10. Mai 1999
Featuring a new preface by the author on how parents can make a difference.

With author appearances on Good Morning America, The Today Show, 20 /20 and NPR's Fresh Air, and featuring articles in Newsweek, Time, and The New York Times, Real Boys is one of the most talked-about and influential books published this year.

Based on William Pollack's groundbreaking research at Harvard Medical School over two decades, Real Boys explores why many boys are sad, lonely, and confused although they may appear tough, cheerful, and confident. Pollack challenges conventional expectations about manhood and masculinity that encourage parents to treat boys as little men, raising them through a toughening process that drives their true emotions underground. Only when we understand what boys are really like, says Pollack, can we help them develop more self-confidence and the emotional savvy they need to deal with issues such as depression, love and sexuality, drugs and alcohol, divorce, and violence.

Dieser Titel ist in englischer Sprache.
Was macht kleine Jungs zu dem, was sie sind? In seinem Buch Real Boys: Rescuing Our Sons from the Myths of Boyhood präsentiert der Psychologe William Pollack die Ergebnisse aus seiner fast zwanzig Jahre währenden klinischen Arbeit und seiner erst kürzlich abgeschlossenen Studie, in der er die heutige Kinder- und Jugendzeit von Jungen untersuchte und die Art und Weise, wie sie ihre Position im sozialen und emotionalen Abseits durch Zorn und Gewalt manifestieren. Es gibt einen Verhaltenskodex für Jungen, behauptet Pollack -- ein ungeschriebener Kodex, der Jungen vorschreibt, wie sie sich zu verhalten haben, und der von ihnen verlangt, daß sie ihre Gefühle unterdrücken. Der Autor weist jedoch darauf hin, daß Jungen einsam, treu und bedrückt sind, daß sie mit ihrem Selbstwertgefühl zu kämpfen haben, daß sie gefährdet sind und daß sie jemanden brauchen, der sie versteht und ihnen zuhört. Jungen können energisch wie auch sensibel sein, betont er und räumt beim Leser wirksam und überzeugend mit einigen Vorurteilen auf, die besagen, daß Testosteron das Verhalten von Jungen kontrolliert, daß Jungen dem Geschlechtsstereotyp der Männlichkeit entsprechen müssen und daß Jungen "psychologisch unbewußte und emotional einzelgängerische Kreaturen" sind.

Real Boys präsentiert mehr als nur die Probleme, die Jungen heute haben. Es bietet auch Ratschläge und Hilfe, wie Eltern mit ihren Söhnen reden und ihre Launen und Gefühle lesen können, und wie sie ihnen helfen können, selbstsichere Männer zu werden, die sich selbst verwirklichen und ihre eigene Stimme erheben. --Ericka Lutz


"Anyone who lives or works with boys and men should read Real Boys." --Gail Sheehy

"A thoughtful and sensitive discussion of contemporary American boyhood." --Dr. Robert Coles, author of The Moral Intelligence of Children

"Just as Reviving Ophelia opened our eyes to the challenges faced by adolescent girls, Real Boys helps us hear and respond to the needs of growing boys." --Judith Jordan, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School

