Al Mohler invites Kay Hymowitz to his podcast to talk about the problem society faces today of boys taking much longer to grow into manhood. Hymowitz has recently published a new book titled, Manning Up: How the Rise of Women is Turning Men into Boys. She identifies many males in their twenties and thirties as “child men.”
Mohler introduces his podcast:
Something is happening when it comes to young men in America and for that matter around the world. It might be better stated as something is not happening. What is not happening is that boys are not moving into manhood at anything like what we might describe as on schedule. Instead we’ve entered a new very, very troubling period in American life in which the transition from boyhood to manhood is anything but clear and in many cases anything but happening.
Kay Hymowitz is the William E. Simon Fellow at the Manhattan Institute one of the nation’s most important think tanks. She’s also a contributing editor of City Journal. She writes extensively on issues including childhood, family issues, poverty, and cultural change in America.
