Publisher's Summary

Dave Willis, author, speaker, and father of four boys, talks biblically and practically about how to raise a generation of boys who are champions, encouragers, and respecters of women.

In the #metoo and #churchtoo era, with so many men and boys continuing to make the same mistakes, we have to ask: Where are we going wrong? And perhaps more importantly, how do we raise up men who will break this cycle?

As the father of four boys, relationship coach and author Dave Willis has studied this issue deeply, concluding that if we are to raise boys to respect girls - and not end up with men who say they respect women but whose actions reveal otherwise - we must go back to the heart of things. Or, more specifically, we must go back to our own hearts.

In Raising Boys Who Respect Girls, Willis helps listeners inventory the blind spots that lead to accidental forms of disrespect, showing how to root out issues in our own hearts before we inadvertently pass along these same issues to our boys. He also teaches listeners how to cultivate a healthy respect for God and for themselves as created in his image, as well as a similar respect for others. Full of Scripture, research, age-specific tools, and conversation models, this audiobook offers a practical strategy for mindful parents to first embody the right principles themselves and then teach them to their sons.

No real practical advice and sexists undertones

Author spent this entire book redundantly saying that "boys should give women the respect that they deserve" yet offered no real advice on how to do this. And sounds like his four sons are still young adults/teenagers. So how does he even know if his approach is working? And what is his approach exactly? The only real concrete advice that he gives is to lead by example with a strong, respectful marriage. Nothing revolutionary there. He states the obvious.

I also found parts of the book a little upsetting and with sexists undertones. At the end of the chapters, he often quoted "real life" women. At the end chapter 8, he quoted one woman saying "I like when I am treated with equality by males even though I am a female." uhhhh wait a second here... "Even though"?! That's implying that this woman feels inferior yet is happy when men treat her as an equal despite that. I felt some sexists undertones throughout this whole book, and the use of this quote solidified that.

Giving two stars, instead of one, because I appreciate that he approached this topic when most men would shy away from it.
