Raising boys

£2.00

Product description

Britain's no. 1 favourite childcare author and family therapist, Steve Biddulph's classic million copy bestseller Boys need to be parented in a different way from girls with their own very special psychological and physical make-up. Home, society and education have failed boys badly - and these failures lead to unhappy men who cannot fully become happy, responsible, emotionally-confident adults. It is essential that boys spend more time learning about manhood from their fathers. And through the teen years a boy ideally needs a male mentor outside his immediate family to teach him the best way to live. Without these things boys can turn to alcohol, drugs and despair and fail to grow up into feeling, responsible adults. A book which gives good advice on: the stages of boyhood; how a mother teaches about life and love; how schools need to change to be made a good place for boys; testosterone and how it changes behaviour; how to be a good father; how to teach boys to have a caring attitude to girls and about sex.
