In an age when respect and honor seem like distant and antiquated relics, how can we equip boys to pursue valor and courageously put the needs of others before their own? This book helps parents to inspire their boys by captivating their imagination and honoring their love for adventure. Heather Haupt explores how knights historically lived out various aspects of the knights' Code of Chivalry, as depicted in the French epic Song of Roland, and how boys can embody these same ideals now. When we issue the challenge and give boys the reasons why it is worth pursuing, we step forward on an incredible journey towards raising the kind of boys who, just like the knights of old, make an impact in their world now and for the rest of their lives.

"Chivalry does not have to die and civility does not have to be a lost art form, but the only way for these to make a comeback in society is to start in families and at home. Heather Haupt offers fascinating insight into the current state of boyhood and manhood, alongside a practical and fun guide for training our boys in the ways of courage, kindness, and honor. I'm inspired to raise my three boys to be modern-day knights who will love God, respect and serve others, and leave this world a better place than they found it."
-Erin Mohring, co-founder of The MOB Society and Raising Boys Ministries, writer at homewiththeboys.net
"I often talk with parents about the importance of teaching boys to be gentlemen. Then parents ask me, "How, exactly do I do that? How do I raise my son to be a gentleman?" From now on, I will know just how to answer. I will tell parents: "Read Heather Haupts book Knights in Training.""
-Leonard Sax MD PhD, author of the New York Times bestseller The Collapse of Parenting, Why Gender Matters, Boys Adrift, Girls on the Edge
"As a father seeking to raise a son in an environment that seems at times hostile to the idea of manhood, I found Heather's book both challenging and refreshing! I pray that the 10 principles espoused in this book would by God's grace become normative for how we seek to raise our boys into men."
-Matt Chandler - Author, Lead Pastor of The Village Church, President of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network
"I am so grateful to see a fresh perspective on an age-old quest: raising boys into men. Using the time-honored code of the Knights, Heather reminds parents that not much has changed when it comes to raising the next generation of young men. Treat women with respect. Tell the truth. Be generous. Thanks, Heather! I needed that. We all need it."
Heidi St. John, Author, Speaker, Creator of thebusymom.com
"Heather Haupt has written a much-needed guide for raising boys into men…Chivalry is all-but dead, but Haupt's excellent book will tell parents how to bring it back to life!"

Pastor David GreenMansfield OHAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Chivalry Is Not Dead!March 4, 2018Pastor David GreenMansfield OHAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heather Haupt really nailed it with her book Knights in Training: Ten Principles for Raising Honorable, Courageous, and Compassionate Boys. This book has ten principles taken from the time honored code of the knights, reminding us that not much is different when it comes to raising the next generation of young men. It was refreshing for me to read a book that reminds us that boys are different and there is a very good reason why we do not want to raise typical boys.
In this book parents are reminded that "old fashioned" virtues do not have to be old fashioned and chivalry is not dead...these things just need to be modeled and taught as we raise modern day knights to love God, defend and protect, persevere, pursue excellence, obey those in authority, respect and honor women, etc.
One of the things that impressed me with the book is the author's passion for the subject. This was very much displayed in the summer of 2017, when Mrs. Haupt was "live" on her facebook page every week for several weeks in a row discussing the concepts of the book with her fans and followers. I enjoyed the videos and the discussions that came of those.
This book also lists several resources that your boys will love as well as a link for a Knight's Code of Chivalry Poster that my son really was excited about as I was reading the book.
This book is one I definitely recommend for parents of boys.
Dayna H.5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring, enjoyable, and culture-changing readJuly 14, 2017Dayna H.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Knights in Training: Ten Principles for Raising Honorable, Courageous, and Compassionate Boys is an important and inspiring read.
Although the principles outlined here have their roots in rich history, the book's message couldn't be more relevant for the present day.
Well-researched and highly readable, Knights in Training is partially a parenting book, but more largely a bold call to action that challenges concerning cultural norms. The author rejects low expectations and succeeds in casting a vision of boys who are "honorable, courageous, & compassionate" and whom grow into men of even greater character.
Backing up ambitious inspiration with specific examples, practical applications, & even fun exercises, Heather makes this hope of every boy-parent a possible reality.
Her historic and literary references (often in the form of worthy quotes), treasured book recommendations, and relevant personal anecdotes keep the reader's interest from cover to cover.
Clearly, the challenge of raising a young man such as this is a noble & worthwhile endeavor. This book is sure to become a cherished resource to those on the journey.
*I received an advanced reader's copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
