What about the boys?

All children must be advocated for and protected, but often the issues that boys face are left out of the conversation. ScienceDaily (2009) found that boys have lower literacy rates, lower grades, and lower engagement at school. When they reach high school, boys are more likely to drop-out, which can affect them in the long-run in terms of employment and mental health. When compared to girls, suicide rates are higher for boys, along with premature death, criminal behaviour, and violence. We need to address the unique issues that boys face and not perpetuate the societal narrative that boys should be tough and fight through challenges without help.
