Celebrate boys’ boyness – and work with it - The Globe and Mail

Celebrate boys’ boyness – and work with it - The Globe and Mail | whatever | Scoop.it

Let's hear it for the boys!

 

"Boys’ existential issues are different from girls’. For a boy, the two most important life questions are: Will I find work that’s significant? And will I be worthy of my parents? When boys themselves are asked what they need, they say: I need purpose. I need to make a difference. I need to know I measure up. I need challenge. Above all, I need a meaningful vocation"

 

We talk in education about the need to teach for a love of learning.  YES!  Of course, but helping students find their passions is what leads to life long learning (and as a mother, I'd also add:  a way to feed yourself and stay engaged in meaningful activity).  Our males need this, especially.  As I think of our boys (now men)  I know:  each one did not fully engage in their education until their passion was entwined and they had a major life goal that involved a vocation they loved.  Education, work:  how you spend your time as an adult- these things are not easily separated.
