How the new technologies, drugs and alcohol, peer pressure and porn affect our boys.
What kind of world are our boys inhabiting? Why are so many boys suffering body image and self-esteem problems? Why are they drawn to countless acts of violence on TV, in movies and in computer games? What impact does our highly sexualised climate, our emphasis on success and money, have on them as they grow up? And why are so many boys vulnerable to cyber bullying and to porn? In this follow-up book to What's Happening to Our Girls? Maggie Hamilton asks these and other vital questions, and provides numerous tips for parents and educators on how to create a more promising future for our children.
