What is it that we want to see in our young men? Is it a change in the style of clothing that has evolved so radically over the past few years? Is it their value system that unfortunately often praises the misogynistic ramblings of today's pop culture? Is it their redefining and interpretation of the 21st Century family? What is the final product that we desire to see in young men everywhere throughout the United States of America? We can no longer avoid addressing these issues in the hope that they will resolve themselves any time soon. Resolving these questions and implementing exciting, comprehensive strategies are essential if America is to realize its mission of creating healthy, young men who successfully transition into strong heads of households in the years to come.
