This chapter covers a very important but usually neglected part of our sons' rearing. Studies on troubled boys made by child psychology experts, Dan Kindlon and Michael Thompson, show that even if each troubled boy has a different story to tell, all their stories share a common denominator: emotional ignorance and isolation.
