Editorial Reviews

Review

"Proven techniques to help parents raise their son to express his emotions and develop compassionate behavior, and specific strategies that will help boys to navigate through the violent boy culture."
-Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys


"I met Ted Zeff when we both worked with youth in San Francisco 30 years ago. He was a great counselor then and now he is even a greater counselor and writer. His insights into raising young men are what is needed now. Trust me, I have been all over the United States making documentaries for PBS on reducing violence in schools. I implore you to listen to his excellent suggestions to raise compassionate, non-violent boys. He's right on."
-Mike Pritchard, Host of PBS Documentary Save Our Schools from Hate and Violence and Stepping on Up


"Ted Zeff has provided everyone who cares about kids with an excellent road map to get us closer to a society where our boys become more fully human, more emotionally intelligent. That would mean a world of men better able to protect the planet and the next generation from the kind of emotionally disconnected aggression that threatens us all."
-James Garbarino, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Loyola University Chicago, and author of Lost Boys


"Raise an Emotionally Healthy Boy is a boon for our entire planet. The book provides many original, practical ideas for parents and teachers to help boys grow into compassionate and emotionally healthy men who can transcend male violent behavior. Give a copy to everyone you know who is helping to raise a boy."
-Elaine Aron, Ph.D., author of The Highly Sensitive Child

Format: Paperback
As a mother, I do my best to severely limit and shield my son's exposure to all the violence on television, in video games, at the movies and in the news with the all too frequent school shootings. However, as he is now in school I am very concerned about the exposure I cannot control. Dr. Zeff's book is the perfect antidote to the violent culture that our boys are exposed to. He shows parents, step-by-step, how to raise a compassionate boy who can express his true feelings and navigate through the violent boy culture.

The book begins with well-researched information about why it's difficult for boys to express empathy and their emotions, and why they frequently repress their feelings. Dr. Zeff then offers many suggestions how Mom and Dad can encourage their son to express his true feelings and how he can maneuver through the violent boy culture. He offers great tips for teachers to create a positive, caring classroom environment for boys, as well as help for parents to teach their sons how to create healthy male friendships and good sportsmanship. There is a special section on how to deal with the teenage boy. This book is truly a godsend. Every parent, teacher and mentor of a boy should read this book!

-A caring Mom

I am a mom of two boys, ages 14 and 8. Even though at home I have always encouraged my boys to be compassionate and nonviolent, I have been at a loss as to how to protect them from the violent side of "boy culture." I am concerned when they go visit their friends, where they can be exposed to playing violent video games, and when they have to interact with some of the tough, macho boys in the neighborhood. Dr. Zeff's book has been a godsend with many practical suggestions for how my boys can navigate through the violent boy culture while still remaining caring boys. I highly recommend this book!
