  4. 4. Theory • Interested in violence in children, especially in boys (Lost Boys) • Violence in children is caused by several factors: – Attachment problems • Dissociation from feelings of fear and anxiety – Depression – Abandonment by mother/father • Leads to skewed view of family figures/roles • Feelings of rejection – Abuse and neglect • Combination of these factors = creation of toxic environment • Toxic environment leads to a “lost childhood” – Lack of empathy, affirmation, idea of a future orientation – Low self-esteem, intelligence levels
  5. 5. Classroom Applications • Eliminate violence in the classroom. • Be a role model. – Provide support, affirmation that children have value and potential, love • Have the ability to identify behavioral problems and stop them. • Introduce ideas about future life plans or career choices, and ways to support and prepare children for them. • Provide a way for children to socialize without violence and actions they have seen at home.
  6. 6. Critique • Studies are too gender-based (focuses too much on differences between boys and girls) • Oversimplified theory – Doing “x” may not always lead to “y” • All children are different; these ideas won’t work for everyone • His ideas are not widely critiqued
