So a href=”http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/03/30/AR2006033001341.html” now a third of all men 22-34 /a are living at home with little motivation to do much of anything (thanks to the reader who emailed me this story).br /br /blockquoteThis phenomenon cuts across all demographics. You’ll find it in families both rich and poor; black, white, Asian and Hispanic; urban, suburban and rural. According to the Census Bureau, fully one-third of young men ages 22 to 34 are still living at home with their parents — a roughly 100 percent increase in the past 20 years. No such change has occurred with regard to young women. Why?/blockquotebr /br /Maybe this is what happens when you motivate boys and men by telling them that they are the cause of the world’s problems.br /br /Update: The a href=”http://www.boysproject.net/issues.html”Boys Project /athat is mentioned in the emWashington Post /emarticle actually looks like it addresses some salient issues for boys such as suicide and the negative messages boys hear about their sex.
