am often too quick to discount in favour of sensitivity and equity.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The anecdotes and case studies made this very real, and I could SO relate to the parents in his audiences who were asking questions and looking for answers.


    What about Malcolm Hillgartner’s performance did you like?

    The performance was easy to listen to and engaging, and made me want to sit int he car and listen more after I had arrived at my destination.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Boys Adrift?

    I am immediately reassessing the way I manage my boys' screen time and giving myself a pat on the back for going out of my way and spending endless hours taking kids to and from basketball practice and games.
