Violence by young boys and adolescents is on the rise in America's suburbs, small towns, and rural communities. In light of recent school-based shootings, it's now clear that no matter where people live or how hard parents try, chances are their children are going to school with troubled boys capable of getting guns and pulling triggers. Building on his pioneering work as a psychologist, James Garbarino shows why young men and boys have become increasingly vulnerable to violent crime, and how lack of adult support poses a real threat to children's basic safety. Dr. Garbarino addresses the wide range of issues that boys of every temperament and from every background may have to face, and outlines the steps parents, teachers, and public officials can take to keep all children safer. He holds out hope and solutions for turning kids away from violence - before it is too late.
