As a mother of a single, 28 year old son, this sounds interesting and provoking. I hope I’ve already done a good job of raising a healthy son, especially a tolerant, responsible, hard working, intelligent young person.
Young men face a number of issues today, some without good father role models, some being threatened by the rise of feminism and strong(er) women in today’s society, some questioning their gender identity. And the high level of divorce (over 50%) probably doesn’t help any children growing up in America.
