Raising Boys in the 21st Century
First published in 1995, Raising Boys was an instant bestseller and to date has sold over a million copies worldwide. Few books have stayed in the hearts and minds of parents everywhere as much as Raising Boys. Now in an increasingly complicated and nuanced world, raising boys to become emotionally strong, kind and resilient men is even more important and relevant. In response to calls from parents around the world Steve Biddulph has completely updated and revised his seminal work to include all the latest international information and advice for parents on all the key issues of today such as :
Brain and hormonal development including latest findings on testostetrone
Boys and crying
Boys and ‘bad’ behaviour
Reading and communication
Countering the effects of porn
‘Right now, the world badly needs good men. Your boy can be one of those who grow up so much better, and help to heal the world. Thank you for joining the boy revolution. As the 21st century rolls on, it’s badly needed. Enjoy your boy, love him well, and set him free to fly in his own special way.’
This book just make such sense (and has the science and psychology) to back it. This is not just a book about raising boys, it is a book about raising happy, openhearted, strong, resilient children. This book is a boon to all parents, grandparents, carers, teachers and anyone who has social interaction with boys. Read, listen, grow.
I have a copy of the original and it has been invaluable.
This was eye opening for me
