Following the success of What's Happening to Our Girls?, this book will investigate a wide range of the challenges boys and young men face as they grow up in the early 21st century. These include things such as increasing pressure on young boys to buy into consumerist culture, their exposure to violent video games, early sexualisation and exposure to pornography, the particular risks they face as young drivers, drugs and alcohol, mental health issues, safety on the internet, and bullying. That all sounds terrifying, but Maggie's emphasis is on finding solutions. She talks to a number of boys and their parents and teachers as well as professionals, and compiles a vast amount of evidence from various sources. This meticulously researched book will aim to confront the problems boys and young men face, and suggest positive and constructive ways to help them grow into resilient, productive and happy individuals.
Great book for any one with boys around 10 years and over. It is worth reading early in your childs life and having on the book shelf to refer back to. Gives parents a hand to discuss topics like violence and pornography which kids are exposed to much early than in previous generations. Particularly now with the invention of things like Ipods where kids have access to the internet with only minimal adult supervision. Also a very easy to read parenting book - didnt sit on my bedside table for too long like other parenting books.
