Academic Engagement and Our Sons

9m | Feb 22, 2024

In this episode of the 'Raising Sons' podcast, Dr. Shell discusses the role of academic engagement in a boy's development. She explains the concept and importance of student engagement, with particular emphasis on boys' need to make a connection between current learning and future ambitions. The episode also highlights the national crisis of declining college enrollment among males. Dr. Shell underlines the wide-ranging consequences of this, including potential labor shortages in various professions, limited access to resources such as insurance, loss of purpose leading to possible issues in stability, and a widening wealth gap.