4.0 von 5 Sternen ESP or just good research, I don't know which... 27. Juli 2000
Dr. Pollack hit the nail on the head, so to speak. Despite his use of sweeping statements, he is extremely accurate in his research and his writing, and speaking as someone currently dealing with the phenomenon he describes as the "Boy Code" I can agree wholeheartedly...
Though I have never truly bought into it, there has always been a substantial amount of pressure just to act like everyone else, to lose my individuality, and there were people who thought I was a wuss, or a faggot, because I'm exceptionally well-read, intelligent, and outspoken.
Mostly, these people shut up when I demonstrate the reason I lead my division in percentage of baserunners thrown out stealing and total bases stolen.
Pollack writes about how boys relate to one another through action rather than speaking, another dead-on observations...people act as if boys are loners, but we're not. We have friends, but not by your narrow definition of friends.
People need to re-evaluate their thinking in light of these subjects and more. Our society asks young men to reconcile two entirely different images, a difficult task, and then tells a boy he must do it alone.
How absurd is that?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Adolescent Development 26. Juli 2000
Robert Burbank EDUC 503: Adolescence Review of professional book July 12, 2000
The novel Real Boys, by William Pollack, PH.D. discusses the way boys are made to adhere to a stereotype that prohibits them from being able to understand and express the wide range of emotions they experience through their development. What Pollack refers to as the "Boy's Code" are expectations society has of males to be independent, tough, free of weakness and reliance on others. Pollack believes boys are pushed into the world too quickly, without the tools to listen to their own inner needs and without the confidence that others will aid them in satisfying those needs. Pollack also analyzes the shaming tactics that are involved in the training of boys to this social code. Statements such as, "don't act like a girl" or "don't be such a wimp" serve to further push boys away from a competency in perceiving their own spectrum of emotions. Boys learn the only emotions they are able to reveal are ones of aggression of anger. Because of this, many boys are not in tune with sadness, loneliness and feelings of inferiority they possess. To express themselves many boys "act out" aggressively. In doing this they perpetuate the stereotype of males being "brutes". It may lead to difficulties in the home or at school. The acting on emotions and not dealing with understanding them often causes deeper emotion problems. Pollack talks about the danger of drugs adolescent boys may turn to in an attempt to numb the emotional pain they are experiencing. He also discusses attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity many boys exhibit because of the anxieties that have built up within them.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Valuable, but some shaky foundations 14. Juli 2000
I work with inner-city boys at church and read this book, knowing I wouldn't agree with all of it, to gain some insight into boy culture. I learned a lot from this book (the "timed-silence" syndrome, how boys play together, how boys show love, much more) but have some major philosophical questions. Most significant: What does it mean to be masculine? It's worse than meaningless to define "masculine" as anything a boy or a man happens to be. (Is bullying masculine behavior? murder? adultery?) We need to value masculinity, but first we need to know what it is. And surely it includes strength, not just emotional openness.
It's helpful to see where boys have been given impossible expectations. It's shameful to see adults expect five-year-olds to be men. Boys shouldn't be expected to be self-sufficient. But surely it's OK to begin to teach nine-year-olds how to develop into men? I don't like the idea of a society with interchangeable genders. Women are more nurturing, men more protective-and that is a good thing. Frankly, a society that tries to train men to be as gentle as women will probably soon find the men irrelevant, because women will still do it more naturally.
It's interesting too how much the author tried to change the way people react toward boys under the guise of trusting one's instincts. First, a woman should not follow the Boy Code with boys (though she's inclined to do so)-she should instead follow her instincts. Strange, the description of how women relate to boys sounded pretty instinctive to me! Odder yet, the author is downright suspicious of men being allowed to follow THEIR instincts in encouraging boys to be tougher. Can you imagine a man not letting his wife teach their daughter to understand others' feelings?

4.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent read 11. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I'm a guy who works with teenagers and I found this book extremely interesting and useful. I found much of what I've learned about boys through my own experience to be closely reflected in Pollack's book. Over and over the boys the author talks about reminded me of boys I've worked with, and I feel that Pollack's insights have really helped me gain a better understanding of the reasons behind some of the behaviors I have observed in boys.
I especially liked the "mix" of sound research and practical advice. The book has the depth that a foremost clinical psychologist can provide, but at the same time it's not overly theoretical. There are lots of practical suggestions that I know will help me do a better job working with boys.
I can't quite give the book five stars for two main reasons: First, the book is sometimes a little verbose and repetitive; second, while the first several chapters are a very easy and fascinating read, I found the later chapters a little "flatter" (again, more repetition than new insights). Nonetheless, I really think that many teachers, coaches, and mentors (besides parents, of course) could benefit greatly from reading this book. Strongly recommended.
