THE book on bringing up boys. Essential reading for parents.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Raising Boys: Why Boys are Different - and How to Help Them Become Happy and Well-Balanced Men (Paperback)
A friend of the family who had successfully raised girl after girl with admirable tranquility then had two boys. After a couple of years, she plaintively -- and exhaustedly -- complained: "You know, they run UP walls!"
Bringing up children is never easy -- though ALWAYS rewarding. Bringing up boys does pose special challenges. Like it or not, boys are different.
Stephen Biddulph is a rare breed. An expert who speaks in simple language and goes straight to the heart of the problem. No jargon, no "new-age guru" speak here. Just solid, enlightening advice.
If you have boys, buy this book. And just one warning. Biddulp reveals that after 14, it can be too late to build those lasting channels of communication between parent and child. So don't delay, buy it today!
(Oh, just in case you were wondering, I have absolutely no financial incentive linked to sales of this book. I wish!)
