Michael Moynihan, Upper School Head at The Heights, offers practical and concrete guidance on how to help your son right the academic ship when his failure is entirely within his control.  As you will hear in this episode, we reference two other episodes related to academics: 
In academics, as in other areas, we come face to face with the cold and hard fact that our boys' destiny is very much in their hands.  We temper that realization with a healthy dose of patience and optimism, and with the knowledge that there is much we can do to set our boys on the right path.

This podcast features the first half of a lecture delivered by our headmaster on the topic of Raising Boys in an Age of Affluence.  We live in one of the wealthiest cities, in the wealthiest country, in the wealthiest era in the history of the world. In general, there's no place we'd rather be and we are blessed. There are however, certain predispositions that societal affluence can engender in our students and sons. There are also many things that we, as parents and teachers, can do to cultivate our sons into tough, mindful, devoted men. Tune into HeightsCast next week for part II of the lecture.
