Real Boys: Rescuing Our Sons from the Myths of Boyhood Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many boys today are in silent crisis. As the bestselling Reviving Ophelia took us into the world of girls, this groundbreaking AudioBook takes us into the private worlds of boys and shows how they can be raised to become happier, more successful men.

Many boys today are in trouble, either overtly (problems with drugs, or violence, or at school) or covertly (feelings of loneliness, isolation, disconnection, and despair). This AudioBook explains why — and also tells how we can rescue boys and help them become more confident and expressive men. William Pollack illuminates the daily lives of boys and lets us understand what they are really thinking and feeling. Based on a study just completed, this AudioBook explores why many boys experience sadness and how conventional expectations about manhood and masculinity encourage people to treat boys like "little men", raising them through a toughening process that drives their true emotions underground. Pollack explains what all of us can do to foster the healthy development of boys in various stages from infancy through the teenage years, and he addresses a wide range of topics — school, drugs, alcohol, sports, girls, depression, divorce, and more. After you listen to this AudioBook, you will see every boy in a new way.
