Publisher's Summary

Have you wondered if you're making the right decisions when it comes to raising your son? Over the last years, there has been a lot of confusion about the role of boys and men in our society. It's easy to see why parents are left with lots of unanswered questions when they're raising their sons.

Raising boys the right way through positive parenting can help them become responsible and balanced teenagers and adults. Here's some of what you can expect to learn in this audiobook:

  • Learn how to avoid common mistakes that parents make that can end up harming their sons long-term
  • Learn how to teach proper conduct at home the right way, saving yourself countless headaches
  • Discover how to teach important values such as empathy and gratefulness
  • Caring for your boy's emotional and mental state
  • The most common challenges when raising boys and how to easily overcome them

Would you like to enjoy going through every stage of your sons life without worrying if you're doing the right thing or not? The earlier you manage to give proper guidance, the easier it is for a child to grow into a healthier person. However, there is no such thing as being too late, and even the most damaging of behaviors and habits can be helped.

Do not leave anything to chance. Start by guiding your son towards the best possible path towards a healthy and responsible adulthood today!

A Grand Generalization

No specific content or references. Book admits to being broadly generalized. Can pass on the message of the book in one sentence: Be there for him and spend time with him. Really nothing irrelevant to raising girls.

Not the Steve Biddulph book of the same title

This is a misleading book and Audible should remove it from their catalogue. Not only is it NOT the Steve Biddulph book, it means I’ve spent an Audible credit in a 38 minute book. That’s a rip off. Do not buy this book unless you’re in search of the kind of platitudes you can find for free on Pinterest.

Sound Advice

This book provided clear, sound advice but was fairly basic. Many chapters could have provided examples rather than referring the reader to do their own internet research.

common sense

Very obvious basic parenting 101....thought there may have been more that was specific to raising boys verses children...regardless of gender

Basic manners

I can’t believe this book has done so well. It’s just common sense with some good old fashioned manners. It might suit parents who didn’t have good upbringings and learn the basics. But I would tell all the parents i know not to waste their time.

To make it worse the narrator has the most annoying voice!

i made it to chapter 7

This is a great book if your looking for an instructional guide on being a helicopter parent, or a guilt trip for things you may have done in the past.

Pointless Drivel

Don't waste your time or money. This book spends 3-4 hours saying virtually nothing. What is does say is patently obvious (spend time with your child) and trite. Wasted a credit.

A good starting point

The book is more of an overview than an in-depth analysis, finished it on a walk.

Great Resource for Parenting Boys

The book devotes entire chapters to what a boy will learn from both his mother and his father, which I thought was very interesting. This makes it so clear why it is important for a son to have both a mother and a father in his life. Another chapter discusses the differences between how boys develop and how girls develop. This book discusses how to create a Biblical journey for your son from child to man, and I think it is a great resource for any parent who desires to raise their boys into men of God.

not quite as the title suggested

I found this book to be quite generic and based around simple partnering strategies as opposed to it being focused on raising boys, not quite what I was after but if your looking for some simple techniques it may be useful.

interesting book

Best book I have listened to this year. I am not sure why the description did not really draw me to this book before but so glad I eventually gave in to curiosity. Very much interested to listen to it.

highly recommended!!

I bought this book because I have two wonderful boys and want as much wisdom as i can get to raise them. This books teaches much on how the world systems has been built to destroy who God intended them to be. It opened my eyes to be more vigilant. I am hopeful that my son's will be all God has intended.

Fanastic book

Just started listening to this audiobook and I'm very excited to start learning. I purchased another book in the past that I did not like. The information was very hard and I just lost interest.This book seems to focus on simple information.
