Summary
What is the boy crisis? Crisis in education: Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency in reading, math, and science. It's a crisis in mental health: ADHD is on the rise. As boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times more likely than of young women. It's a crisis in fathering: Boys are going up with less-involved fathers and are more likey to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become deliquent, and end up in prison. It's a crisis of purpose: Boys old sense of purpose (being the warrior, leader, sole breadwinner) is fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a "purpose void," feeling alienated, withdrawn and addicted to immediate gratification
