Attorney-at-Law and women's and children's rights advocate Margarette Macaulay has opined that the way in which boys are raised have a direct correlation with the level of anger in our nation's men.
"Many women raise their sons with a sense of entitlement. This, in later years, causes them to have a feeling that society owes them something even if they haven't worked for, or earned it. When this is not forthcoming, then the end result is often an angry man," Macaulay said.
She was speaking at the Women's Leadership Initiative (WLI) which marked the celebration of International Womens' Day with a luncheon at the Wyndham hotel in Kingston on Friday.
Macaulay further stated that its time for society to realise that boys, too, need to be brought up fully rounded and exposed as their female counterparts. By doing this, society helps to protect them.
The WLI is a committee of the United Way of Jamaica, whose mission is to build bridges of cooperation in developing, implementing and sustaining projects in health, education and philanthropy, which contribute to the improved well-being of all Jamaicans.
