Positive Role Model TV for Boys
Whether they're science guys or adventurers, boys can choose from a lot of great TV shows with strong male characters in leadership roles. But for a show to be truly great for boys, it also needs to avoid stereotypes -- of both boys and girls -- and offer up a world that's made of male and female characters. That's why we've compiled this list of entertaining shows with awesome role models for boys. With so many iffy messages out there about body image, sexuality, and role models, boys (and girls) can benefit from talking about how men are portrayed in the media, and these shows can help start the discussion.
