Publisher's Summary

With so much confusion about the role of men in our society, it's no wonder so many parents and teachers are at a loss about how to bring up boys. Our culture has vilified masculinity, and as a result boys are suffering. Parents, teachers, and others involved in shaping the character of boys have many questions. In Bringing Up Boys, Dr. James Dobson, America's most trusted authority on family issues, tackles these questions and offers advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles. Bringing Up Boys is a must-read book for parents, teachers, social workers, youth leaders, and counselors--anyone involved in the challenge of turning boys into good men.

    "Interesting but bigoted"

    Although the author mentions some good points. Most of the book is from a religious Christian perspective. Which clearly is fundamentalist and discriminatory. Yes there are bad homosexuals, but then there are also bad christians too. The perspective seems narrow and really only applicable to a Christian perspective. If you want a deeper more heart cantered perspective look elsewhere.

    "Great book"

    Having an energetic young boy, this books helped me see how wonderfully normal he is despite what others say! We have held our ground to not squash our son's beautiful spirit that will make him a successful and healthy man someday! Definitely read this book if you have a boy who began climbing the furniture as soon as he could walk!!

    "Good advice"

    This book is full of great and practical advice. So often we think we are doing our kids a favour by giving in to certain things, when in reality we are making the wrong decision. I wish I had read this book ten years ago; however, I can still use many of these principles now in my pre-teen.
    Great book that opened my eyes to so many things! Thank-you Dr. Dobson!

    "Timeless!"

    This book prepares parents for the joys and fears of parenting boys. I appreciated the author's sincerity and willingness to lay everything out. Only a Godly caring individual could be this honest. I am so grateful and my eyes have certainly been opened. A must read that is good for parents today and for years to come.
