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've been implementing many of the suggestions in the book and can already see a change. His dad has now been talking to him about what it really means to be a man and we've been recently watching movies and reading books about righteous men. I particularly have enjoyed discussing the list in the book of real sport heroes who have helped people to counter all the violent athletes that my son has been exposed to in the media. At Dr. Zeff's suggestion, we have now started volunteering in a nursing home so that my son will learn compassion for older people.
If more people implemented Dr. Zeff's suggestions, we would live in a less violent world.
