I've read this book almost twice now because it's got so much information to be able to grasp it all if read only once. It's such a wonderful book, I would recommend it to anyone that has a boy. It would explain a lot of what he does and what to expect next. As a mother of an active boy, I can tell you that it will help you relax and be more at ease knowing that what your boy is doing is what boys are meant to do, it's their nature, so just read on and enjoy this great book!
What a timely book for parents raising boys in a world that seems so hostile to characteristics that makes boys special! Our church has used the video presentation with great success. I have a supply on hand to give as gifts to parent(s)of boys.
Dr. James Dobson simply acknowledges the obvious: boys and girls are different. From that premise he develops an effective strategy for raising boys into dynamic Christians while meeting their specific emotional, social and physical needs. An expected twist to this book: it will help wives (and propsective wives) better understand their husbands. It will make an excellent wedding gift. Also recommended is Kenn Gividen's THE PRAYER OF HANNAH
