I quite agree with a colleague of mine that boys are made for outdoors; they aren’t made to be holed up in the house and spend hours before technology such as television, phones, or computers. I remember a father of a three or four year old boy toddler expressing his concerns about the child being quiet and less social. I was happy that he was thinking about it. Boys don’t have to be feminized but they must get equipped with skills such as social skills, and getting enough physical activity; it is also important for them to have a father/mentor who demands excellence or challenges them to perform better, and can guide them in dealing with “boy-challenges”. It is time that we find ways to get to our boys rather than losing them to technology and “feminization”.
