This is long term program to empower our boys to be successful in life”

Boys’ problems are not intractable and their strengths are many. Research has shown that, sometimes, simple steps can go a long way toward helping support boys as they confront challenges in life: Some ways of helping boys include:

  1.  Showing them that adults care about them.
  2. Talking to them candidly about self destructive behaviours such smoking,  alcohol, drugs and substace  abuse.
  3. Encouraging them to mentor each other positively.
  4. Providing them with positive, supervised ways to spend their time when they are not in school.
  5. Caring adults in families, schools, and communities  coming together to build comprehensive solutions to boys challenges that focus not just on individuals, but on the social networks that surround them.

There is no one right answer tp boys problems. Some boys may respond well to simple interventions, while others may require years of additional support. What we do know is that, despite challenges, there is great opportunity to prepare boys to develop their capabilities, reach their potential and successfull transition to adulthood.

Many observers of the contemporary societies are observing and occasionally commenting on the increasing “man problem” possibly fed by the “boy crisis.” In a nutshell the “man problem” is that young men are simply dropping out of the social order and opting to live dependently on parents or others in the society. “Failure to launch” is one term for this. While women are forging ahead in business, politics, journalism, education, men are increasingly choosing not to compete. They are dropping out of school, choosing not to go to college, living in their parents’ or friends’ basements, drifting from one part-time job to another and spending most of their time playing video games, tinkering with technology (for their own enjoyment and satisfaction), and “hanging out.” In a nutshell the “boy crisis” is that boys are falling behind girls at all levels of education, retreating into themselves, failing to thrive as productive persons aimed at becoming successful men. In other words, they are choosing (whether consciously or unconsciously) not to “play the game” contemporary society has offered them.

All kinds of reasons have been offered for the “man problem” and the “boy crisis.” Many observers say they do not care; it is what it is and if it correlates with the rise of girls and women it is well worth it and does not matter. Males are obsolete, meaning they have nothing to offer society as males.  The often heard advice to males is “Man up!”—meaning, choose to join the new order and make the best of it with the new rules or drop out and lose. Why is this even a cause for anyone’s concern? If women can replace men in every role men traditionally played, what’s the problem? Men are not being locked out as women once were and still sometimes are. Even many men do not see any real problem worth paying attention to in either the “boy crisis” or the “man problem.” Boys and men who drop out make their own bed of failure and deserve to suffer the consequences. I suggest, however, that the problem, if left unaddressed, will come back to bite us. By “us” I mean society. When any large segment of society is left to flounder and fail to thrive, everyone suffers in the long run. That seems self-evident to me. This is why I humbly request all men and women of insights and goodwill to help us empower the boy-child.

“A walk with the boy-child” is an initiative to avert “Boy crisis” and in the long term “man problems”. I will keep persuading parents to enroll their sons to this program without fear. I humbly urge all to share the boy- child mentorship insight articles posted in this group to as many friends as possible.
