Publisher's Summary

Playing off the themes in the Caldecott Medal-winning children's book Where the Wild Things Are, this informative, practical, and encouraging guide will help parents guide boys down the path to healthy and authentic manhood.

Wild Things addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual parts of a boy, written by two therapists who are currently engaged in clinical work with boys and their parents and who are also fathers raising five sons. This book contains chapters such as "Sit Still! Pay Attention!", "Deficits and Disappointments", and "Rituals, Ceremonies, and Rites of Passage".

What the Critics Say

"This worthy, engaging owner's manual on boys aged two to 22 is written from a reserved, supportive Christian perspective." (Library Journal)

    "Excellent, absolute gold!"

    As the father of 3 boys this has been a life changer for me. A wonderful blend of psychology, neuroscience, experience, wisdom as dads, counsellors and pastors. Performance was fantastic, humorous and warm, with feeling. I have already recommended to several other friends and will buy hard copy to refer to much in the future. Thank you.

    "An absolutely must read for all parents with boys!"

    Great advise and phenomenal tips for all stages of my son's life. Thank you for putting together such a remarkable work of art. Especially impressed by how you guys touched on all subjects, even the very uncomfortable ones. Thanks to you, I will not be shocked by a couple of approaching mile stones and hope too be better prepared to let go and accept all of his facets.

    "Yes!"

    Hands down recommend for anyone with boys. I was raised in a family with 4 girls and no close male relatives other than my dad. His methods of parenting go right along with ours. They recommend love and logic which is good for younger children but I think no drama discipline would be my first recommendation over that. Thanks for all the good info. Looking forward to checking out your other books.

    "Joy and wonder"

    There is so much joy in raising a boy! I had completely lost sight of that as we dealt with our daily struggles. Thanks to Wild Things, I not only understand my boy much better, I also appreciate all the wonders of his crazy, hectic, messy boyhood so much more. Listening to the audio version in the car, I couldn't wait to get home to see my boy, where before I would be a little anxious of what new challenges my boy had for us each day. This book had so much valuable insight that I just had to buy the printed version as well. I will go back and highlight and bookmark many parts of it. This book is for everyone who has a boy in their lives, not just parents.

    "must read"

    I'm pregnant with a little boy and found this very useful. I also found it useful for understanding my husband better. I will be recommending that my husband read this as well as many of my friends.
