The Trouble With Boys

From the time they are toddlers to the point when they become men, their loud, aggressive and sometimes violent ways are often dismissed with the notion that “boys will be boys”. But what does that, actually, mean? Is it true that “boys” are predestined to behave in a certain way? And, if so, how? Even as our society becomes less willing to tolerate the bad behavior the old cliché was often used to condone, the attitude still prevails that says boys/men should be strong, silent and resilient. But are they “naturally” so?

THE TROUBLE WITH BOYS explores the fascinating new health science which indicates that males and females are biologically inclined to behave in certain ways.
