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 Many bright boys are experiencing a "purpose void", feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification.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.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Healed a Deep Wound with my Daughter
Would you listen to The Boy Crisis again? Why?
Yes, as it The Boy Crisis does a great job of describing what the boy crisis is, and how it has become one of the greatest hidden secrets of our time. It explains that this is a crisis of Education, Mental Health, Fathering, and a lack of Purpose.
This book is priceless. I believe that if it were available during my marriage, I would have my daughter in my life today.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The stories about the young men that carried out the school shootings.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were too many to list as the book is filled with data and insights that describe what the Boy Crisis is and what needs to be done to address the serious issues facing them.
Any additional comments?
This book enabled me to heel years of deep sadness and hurt. Written about the boy crisis, it is just as relevant to a girl crisis. As a father who saw his teenage daughter grow up fatherless due to divorce, I am so very grateful for Warren’s immense amount of research and reference to numerous studies that helped me to understand the causes and the impact of children losing a parent. If you are a fatherless child or a parent of a fatherless child, be prepared to feel sadness, anger, and even shed some tears, but don’t stop reading. By the end, it is possible that you can heal a wound that has affected your entire life.

Can't recommend it enough!!
One book I know will be re reading. I was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information in the 2nd part on ADHD. Both co authors are easy to listen to and have their own way of exploring this subject.

Great antidote to the entitled female narrative
For men everywhere (and the men in your lives if you’re female).
Factual, data driven and fabulously informed insights to counter the current vogue for men bashing and labelling any male behaviour as toxic masculinity when it doesn’t fit a feminism doctrine.
Hopefully opens societal eyes to the hidden challenges men and boys face in today’s world... if of course anyone actually cares to be informed or accept that men are not all privileged and toxic.
