What are little boys made of? It used to be frogs, snails, and puppy dog tails, but today it is MTV, ADD, and STDs. So how do parents raise their sons to be respectful and responsible young men despite a toxic culture that relentlessly undermines masculine virtues such as moral strength, self-restraint, and respect for women? By letting boys be boys. Dr. Meg Meeker, bestselling author of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters, follows up on her success with Boys Should Be Boys-a guide for parents on how to raise a strong son in these turbulent times. Taking readers on a journey from boyhood to manhood, Boys Should Be Boys delves into the mind, heart, and sprit of boys, showing parents how they can make a difference between the boy their son is and the man he will become.

Professional reviews

"Pam Ward reads this illuminating guide with gravitas. Her performance works, if somewhat conspicuously, to drive home the point that boys need careful parenting to become functional, integrated, and fulfilled men. Boys must do all the dangerous and obnoxious things they like to do but should be supported nonetheless. They need to have their strengths recognized, so they can approach the challenges of manhood with confidence, not shame. These helpful insights are nuanced and arresting, especially when compared to popular views that oversimplify and demonize boys. This is a comprehensive and intelligent resource for parents who feel insecure about their sons, their parenting, or both. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
