My first book was Motivate Your Son. I was surprised by its commercial success. I was surprised by how many people from all over the country bought the book. I was stunned when those from other English speaking countries tracked me down. I thought it was a book to help those in Shoreline Connecticut and other Connecticut locations where I coach/train students. Pre-pandemic, the book led to a virtual consulting practice with students far and wide. My favorite clients at the moment some hilarious Canadian young me from the far west regions of Canada.
I mention because I have been “on this issue” for a long time. Teen boys are floundering. Those teen boys become young men who flounder and they became older men who are single, bitter, and economically fragile.
The main reason: many are opting not to go to college.
Not only has this decision proven disastrous for their careers but also for their potential family lives.
