“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

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. I believe in exampling a wholesome, God-fearing, healthy lifestyle for our young ones, striving to raise children of integrity & faith. I find over-killing the Bible & God's name in front our children & extreme (not to be mistaken with lack of!) supervision to be distasteful. Even from a Christian standpoint, this book teeters that fence.
All of this being said, overall I took more positive from this read than any negative! So, do not think for a second I wouldn't recommend any parent with sons to read & re-read this book. You be the judge!
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!!!!
