This article is a research piece on hyper masculinity. It will discuss what hyper masculinity is, how it effects our society and the ways that we can prevent it. This is a review of many other articles pertaining to hyper masculinity. It also includes my attempt at combating hyper masculinity stemming from childhood interactions and beliefs. Research states that masculinity is ingrained into our children at a young age. This masculinity can transform to hyper masculinity in young men due to simple influences. It is important to combat this behavior at all stages of development. This article will focus on the young school age, however it is still important for programs with in older grades. Interactions between both young children themselves as well as their teachers and parents is important.
