Publisher's Description

2002 Gold Medallion Award winner!
Sensible advice and caring encouragement on raising boys from the nation's most trusted parenting expert, Dr.James Dobson. With so much confusion about the role of men in our society, it's no wonder so many parents and teachers are at a loss about how to bring up boys. Our culture has vilified masculinity and, as a result, boys are suffering. Parents, teachers, and others involved in shaping the character of boys have lots of questions. In Bringing Up Boys, Dr. Dobson tackles these questions and offers advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles.

    Dr. Dobson's book was recommended by a friend, unfortunately I did not find it helpful.

    80% book consists of discouraging statics about the state of families, the failure of mothers and (fathers) and boys who have been wronged and hopelessly ruined by their parents and society. When I bought and looked forward to reading this book, I was hoping to find some "time-tested" advice about how to guide and raise our son in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, instead I felt I was dragged through a mire of disheartening statistics.

    I would say about 20% of the book does actually contain advice. It comes in two forms: Dr. Dobson's personal advice, which even as a conservative stay-at-home mom, I found much of it to be antiquated and out-of-touch with today's world, and even personally offensive at times. The redeeming portions are quotes that Dobson has included from the writings of other counselors and psychiatrists. Some of these quotes make up the majority of Dobson's chapters. The advice is good and helpful, but it is not written by Dr. Dobson.

    I'm very to sorry to say this book, which I had really hoped to find helpful was a great disappointment.

    A lot of focus on what not to do and threats facing boys. I guess I expected more on what TO do and felt a bit disappointed. Mostly this book ignited anger over how as a society we are anti-male and boys always seem left out in preference to girls. As a mother of three boys, this made me angry in general. Which I suppose would be a good thing if I knew where to go from here with it. Insightful. Definitely changed my perspective and helped me to address issues differently to encourage masculine values. Would recommend.

    Very helpful book. I enjoyed reading it and learned quite a lot. The author is easy to understand and points you to the Bible as your guide.
