    I had no idea this was a widespread problem among boys going through school, and now my son's lost interest in school makes more sense. There's a lot of great tips in here for helping him get back on track and more engaged for future education and the real world. Much thanks to Withers & Gill for writing this.

    Great book for all caregivers. Give this book to your teachers, or principals. They should read it too.

    I love the section on mentors and how important it is to have boys with strong male role models and how the discussion of limiting the kids hooked up time. Limited TV and video games. It makes so much sense.

    Also, I read a lot to my daughter. Mostly because she has problems reading but the book suggests that parents of boys tend to read less to them. So true. I will start doing what I used to do with my son before he was a self reader. I would read a paragraph and he would read one. After we can discuss the book and hopefully this will help him better decipher what the book was about. Something he has a problem with.

    Great suggestions and I think this year will be the best ever.
