Editorial Reviews

Review

"With two young sons of our own, Jean and I can certainly attest to the challenges raising boys can bring! Dannah and Bob offer parents a fascinating look into the development of tween and teen boys, as well as a wealth of practical, hands-on musts for successfully connecting with them. Learn the ‘how-to's' for building and strengthening parent/son relationships and guiding young men toward a purposeful, God-honoring adulthood."
--Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family


"Every mom wants her little boy to grow to be a caring and courageous man. The truth is, she can either be his ally on that journey to manhood, or she can hinder his progress. Thankfully, Dannah Gresh has sound, practical wisdom for moms who want their sons to be the men God made them to be."
--Bob Lepine, co-host of FamilyLife Today


"Almost every single day I ask the Lord to make me a better mom to my four children. Books like this one feel like an answer to prayer. Dannah Gresh has done a fabulous job addressing many of the issues that concern our boys. I highly recommend her insights, biblical instruction, and practical mom application. These pages are marching orders! It's time to fight for the good in our boys!"
--Angela Thomas, bestselling author and speaker


"Boy oh boy! Bob and Dannah Gresh have written a great book for parents of sons. I know. I have three of my own. And I wish I would have had a resource like this when they were young. Six Ways to Keep the ‘Good' in Your Boy provides valuable information and points out positive ways to channel all that testosterone-induced male energy. If you have a boy, this is a book you must read!"
--Mary A. Kassian, author, Girls Gone Wise

(Wife reviewing this book!) The GOOD: I will take a lot from this read, particularly the breakdown on pg. 63, "The Phase chart". Great resource & chapter regarding how raise, then guide, our sons at various stages of their receptiveness. Also, the breakdown of appropriate conversations to have about purity & at what ages to start this (roughly between age 7 through 9) was insightful. On pg. 178, the "How far will you go?" chart is a great resource when talking about purity, sex & alike subjects & subjects alike. This read stresses the importance of leading a Godly life within your kids, & the significance of raising a well-adjusted leader & gentleman despite the defeminization of our boys today, all of which I totally stand behind. & unstructured play, getting them outside in games of tag even with the risk of an occasional scuff or broken bone; this is necessary for self-regulation & decision making as they grow into adults. Many parts of this book hit home, it made us as parents (yes, we both read it!) come to terms with even some of our favorite pastime shows. Modern Family comes to mind! I really liked the Scriptures to pray over our son at the end of each chapter. This is really filled with ways to be a better parent, not just raising a gentleman.

The NOT SO GOOD: The tone was not to my taste & some of the subjects questionable. I felt the approach a little sheltered & close-minded. Things like not just avoiding masturbation & sex, but going to the extent of writing up a contract in which one promises to live a life of sexual purity, then framing it & hanging it next to your son's bed, I feel is objectionable. Also, hyper-scheduling my son's daily activities, including his screen time (TV, video & computer) is also something we are going to have to pass on.

In today's world... bringing up children can be scary! Is there hope?
Can I raise a godly child? How do I keep them "good"?

This book was just what I needed! With a son who is seven going on eight...
I am looking for some serious HELP!! I only have one boy, but he certainly thinks and acts completely different then my girls. Dannah Gresh covers all things related to boys in her book. Subjects I am not even comfortable talking about (LOL) but obviously need to learn about to be able to relate to this little man I am raising. She talks about our fears as moms, our boy's need to connect, the best age(s) to connect to them. She deals with testosterone, puberty, and how their brains work. The first part of the book is on connecting about how to connect to them, the second part deals with the six ways to keep them "good".

This is a must read for both mom and dad of tween boys, although the book is geared mostly to mom's. Dannah's husband has added quite a few tidbits of information from a man's point of view, and also a friend of hers has added information for those single parent mom's who are doing this alone. I have learned sooo much, I cannot stress enough how valuable this book has been to me.

Like most of the books out there supposedly to help parents raise their children in a Godly manner, this one too caters to those who have a close extended family where everybody gets along, as well as very ideal conditions (especially money-wise to go all the places or places like them that are suggested.) I am glad for these parents that God has blessed them so much and that what they did worked for them with their grown son. Of course, please realize he is now in his 20's and the world is VERY different now than it was just 20 years ago. Not all of us have the luxury to live in neighborhoods where we are surrounded by churchgoing folk, nor are the places we live necessarily safe for our children to be let loose in. This isn't the 1950's---the reality is there are very few places for kids anymore and not all of us can afford to keep taking our children out-of-town and on excursions. Some of us are the working poor---we don't have attics, basements, a yard, let alone rent or own a house....Some of us are barely making it and need some solid realistic advice that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. The thought of my husband taking our son to a Sportsbar to have some wings to bond with him is not my idea of keeping our son's eyes pure---something the book supposedly is all for. Have you been in a Sportsbar recently? TV's galore with objectionable commercials and images as well as waitresses who dress immodestly. Sorry, not everybody "loves wings" nor does every woman "love to buy a pair of shoes"... These generalizations don't help the book much and the constant back-and-forth writing and interjecting of the author's self-professed ADD husband don't add any appeal to the book.Read more ›

I'm a single mom and know very little on how to properly handle some subjects with boys. My son just turned 12 and I'm loving this book. It's helping me feel more confident about the talks I have with him and how to raise him with good morals, without just having to say "because I said so" (when he asks "why" on certain things).
I love the examples and reasons and true life stories. I feel much more secure in my beliefs and how to express them to him, without "pushing" them on him. I wish I would have started this at least a year ago but it's still a good time in his life to discuss it.
DON'T WAIT to read this!!!!
