Putting the “Boy” Back Into Boyhood

wrestling650

When I was a boy back in the 1960’s, the girl next door “had” to go to nursery school.  While we were out running around, playing, and having a good time, we occasionally wondered what was wrong with her.  It had to be pretty bad for her to have to go to school before kindergarten!  We felt sorry for her!Today, so many kids go to pre-school that if you don’t, your friends wonder what’s wrong with you.  Part of the reason for the rise and “imperative” of pre-school is that US students are incr … [Read more...]

Unknown-1

I had a fascinating “discussion” with a Facebook friend a few weeks ago.  He has been a supporter of my work on boys and is passionate about the issue as well.  But he took me to task, saying I had “lost it,” I’d “lost focus,” I’d “contaminated my ministry to boys,” all because I also, from time to time, address the issues and challenges that our girls are facing in the 21st Century.  Bottom line, I had sold my soul to the “feminist agenda” and had therefore lost my ability to fight for our boys. … [Read more...]

When I was in 7th grade, my friend Gary and I were walking along a busy street in St. Louis Park, Minnesota.  Gary had a squirt gun, which he hid under his arm as he squirted cars passing by.  (Sounds like boy behavior, doesn’t it?)  The cars were going so fast and the gun was so cheap that maybe a couple of drops landed on an occasional car. Unfortunately, a couple of drops landed on a sports car driven by a man in his late 20’s or early 30’s.  He hit the brakes, jumped out of his car and began … [Read more...]
