A child does not just become an adult within a short period of time. It takes time and processes, before that can be achieved.



A boy child is a young male being, who is usually from the age range of an infant to an adolescent. When a male child reaches adulthood, he is called a man.



As the boy child grows, he passes through many problems, which involves bad peer pressure- this can lead them into Cultism, Armed robbery, suffering from mental problems such as depression, bipolar disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).


Some do poorly in school or drop out. And often, there are disparities among boys based on ethnicity, race, family problems or structures, socio-economic status and the environment, they live in.


On most occasions, their parents neglect them, which exposes them to abuse of drugs, alcohol. Etc. 


From these challenges, we can see that, the society isn't friendly toward the boy child.


How can the society help them. What are the hopes and futures, if at all, help arises.

1. They should be educated and not be neglected.


2. Talks and Seminars should be organized for them, so that they would see their values in the society.


3. Those, who have already damaged their system with drugs should be treated and rehabilitated.


4. Parents and guardians should discourage their male children against dropping out of school.


5. They should be advised to use their time well, in doing the things they love, such as; playing of games, listening to music, and writing. Etc. With that, bad thoughts might be avoided.


Furthermore, when all these issues are been tracked down, either by what I have laid down or others. Our society for sure, would be a better one.
