Friendship for the 21st Century Boy

Heights Headmaster, Alvaro de Vicente, shares his thoughts on friendship. We are told that friendship is one of the highest goods of human existence. Yet, despite our purported ability to find “friends” at the click of a button, building an authentic friendship takes time and effort, especially for our boys. Hear Mr. de Vicente discuss ways that parents can coach, manage, and accompany their sons through the selection or friends, and the building up of friendships that will last a lifetime.  In particular our Headmaster emphasizes the importance of boredom, the role of parents, and the final end of virtue as king in the realm of friendship.
