2.0 out of 5 stars A never-ending Monday October 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book hoping that it would address the question of whether it is true that not having a father is as bad for a boy as our society likes to tell us. Recent research shows that the economic factors have much more to do with the boys' failure to thrive when raised by a single mother. Consequently, a competent mother with the right resources can be just as good if not better at raising a boy than two parents in a less-than-happy partnership. Although the author of this book attempts to cheer on the single moms she writes for, the tone of the book suggests that a single mother has many weaknesses to compensate for. But it is always better, I think, to act out of one's strengths instead of forever trying to identify and compensate weaknesses. This book has a disheartening undertow to its flow. I also think that its long chapter on the innate biological differences between boys and girls makes too big a deal out of them. A single mother needs to know that the society's preconceptions against fatherless boys are just as likely to hamper their success as anything else. I am still looking for a book that would do the hard thinking about the real needs of children, in traditional and less so families.

5.0 out of 5 stars a parenting book that gets it right December 27, 2009
Format:Paperback
What a beautiful book! The Single Mother's Guide to Raising Remarkable Boys is one of the finest new parenting books that I have seen in a while. The balanced and accurate summary of parenting research is a breath of fresh air. The advice is sensible and well grounded in both research and the experiences of parents. The affirmation of single mothers and the wonderful children they raise is overdue. An engaging writing style also makes the book a good read.

The Single Mother's Guide to Raising Remarkable Boys resonated with me both professionally and personally. Professionally, I have three advanced degrees in behavioral sciences and most of my research has involved parenting and child development. On a personal note, my own mother raised three boys and two girls as a single mother for many years. From both the professional and personal perspectives I must say that these authors got it right!

I can't think of any parent who wouldn't benefit from the view of parenthood presented here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, Relevant & Very Helpful July 16, 2008
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book and the title tells you exactly where the author excels. Written for busy, stressed-out single mothers who are trying to understand (?) and raise boys --- this book is hugely helpful.

After a long time when there didn't seem to be any books for us single moms --- now there is hope. I highly recommend this book to any woman who is raising sons, especially pre-adolescents or adolescents.

I also recommend the book listed below, which is here on Amazon too.

1.0 out of 5 stars ok February 7, 2013
By anon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an ok attempt to help out single moms. Seems more like a check the block attempt to find something to sell books about. This is information most single moms are probably already doing as a means of simply surviving. No real insight that experience hasn't already taught.
