Summary
"A much-needed roadmap for helping boys grow into strong and compassionate men. Over the past two decades an explosion of new studies has expanded our knowledge of how boys think and feel. In [this book], psychologist Michael Reichert draws on his many years of research to challenge age-old conventions about how boys become men. Reichert explains how the paradigms about boys needing to be stoic and manly can actually cause them to shut down, leading to anger, isolation, and disrespectful or even destructive behaviors. The key to changing the culture lies in how parents, educators, and mentors help boys develop socially and emotionally. Reichert offers readers step-by-step guidance in doing just this by: listening and observing, without judgment, so that boys know they're being heard; helping boys develop strong connections with teachers, coaches, and other role models; encouraging boys to talk about their feelings about the opposite sex and stressing the importance of respecting women; letting boys know that they don't have to "be a man" or "suck it up," when they are experiencing physical or emotional pain. Featuring the latest insights from psychology and neuroscience, How to Raise a Boy will help those who care for young boys and teenagers build a boyhood that will enable them to grow into confident, accomplished and kind men."--
