Publisher's Summary

With so much confusion about the role of men in our society, it's no wonder so many parents and teachers are at a loss about how to bring up boys. Our culture has vilified masculinity, and as a result boys are suffering. Parents, teachers, and others involved in shaping the character of boys have many questions. In Bringing Up Boys, Dr. James Dobson, America's most trusted authority on family issues, tackles these questions and offers advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles. Bringing Up Boys is a must-read book for parents, teachers, social workers, youth leaders, and counselors--anyone involved in the challenge of turning boys into good men.

    "Great book"

    Having an energetic young boy, this books helped me see how wonderfully normal he is despite what others say! We have held our ground to not squash our son's beautiful spirit that will make him a successful and healthy man someday! Definitely read this book if you have a boy who began climbing the furniture as soon as he could walk!!

    "Good advice"

    This book is full of great and practical advice. So often we think we are doing our kids a favour by giving in to certain things, when in reality we are making the wrong decision. I wish I had read this book ten years ago; however, I can still use many of these principles now in my pre-teen.
    Great book that opened my eyes to so many things! Thank-you Dr. Dobson!

    "Didn't really have any useful info"

    Got about a third of the way through before I stopped. Nothing really useful in the book. Unless it's surprising to you that kids need their dads and a stable home life. I don't disagree with that, I just don't like paying money for rhetoric.

    "Outdated"
    What disappointed you about Bringing Up Boys?

    I found this, first off dry and second, outdated.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not anything by Dobson


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for books on kids look at Danny Silks, "Loving Your Kids on Purpose".

    "Great knowledgeable resource"

    I enjoyed learning about raising children in today's society and found myself applying this knowledge immediately in life and in my classroom.

    Relevant, accurate, and honest, this book clearly shows what boys are up against in this day and age, and how we as parents should help them overcome these challenges. A great read!

    "Too "conservative" for my taste. Some good remind"

    Too "conservative" for my taste. Some good reminders on the differences between boys and girls, but the author gets way too much into the impacts of society and all of the problem a lesbian, to make me pay too much attention. North
