Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
On the positive side, this book is a checklist of fairly obvious parenting issues with boys. It also offers a long list of bromides. Examples from the 200 recommendations in this list are: Be yourself [as a parent, I suppose]; Don't tease [mixed messages are hard to decode]. Some recommendations are better than others, e.g., Stop the glorification of violence. Some of the "quotes" from men look so canned that they seem to have been made up.
On the negative side, this book addresses only peripherally emotional intelligence, which is something it said it would help you raise. For instance, the authors say very little about boys regulating and coping with emotions, their expressive behavior, or relationship building. In addition, the authors say nothing about ethical values which are meant to be part of emotional intelligence. After all, con men have emotional intelligence: they read their mark carefully. The difference is that their behavior is divorced from ethics.
Too bad.
This is a companion book from the same publisher about girls' self-esteem. Parents might find that book relatively more helpful.

"200 Ways to Raise a Boy's Emotional Intelligence: An Indispensible Guide for Parents, Teachers & Other Concerned Caregivers" is a very advisable guide for those who are daily dealing with the challenges in raising and educating boys. Its authors have sucessfully achieved to write a book that contains practical suggestions for those interested in growing boys' skills and avoiding future deficiencies. In a world where it is becoming each time more difficult to prepare kids towards the outside challenges, this is a helpful guide that can, if followed its suggestions, bring additional advantages than those who relate to boys' traditional education. A real must-have for parents and teachers!

This book should go into reprint. The contents are well-written, and vitally-important for these times where males are becoming more seriously violently at younger and younger ages.

This book is FANTASTIC! When trying to navigate the issues of masculinity/sensitivity, sometimes it's challenging to know which way to lean and/or what to encourage. I'm a mother of two boys with very different personalities. This book tackles so many of the questions and concerns I have. So many of us are trying to be effective, loving parents. We want to provide love, guidance and discipline, among other things. This book answers so many questions, and has specific tips for both parents and teachers at the end of each section. This would make a great gift for any mother, father, teacher or caregiver of boys.
