Summary:

In Boys Should Be Boys, one of our most trusted authorities helps parents restore the delights of boyhood and enable today's boys to become the mature, confident, and thoughtful men of tomorrow. Boys will always be boys-rambunctious, adventurous, and curious, climbing trees, building forts, playing tackle football, and pushing their growing bodies to the limit as part of the rite of passage into manhood. But today our sons face an increasingly hostile world that doesn't value the high-spirited, magical nature of boys. In a collective call to let our boys be boys, Dr. Meg Meeker explores the secrets to boyhood, including
-why rules and boundaries are crucial-and why boys feel lost without them
-how the great outdoors is still the best playground, offering the sense of adventure that only Mother Nature can provide
-the essential ways to preserve a boy's innocence-and help him grow up
-the pitfalls moms and dads face when talking to their sons
-why moody and rebellious boys are not normal-and how to address such behavior
-how and when the "big" questions in life should be discussed: why he is here, what his purpose is, and why he is important
Parents are blessed with intuition and heart, but raising sons is a daunting responsibility. This uplifting guide makes the job a little easier.

    I finally found it. This is the single most valuable parenting book that I've read to help with the struggles I sometimes face with my son. I've read other books that I thought were pretty valuable, but this one is more valuable than all of those combined. My husband is reading it, too, and can relate with what it says. Bonus: It's helping me understand men in general! Some might not like everything in the book, but I'm confident every mother, father, caregiver, teacher, grandparent, etc. could find at least some very priceless advice.
