Sometimes it is difficult to be a feminist and a mom of boys. I have to cheer at the success that girls are finding in schools and college, but I do worry how the school system treats boys. I worry that boys, who lag behind girls developmentally, are traumatized by a school system that prizes perfectionism over other character traits.All the better the post for its lack of "war on boys" rhetoric.
A TRENCHANT OBSERVATION FOR OUR TIMES.
