A Message from Michael Thompson, Ph.D.
Host of the Raising Cain Documentary

Boys need us to understand themselves better. In this documentary, I hope to give grown-ups a look inside boys' emotional lives. Boys can be mysterious and confusing, but underneath their bravado they experience all of the fears and uncertainties that are part of human life. If we can make them feel safe, they will tell us what they are feeling and that's what we tried to do in Raising Cain.
