Summary

Have you wondered if you're making the right decisions when it comes to raising your son? Over the last years, there has been a lot of confusion about the role of boys and men in our society. It's easy to see why parents are left with lots of unanswered questions when they're raising their sons.

Raising boys the right way through positive parenting can help them become responsible and balanced teenagers and adults. Here's some of what you can expect to learn in this audiobook:

  • Learn how to avoid common mistakes that parents make that can end up harming their sons long-term
  • Learn how to teach proper conduct at home the right way, saving yourself countless headaches
  • Discover how to teach important values such as empathy and gratefulness
  • Caring for your boy's emotional and mental state
  • The most common challenges when raising boys and how to easily overcome them

Would you like to enjoy going through every stage of your sons life without worrying if you're doing the right thing or not? The earlier you manage to give proper guidance, the easier it is for a child to grow into a healthier person. However, there is no such thing as being too late, and even the most damaging of behaviors and habits can be helped.

Do not leave anything to chance. Start by guiding your son towards the best possible path towards a healthy and responsible adulthood today!

Sexist with useless sweeping generalisations

As a gender studies academic, I found the lack of actual science and rigour in this book in favour of sweeping generalisations, stereotypes and lazy thinking is shocking and sad. Potentially doing more harm than good via the above combined with parental shaming and scare tactics, I’d say AVOID.

Thank you for this audiobook!

This audiobook gives a basic look into the human brain, but most important how it applies to a growing brain. I only wish I listen this before having my children. I appreciate that this is a science based audiobook, and just as with all other things, I will take what applies to me and practice what I feel is most right for my family and children. In fact the authors encourage this. They don’t try to push their findings on anyone. Thank you for this audiobook!

This is a phenomenal listen.

This is a phenomenal listen. While it is incredibly challenging it helps foster a mindset that is beneficial for a developing mind. Even as a teacher I think this is a useful resource for developing better skills to manage the classroom.

I absolutely loved this audiobook

I realized that my kids weren’t acting the way I wanted them to because I wasn’t communicating to them the way I should have been. I absolutely loved this audiobook and all the examples of how to deal with certain types of situations.

Fantastic audiobook.

Fantastic audiobook. If you are searching for a brain based guide to raising your boys, this is the audiobook to purchase. I was initially hesitant to purchase this audiobook as the title was somewhat off-putting, but I quickly learned what the others mean when they say "discipline". It means, "to teach". Wonderful audiobook. Highly recommend it, and I've listen most of the other popular parenting audiobooks on the market.

Don't knock it until you try it.

Don't knock it until you try it. There will be those who will stubbornly close their hearts to the instruction and guidance but for those who choose to accept the help, the transformation is remarkable.

Great

A great parenting audiobook with so many useful tools. I think I need to re-listen this audiobook because it was chalk full of great parenting ideas. I will have to retrain myself as a parent to raise my boys a little better.
