Book Description

March 6, 2006

Warm and fuzzy, anchored in values, and filled with simple words of wisdom, this beloved, bestselling book for parents speaks to the important business of raising sons, and distills their timeless lessons into one nugget of wisdom per page—some lighthearted, some serious, some practical, and some intangible, and all supported by a strong moral backbone.


Freshly updated, the book begins with the Five Keys of Parenting, a guide to navigating the extraordinary, even if sometimes exasperating, journey of parenthood. It’s filled with the importance of nurturing responsibility: Teach him that the world will judge him by his actions, not his intentions. Fun stuff: Have tea with him in the afternoons. Serve cookies. And when he’s ready to go: Hug him fiercely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quickly Add This to Your Library May 10, 2006
Format:Paperback
Having devoured every page of the Harrisons' Mother to Daughter book, I was eager to discover what wisdom lay in their newest volume. I wasn't disappointed! Again, this little gem is filled with wise counsel -- this time for mothers of boys of any age. The authors' economy of words, their humor and insight, is never cliche. I recognized myself and my own sons in its pages and appreciate the opportunity to better prepare for our oldest son's new adventure in college. It's great reading for "taxi-ing" times -- I carry my copy in my car -- and is a wonderful tool for opening dialogue with our sons. Fun to read and most profound, all in one terrific package!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! I keep it in my purse :-) September 13, 2011
Format:Paperback
My husband bought the Father to Son book the week our son was born, and we've both enjoyed it.
Seeing this on the bookstore shelf last month I realized I needed this for additional private heart-felt smiles in my life.
(son: currently 11 months old & we're hoping he gets a younger sibling soon)

This book helps me treasure those mommy-hug moments and reassure myself that working outside the house is ok, our family experiences joy & love, and we can strengthen each other if we focus on it!

"Realize that from day one, he's wired to be self-reliant. Don't change that."
"Relax. Throwing food is normal. Heck, throw it back."
"His tears will break your heart. So will his smiles."
"Enjoy his bath time. He certainly will."

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable Anecdotes September 26, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I saw this book in a gift shop while on vacation and purchased it for my nearly-due sister-in-law. I loved it so much, that I returned to amazon when I got home and bought a copy for myself. Its a "must have" for mothers of little boys. A nice reminder of the important things, sure to bring a smile to your lips!
