'Cotto/Gottfried' from the Archive: What is 'The Boy Crisis' and what does it mean for our future? Warren Farrell explains.
Being a boy in America today does not mean the same thing which it once did. Increasingly, boys and young men struggle to find themselves amid a society which questions traditional masculinity, experiences an all-time-high of female single-parent households, and eschews fatherhood as a necessity for raising children, among other things. What does all of this mean for male youth and where do they go from here? Warren Farrell is a veteran psychologist who has been trying to answer these questions for years on end. He co-authored a new book, aptly titled 'The Boy Crisis,' which seeks to provide a definitive answer to the query of what role young males should have in contemporary America. On this week's episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried,' Farrell shares his views on what the crisis with boys entails and how it should be dealt with.
