Overlooked by a society the reinforces and demands impossible standards of 'masculinity', boys who are uninterested in competitive sports or who have non-aggressive personalities are often vilified and bullied for being different. Compassionate, empowering and instructive, The Last Boys Picked will help parents, teachers, coaches and caregivers identify the emotional and social hurdles the boys face in school and on the playground, offering specific action steps to help any child build resilience and a healthy self-esteem - with life-long benefits.
