What's Happening to Our Boys?
Publisher:Penguin Books Australia
Following the success of What's Happening to Our Girls?, this book will investigate a wide range of the challenges boys and young men face as they grow up in the early 21st century. These include things such as increasing pressure on young boys to buy into consumerist culture, their exposure to violent video games, early sexualisation and exposure to pornography, the particular risks they face as young drivers, drugs and alcohol, mental health issues, safety on the internet, and bullying. That all sounds terrifying, but Maggie's emphasis is on finding solutions. She talks to a number of boys and their parents and teachers as well as professionals, and compiles a vast amount of evidence from various sources. This meticulously researched book will aim to confront the problems boys and young men face, and suggest positive and constructive ways to help them grow into resilient, productive and happy individuals.
