Overview
What is the boy crisis?

It's a crisis of education.
For the first time in American history, our sons will have less education than their dads.

It's a crisis of mental health.
As boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women.

It's a crisis of sexuality.
Sex is a minefield for our sons. They're bombarded with mixed messages, afraid of being either too sensitive or not sensitive enough.

It's a crisis of fathering.
Boys with less-involved fathers are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison.

It's a crisis of purpose.
Boys' old senses of purposes, being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner, are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a "purpose void," feeling alienated, withdrawn and addicted to immediate gratification. Compounding this issue are addicting video games that lead to distraction and ADHD.

So, what is The Boy Crisis?
A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers and policy-makers can do to renew our sons' sense of purpose to help them become men, fathers, and leaders worthy of our respect.
