Comments: Educating Boys

Just remember the Simpsons episode, where the math teacher asks how math makes the girls feel? That was fun stuff....

What's your thought on boys and girls learning how to be good adults, not necessarily basic education standards of math and english? Part of my experience tells me that boys do not learn how to be men from being around women, no matter how strong or good the woman is (good being defined as morally good), and that they need the presence of strong or good men in their life to look up to, and aspire to become.

I've heard it said that girls do not need the same, but I have no first hand experience in that.

Sigh. I have a long road in front of me.
