good book : LUSENET : RobertsFamily : One Thread

Greetings family: I know we are all touched by the recent shootings in Colorado. One of the people on the radio in the wake of the shootings made what I thought were some compelling points about violent boys. His book, Lost Boys, is well worth reading for anyone concerned about the state of our society, not just about the state of our young men. Link below.

"Lost Boys: Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them," by James Garbarino, hardcover (Free Press 1999) "A leading psychologist examines the recent explosion of adolescent violence, identifies children at risk, and offers proven methods to prevent aggressive behavior." Recommended

Some other books I recommend to parents and those thinking about having children are listed on our children and family page at

For those of you who might not know, none of the Colorado cousins attend Columbine High, although several have friends who do.

Best to all and God Bless. Chug
