Societies expectations for boys as they grow into adulthood are more strict than the expectations that society has for women. I believe this because the men, in my opinion have a lot more say in society than women do. Men should learn, as they grow to mature and make big, and right choices in society! From reading the book, Lord of the Flies, I have learned that the boys are more capable than girls at any age when it comes to hunting, and fending for themselves out in nature. Men, as they grow into adulthood, should learn to make good decisions and be the more mature, man in a family.
