‘Let’s face it; I’m stupid. You know it, I know it, and my parents know it!”

These words were spoken in anguish and anger to me by Chad, a 12-year-old student in my office. He reflected a profound problem that I could no longer ignore as a school principal. I had seen too many boys who did not succeed in school. I knew he was not stupid, and his parents saw him as a smart, if unfocused, child. But our opinions no longer mattered. His experience in school had convinced him otherwise. He dropped out a few years later and I was saddened, but not surprised.

Your own son may not become a drop-out, but if he is like many boys, he may dislike school or not apply himself to the fullest and be perfectly willing to let the girls in his class achieve more highly. Statistics show that this leads to boys who are increasingly unprepared for a world in which high levels of education and social-emotional intelligence are required.

Without even knowing it, many of our sons are falling behind. This is something that is only going to become more frequent as schools bring in new curriculums like the Common Core Standards. A good question to ask yourself is: Does he put as much passion and effort into school as he puts into video games?  If the answer is no, then you may need some other tools to help him get there.

What can a concerned parent do? I have found that you can have a profound impact on your son’s success—no matter what the situation at school— if you use the “6 Secrets of Boys Learning” I have identified in my book Helping Boys Learn.

    I don’t have any boys (yet – we’re not done yet!), but we have definitely seen the shift in education being more “female oriented” – more lecture and quiet time style and less moving and doing (obviously some girls do better with hands on and some boys do better just sitting and learning, but it’s more common the other way). Good to know there are things we can do to keep boys interested in learning too!

      I know, I had no idea that “movement” was part of how they are wired and learn :) My son is always moving around and I would tell him to stop, but now I know it’s ok and he actually pays attention more when he is moving :)
