What's happening to boys?
Washington Post, March 31, 2006.
In his op-ed for the Washington Post March 31 2006, Dr. Sax called attention to the growing phenomenon of the "Failure to Launch" boy/man: a young man in his 20's, or even his 30's, who is still living at home with his parents — and who doesn't see what the problem is. The Washington Post invited Dr. Sax to host a one-hour on-line chat, which broke all previous records for the Washington Post: they shut the system down after receiving 395 posts. Dr. Sax himself says that the transcript of the chat session is more interesting than his own op-ed was. It's certainly a lot longer. You can read the transcript of the online chat session here.
