Boys

As father of two girls and a boy I really enjoyed Jenni ‘Woman’s Hour’ Murray’s Ten myths about boys. Our Olly is nearly five and he’s sometimes hard work but I think of him as a pioneer, striding out into difficult, masculine territory without a map. Thinking about the very poor popular image of young males these days, I reckon being a boy can only get harder and I hope he has the resources and the love to turn all the ridicule and opprobrium to positive use and to be a successful, happy human being despite it all.
