Movies with Incredible Role Models for Boys
Boys deserve more than action-hero role models, and these incredible movies offer examples of kindness, selflessness, courage, and sensitivity -- examples that are good for everyone to see but especially for boys, who too often are bombarded with messages that they should be strong no matter what. When Hogarth Hughes feels compassion for the trapped Iron Giant and works to free him, or when Billy Elliot pursues his passion for dancing despite what people say, boys see that manliness isn't just fighting and being tough. Inspire the boys (and girls) in your life with these fun, family-friendly films. For more strong role models, try these TV shows with positive role models for girls.
