Excellent article with lots of great insights. I am a very driven, professional, independent single mom to 3 boys and 2 girls. I can see each of my boys experiencing a lot of the struggles you detail in this article, from struggles with learning, to lack of direction & motivation. As a single mom, what types of things do you recommend I do to help my boys overcome what they are going trough? I pride myself in teaching my kids to set high goals for themselves, and that they can achieve anything if they work hard. The message seems to really resonate with my girls, but seems to have the opposite impact with my boys. Would love to hear your thoughts on how we, as mothers can help our boys move beyond these barriers.
