Raising Men Who Read
I love this article by the Wall Street Journal about raising boys who read. Thankfully, my son is becoming a bibliophile and is learning the love of reading, but I think that the average boy is a disaster waiting to happen in this regard. Their natural love of visual stimuli combined with the bombardment of electronic media places them at a huge disadvantage in this society. Girls are succumbing, as well, but the problem is more pronounced in boys. If the men of future generations are robbed of their ability to think because they've been fed brain-candy all their lives, we are in great peril.
