Many teens and young adults have trouble growing up.  We share ideas on why, and news of sophisticated helping resources through Curation, Podcasts and consultations.   The topic is written by and for the schools, programs, professionals and parents who are part of the network of private parent-choice programs and services that service struggling young people and their families. Inclusion here is no indication of endorsement of any school, program or service.  I am a member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP) and a Certified Educational Planner (CEP).

Toxic masculinity creates a society that can be dangerous « The Reflector Online

While the definition of toxic masculinity is not clear-cut, the Good Men Project identifies toxic masculinity as “a narrow and repressive description of manhood, designating manhood as defined by violence, sex, status and aggression.” Not all masculinity is bad, and in no way are men themselves toxic. Masculinity only becomes toxic when it becomes unhealthy for men and the women around them. Toxic masculinity manifests itself as a result of the unrealistic expectations that society places on men.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

"Toxic Masculinity" is becomming an often used phrase in our culture, and this essay seems to see uncalled for violence as a major element in it.  -Lon
