Guest: Warren Farrell, PhD, Author of “The Boy Crisis,” “Why Men Are the Way They Are,” The Myth of Male Power” All over the world, boys are in crisis, says activist and author Warren Farrell. They’re falling behind girls in education. They’re jailed at much higher rates. Their suicide rates as teens are much higher than among girls. In his new book, “The Boy Crisis” Farrell argues that American society has made great strides in empowering girls to find new purpose and possibilities, but we’ve not given the same attention to boys, who are getting left behind. Farrell offers concrete suggestions for parents on raising boys with a healthier sense of purpose at home, at work and in society.
