On Wednesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew talked to attorney Lisa Bloom, who is also the author of "Swagger: 10 Urgent Rules for Raising Boys in an Era of Failing Schools, Mass Joblessness, and Thug Culture".
“What I talk about is the four cultural forces hammering boys,” Bloom said. “Failing schools, our terrible economy right now where young men in particular have very high unemployment rates. Also, thug culture -- a lot of media messages that encourage boys to be violent, to attack women, to beat up gay men. And the fourth one is mass incarceration, where we incarcerate four times as many boys today we did when I was a girl.”
