we have to understand how average stress that takes up mental energy leaving us less mental energy to learn with.the belief boys should be strong allows rough treatment. This is amplified for boys. this creates high average stress social emotional distance low social vocabulary more distrust; high muscle tension hurting motivation to write and activity.We need low average stress and high social vocabulary to enjoy reading. belief boys should be strong leaves only discipline for boys.They are given honor only on condition of achievement. This leaves many boys seeking honor outside school in even in early grades through sports/video games to receive love/honor. learning requires accumulation of mental frames. many boys from nice families lag behind their female peers in those areas.the myth of genetics is creating the growing Male Crisis and many thousands of teen deaths each year from drug/alcohol abuse and suicide.
