    What are little boys made of? It used to be frogs, snails, and puppy dog tails, but today it is MTV, ADD, and STDs. So how do parents raise their sons to be respectful and responsible young men in a toxic culture that relentlessly undermines masculine virtues such as moral strength, self-restraint, and respect for women? By letting boys be boys.

    Overall

    There are some good points in this book, but generally comes off as an "in my day, we used to play marbles, and bought gum drops for a penny". Some how they think because kids grow up different then they did 50 years ago it's worse. Video games are bad, hand written letters are good. The facts don't add up to what they are trying to portray as reality. Perception that this generation is the worst, is false and fabricated by the media. Because that is what sells and what older people want to hear. It's easier to accept that, then the facts.

    If you want that type of book, and very conservative thinking this is the book.
