Great book that emphases the importance of the mothers influence in teaching them about love and what it means to be love until 6 years of age. Thereafter the important role fathers play in providing a role model for the boy until the age of 13. Thereafter the important role mentors play in the boys development. Great read for first time mom and dads.
An excellent book detailing how and why boys are different to girls, and what that means for the way they should be raised. Boyhood is divided into three broad sections: 1. birth to six, when their mother is the centre of their world, 2. six to fourteen, when their father takes the limelight, and 3. fourteen to adult, when male role models come to the fore. I found the discussions very balanced, not overemphasising the differences, simply acknowledging that most boys will be more (various characteristics) than most girls. I would recommend this book to parents of boys, but also to anyone working with boys, particularly those men in the position of role model.
