Publisher's Description

When bestselling author Dannah Gresh was body-slammed by her 12-year-old son, she was hit with reality: raising a boy is a whole new ballgame!

A boy's relationship with his mom during the formative age between 8 and 12 is vital to his future well-being. So how can moms teach sons to be honest, confident, and respectful when the world and situations encourage them to make bad decisions and grow up too fast?

Dannah's practical experience and research, along with advice from her husband, Bob Gresh, provide a mom with six proactive ways to help her son:

  • honor his body in a healthy way
  • get outside to play unplugged
  • live out his faith

This accessible resource will empower moms with information and hope to raise sons of integrity and faith. Includes an insightful Connection IQ Inventory test, activity ideas, and Scriptures to pray over sons.

Editorial Reviews

"With two young sons of our own, Jean and I can certainly attest to the challenges raising boys can bring! Dannah and Bob offer parents a fascinating look into the development of tween and teen boys, as well as a wealth of practical, hands-on musts for successfully connecting with them. Learn the ‘how-to's' for building and strengthening parent/son relationships and guiding young men toward a purposeful, God-honoring adulthood."
--Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family

"Every mom wants her little boy to grow to be a caring and courageous man. The truth is, she can either be his ally on that journey to manhood, or she can hinder his progress. Thankfully, Dannah Gresh has sound, practical wisdom for moms who want their sons to be the men God made them to be."
--Bob Lepine, co-host of FamilyLife Today

"Almost every single day I ask the Lord to make me a better mom to my four children. Books like this one feel like an answer to prayer. Dannah Gresh has done a fabulous job addressing many of the issues that concern our boys. I highly recommend her insights, biblical instruction, and practical mom application. These pages are marching orders! It's time to fight for the good in our boys!"
--Angela Thomas, bestselling author and speaker

"Boy oh boy! Bob and Dannah Gresh have written a great book for parents of sons. I know. I have three of my own. And I wish I would have had a resource like this when they were young. Six Ways to Keep the ‘Good' in Your Boy provides valuable information and points out positive ways to channel all that testosterone-induced male energy. If you have a boy, this is a book you must read!"
--Mary A. Kassian, author, Girls Gone Wise

    The author gives Scripture and words of wisdom for parents of "tweens" and addresses the issues that are of much concern for Christian parents who want to raise children in the "nuture and admonition" of the Lord. It is a huge challenge protecting and teaching children to make right choices and view the world from a Biblical prespective. This book is an effective and helpful tool.

    This is one of the best books on raising boys that I have ever read. It covers everything I have wondered about. I'm so glad I read this book in time to change the way I am approaching some "becoming a man" topics. It also opened my eyes to see how the world is teaching my sons verses how God wants them to be.

    Six Ways to Keep the Good in Your Boy is more then just a book about parenting boys. This book is filled with ways to be a better parent as well as how to help your son grow up well adjusted.

    The author, Dannah Gresh and her husband, Bob Gresh, write this book to help parents understand their sons better. As boys grow older their needs change and parents have to learn how to meet those changing needs.

    The first part of the book is the informative part. It is about what makes a male a male. It helps explain why they react the way they do. It is helpful to understand this information before moving on to the real meat of the book that the title mentions, the six ways to help your son as he grows up.

    The first and easiest way is to make sure they get outside playtime. You may think that only little ones need this. The Gresh's do a great job of explaining how this physical play helps boys grow emotionally, physically and mentally. The other five ways are easy to understand and easy to follow through with.

    I liked how the husband had his parts that he spoke up on to give the reader a man's point of view. I enjoyed reading it but wish there had been more then the six areas. If they had filled the book with less beginning information they could have had more specific points to help guide your sons into adulthood. Overall it was a good book to learn about helping your sons grow up into good men.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based solely on my opinion of what I read.
