  • Weak boys

    On page 150, Larry writes that boys do not become weak after we cuddle them. Have you seen a difference with your son vs non-attachment families in the inner strength of your boy?

    "As I have I have made clear, comforting children, cuddling them and valuing them, does not make boys weak. It makes them emotionally stronig; it makes them human. We are much less afraid that we used to be of girls being athletic and powerful and smart, though we still have room for improvement. Title IX, which required equal athletic facilities for girls in college, has changed things tremendously. Sports have become an acceptable ways for girls to excel, to become confident and physically powerful. Now we need an emotional IX for boys."
