Here's sensible advice and caring encouragement on raising boys from the nation's most trusted parenting authority, Dr. James Dobson. With so much confusion about the role of men in our society, it's no wonder so many parents and teachers are asking questions about how to bring up boys. Why are so many boys in crisis? What qualities should we be trying to instill in young males? Our culture has vilified masculinity and, as a result, an entire generation of boys is growing up without a clear idea of what it means to be a man.In the runaway bestseller Bringing Up Boys , Dr. Dobson draws from his experience as a child psychologist and family counselor, as well as extensive research, to offer advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles.

He definitely makes some good points in this book about the importance and the need for turning our boys into great men. Unfortunately its something that is undervalued in this day and age..And we so desperately need good male leaders for the future families of our country.
