Description

Michael C. Reichert draws on his thirty years of experience researching the process by which boys become men to provide a roadmap for parents and educators who hope to help the boys they love and care about grow into strong, emotionally intelligent, and compassionate men. In this groundbreaking book, a leading psychologist and researcher of the journey from boyhood to manhood reveals the vital role that parents, teachers, coaches and other adult role models can play in creating a "safety net" for boys so that they can develop in positive ways, both emotionally and socially. With the groundbreaking Real Boys in 1998, William Pollack inaugurated a wave of books that challenged age-old conventions about how boys become men. Over the last twenty years, an explosion of new studies has expanded our knowledge about how boys think and feel. Yet parents express more anxiety than ever about raising sons. In recent studies, expecting parents say they prefer having a girl by more than two to one. Parents' angst reflects both the shifting sands of the female world and the understanding that old paradigms, however they are repackaged or updated, alone will not lead to their sons' success. A new boyhood is called for--and parents, teachers and others are desperately looking for direction. The New Boyhood provides those who care for young men ages 10-18 with the latest insights from psychology and neuroscience to give us the tools to help build good men.
