Bringing Up Boys Book Excerpt:

Here’s sensible advice and caring encouragement on raising boys from the nation’s most trusted parenting authority, Dr. James Dobson. With so much confusion about the role of men in our society, it’s no wonder so many parents and teachers are asking questions about how to bring up boys. Why are so many boys in crisis? What qualities should we be trying to instill in young males? Our culture has vilified masculinity and, as a result, an entire generation of boys is growing up without a clear idea of what it means to be a man. In the runaway bestseller Bringing Up Boys, Dr. Dobson draws from his experience as a child psychologist and family counselor, as well as extensive research, to offer advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles.

Raising Boys to Be Good Men Book Excerpt:

A parent’s guide and an “unflinching” account of the author’s “journey through the minefield of masculinity to become a better husband, dad, and human” (Michael Ian Black, comedian and New York Times–bestselling author of A Better Man). Toxic masculinity is on display daily from public figures—and we see anger, dysfunction, violence, and depression in young men suffocated by harmful social codes. Our sons are told to stop throwing like a girl. They’re ordered to “man up” when they cry. They hear “boys will be boys” when they behave badly. These messages are damaging—as is the bullying that often follows attempts by boys to just relax and be themselves. But the power lies in the hands of parents to make things better. It's not only possible to raise boys who aren't emotionally stifled and shoved into stereotypical boxes; it's vital if we want a generation of men who can express their emotions, respect women, and help bring society back to a halfway healthy place. We can reframe manhood. From the father who gained viral fame after tweeting his support for his son’s painted fingernails (and who knows toxic masculinity very well), this is an often-humorous personal account and a source of practical tips on: Teaching boys that “girl” is not an insult and retiring phrases like “boys will be boys” Showing boys that dealing with their emotions makes them stronger, not “weak” Letting boys pursue nontraditional interests and hobbies Talking to boys about consent and privilege Modeling healthy and respectful relationships for boys to emulate “If you are the parent of a boy . . . this is the book you need . . . insightful, enlightened, practical.” —Peggy Orenstein, New York Times-bestselling author of Boys & Sex “He’s an engaging guide . . . Gouveia approaches his subject with honesty and concern for the dad as much as the son.” —The Washington Post

Mothering Our Boys US Edition Book Excerpt:

"Maggie is earthy and real, full of love and knowledge, especially on raising sons." - Steve Biddulph "Maggie's perspective on raising boys is spot on. She writes with humor and depth, providing insight and strategies for many of the most important issues facing moms. There is a lovely ease to her writing and a powerful honesty. I hope every mother of a son (and everyone else!) will read this book. The future of the world, to a great extent, depends on how we raise our boys." - Michael Gurian, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Wonder of Boys and Saving Our Sons If we can see the world through boys' eyes a little better, we will make different choices in the way we mother them… and we will find them less confusing, and love them more deeply. Mothers of sons are worried about raising their boys in a world where negative images of masculinity are front and centre of our media, almost every day. Not only that, but statistically our boys are still struggling in many ways. Even though we live in a time where we recognise that nothing in gender is fixed, it remains a fact that the influence of a mother on her son is massive. A mother of four sons herself, Maggie Dent draws on her personal experience - and over four decades work as a teacher, counsellor and now author and speaker - to help build understanding, empathy and compassion for our boys. Maggie shares her five key secrets that every mum needs to know and uses the voices of men she has worked with and surveyed to reveal what really matters in a boy's relationship with his mother and other mother figures. Maggie is one of Australia's most popular parenting authors and educators, and her seminars about boys have sold out all across Australia and in the UK. She is finally sharing her insights, her reflections, and (as always) her humour around mothering boys to help you be the mum your son needs you to be.

What s Happening to Our Boys Book Excerpt:

What kind of world are our boys growing up in? Why are increasing numbers of boys suffering body image and self-esteem problems? Why do they feel worthless without the latest branded toy, game or item of clothing? What makes soft drinks, snacks and fast foods so attractive? Why are they drawn to countless acts of violence on TV, in movies and in computer games? What impact does our highly sexualised climate and our emphasis on success and money have on them as they grow? And why are so many boys vulnerable to cyber bullying and to porn? Childhood and teenage life is changing rapidly, leaving parents exhausted and confused as to how best to tackle the many issues they face. How does this high-pressure environment affect a boy's confidence, his values and aspirations, his wellbeing, his sense of community, his attitudes to girls and women? In her follow-up book to What's Happening to Our Girls? Maggie Hamilton asks these and many other vital questions, as well as providing numerous tips for parents and educators on how to create a more promising future for our children.
