Raising Boys – Tips to Make You Think

The differences between men and women are often discussed, ranted about, and written about (Mars and Venus.) It’s a common acceptance that men and women are typically polar opposites and how trying to understand the opposite gender is next to impossible. While it would be easier to simply accept this as fact, the truth remains, once parenthood becomes a reality, all gloves are off.

But, your student falls even further behind, discouragement settles in and the student exhibits secondary behaviors — loss of attention, deteriorating behavior, plummeting self-esteem. Of course there are students who will persist as hard as they can but suffer for it with headaches, stomachaches, anxiety or fatigue.
