Publisher's Description

Boy #1 is a blessing. Boy #2 is a joy. But what happens with boy #3? And what if there is a #4? Or more? Suddenly, Mom is outnumbered. Throw Dad into the mix, and you have enough testosterone to chase Mom out the front door and keep her on the run from dawn to dusk.

A father can tell you a lot about raising boys. Researchers and psychologists can give you a lot of statistics and advice. Other parenting books can generalize. But only a mom of all boys can really explain what life is like when you are surrounded by men. From one "boy-mom" to another, I'm Outnumbered offers sound advice and encouragement for every mom who has more than one son, even if there's a girl in the mix. Author Laura Lee Groves has raised four redheaded boys and has lived-in fact loves-to tell about it. Her strategy of intentional parenting (guiding moms to see their role as proactive parents) has been gleaned from her own experience, from other boy-moms, and from parenting experts. Her combination of personal anecdotes and authoritative research will show boy-moms how to
handle sibling rivalry foster leadership and teamwork combat conflict stay organized love them unconditionally and much more

Laced with touching and humorous stories, this practical manual provides encouragement, inspiration, and information-especially for the outnumbered mom.

    I was really excited to get this book in the mail and picked it up to read. i was laughing as I was reading! not only am I also a mom of four sons like the author, my oldest was severely colicky and I could so commiserate with her as she got it so right. This mom offers advice to the mom of boys right where you need it. I have never read such a great book on this subject. It is straight forward, to the point and covers all kinds of topics. My favorite chapter was "Boy Talk" on how to teach your son the proper way to communicate. She gives tips so that you can teach your son not to be "the strong silent type", so your future daughter in laws will thank you. Other chapters touch on working with boys personalities and teaching them to be organized, keeping them busy, keeping the electronic usage down. She has feedback from her sons, some of which are grown on her methods, which was really helpful. There is also an appendix in the back for husband's of wives with all boys. It is full of tips of how to help your wife_from understanding boys to helping them with organizing. There is another appendix for single moms, which I found so thoughtful. This author throughly covered this topic, without being overwhelming or wordy! This would be a book I would give at a baby shower where the mom is having a multiple boy as it is that good!

    Honestly, mothering boys is quite different from mothering girls. I have two sons and three daughters. I know. While boys and girls have many of the same needs they also just plain think differently, act differently and respond differently to the same situation. And that is perfectly fine and perfectly healthy. The goal is to learn how to best parent and love both sons and daughters. This book is a great first step in the right direction.

    While reading Groves' book I found myself imagining myself sitting down over a cup of tea talking to an older, more experienced mother imparting some of her hard-earned wisdom. Her book draws not only from her own experiences raising four sons to adulthood, but also from her own reading and research and is strengthened with frequent Scriptural references. Over the past week, I have been reflecting over many of Groves' thoughts and considering which suggestions to implement within my own household.

    My favorite chapters are "Intentional Parenting," which focuses on how to inspire, nurture and pray for your son; "Boy Talk," which encourages mothers to talk to their sons and gives specific suggestions to draw out more verbally reserved sons (of which I have one!); and "The Big O's--Order and Organization"--which offers many helpful organizational tips along with an understanding of why boys need to learn these skills.

    Three appendices offer additional help: encouraging mom and dad to work together as a team in parenting boys; a five page bibliography broken down into specific "boy" topics; and an appendix for single mothers. I found this a well-written, encouraging book on the topic of parenting boys, and I plan to re-read and refer to it later.
