In this episode Scott reads from and discusses two books:
The Boy Crisis by Warren Farrell & John Gray; and
Fatherless America by David Blankenhorn.
- Describe your family dynamic growing up. Who

it to be that way?
Boy Crisis” reveals that dads are important because, when sons see
their dads, they see who they can become. What future are you

many areas: Grades and awards, skipping school, expulsion from
school, not finishing school, joining gangs, suicide rates, drug
use, homelessness, sexual abuse and victimization, and much more.

married, be a good dad themselves. How are you contributing to this
trend? How are you contributing to the solution?

her? What rhythms do you have in place to practice a healthy
