First words
In the Golden Age of ancient Greece, boys on the threshold of manhood were guided by older men in the learning of life and morality, and the concept exists today through such programs as offered by big brothers, boy scouts and boys clubs.
Athletic coaches also set an example for many young men to follow, and in their demands for athletic fitness and good conduct in personal activities, they lead a boy properly on the sometimes  difficult road to manhood.
Boys often are faced with major challenges, sometimes from other boys who elect not to follow the good example of adults and seek to encourage others to follow them into pursuits that are questionable, sometimes even criminal. The blossoming of sexual desires is a major challenge to face for many boys, often more so when the boy is torn between the so-called “normal” relationships with girls, and a personal, perhaps not understood, interest in other males.
