Publisher's Summary

Bringing chivalry back into our modern-day world, this book shows us how to inspire today's generation of young boys to pursue honor, courage, and compassion. 

In an age when respect and honor seem like distant and antiquated relics, how can we equip boys to pursue valor and courageously put the needs of others before their own? This book helps parents to inspire their boys by captivating their imagination and honoring their love for adventure. Heather Haupt explores how knights historically lived out various aspects of the knights' Code of Chivalry, as depicted in the French epic Song of Roland, and how boys can embody these same ideals now. When we issue the challenge and give boys the reasons why it is worth pursuing, we step forward on an incredible journey toward raising the kind of boys who, just like the knights of old, make an impact in their world now and for the rest of their lives. 

Bonus PDF included with Knights in Training resources and book recommendations.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Modern Knights Rescue Society

Where does Knights in Training rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

While I've listened to well over a hundred audio books, this book is unique, and cannot be compared to most that to which I have listened.

What other book might you compare Knights in Training to and why?

Boys Adrift. Knights in Training identifies many of the problems into which young manhood today has fallen, as does Boys Adrift. However, Knights in Training goes on to suggest a concise plan of action for parents dealing with those challenges.

Have you listened to any of Heather Haupt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not previously listened to another performance of Heather Haupt. I am not usually in favor of authors reading their own works, as a gifted writer does not necessarily translate into a gifted narrator, but Mrs. Haupt can both write and narrate well, and because of the passion she brings to the topic, she is the ideal narrator for Knights in Training.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction. It did make me laugh, having grown up in a family of boys, and now trying to raise a boy.

Any additional comments?

I strongly urge anyone raising boys to listen to or read this book. Most parents do not recognize the degree to which their boys are under fire from several sides. Consequently, boys and young men, and even some older ones, flounder in modern society. Heather advocates a revolution to restore to men, young and old, their societal value and dignity, and their prospects for personal happiness and fulfillment.

Thank you Heather. You have delivered a very timely antidote for some of the very serious ills currently plaguing our nation.

Worth the listen

While I may not follow actual Knight training, this book definitely gave me some great ideas or confirmed my personal teachings with my son. It has helped me change some of the ways I may talk to my son or ask him questions.

Boy moms be inspired in a doable way!

From the moment I started listening to this I just wanted to focus solely on it. I kept making bookmarks for my husband to listen to and for me to specifically remember certain bits. I've recommended it to every boy mom I know.
When I started reading this book I went into it with curiosity but feeling that I was reading just another boy mom book. But Heather's voice is just so personable. You can tell that these things she put into practice with her boys built her up instead of wearing her down with more to do. It made me get excited about stepping out in another boy adventure and as a mom with four boys I'm in the thick of it. I wanted to try it all. I kept telling my boys about what I was listening to and what I was excited about putting into practice with them. They would ask everyday if I had finished the knight book yet. We are all excited to start this adventure. It's been a wonderful change for our home... And it's not wearing me out! Thank you Heather.

Fun and interesting

A really good read. The application of the principles of chivalry in raising boys is a brilliant notion. I see this being a great tool to use with son as he's very fond of emulating heroes.

Not just for parents of boys!

Even though I have two girls, this was such a great book. While the implementation will look different, many of the principles outlined in this book apply to girls as well as boys. More importantly, it reminded me of some of the aspects of "boyhood" I need to teach my girls about such as allowing a boy to help you. (For an independent minded girl this is the last thing she wants!)

You are either raising modern day knights or the young maidens who will one day marry those knights. Let's raise an honorable generation!

Little boys to knights!

I have been praying for a fun, purposefully way in helping my son learn how to become a gentleman. I have 3 girls as well and this book has great ideas on helping them all to become the best they can in a playful way!
When I have expressed my concerns of raising "good" adults who fill their potential, I have been told to "just let them be kids". This is a great plan to help them rise up and become the person they are meant to be, and even help childhood to even be more magical!
Thank you Heather for sharing! I have shared this book with several friends and we have started using this in our homes and are working together to raise modern day nights.

Raising Boys Right

There are too many good points in the book to mention a favorite. It is worthwhile if you have boys to raise or just want to help someone raising theirs.
