This is such an interesting article.
“The boys’ crisis is something that has never been seen in human history,” concludes author Sun Yunxiao, a researcher at the government-funded China Youth & Children Research Center. “Our future largely depends on the success of rescuing our boys.”
As a mother to a son, I've been saying this for years. It is happening in our own country. Boys are simply not allowed to be boys anymore. They are punished for their nature. Now the same is happening to girls too.
I'll condense the article.
Due to the one child policy in China, many more boys were born than girls. Families treasured the boys and raised them as "little emperors". They have lost most of their masculine traits. There was a show on TV which had very effeminate singers which caused national outrage. Parents in
China now are sending their sons to a special club to re-train their masculinity.
We need to be honest and have this same discussion in the US, but it seems taboo. I'm sure anyone that has ever taught can tell you that boys are girls learn differently, especially in the early grades.
