Publisher's Description

From the cradle to college, tell your sons the truth about life before they believe the culture's lies. 

For parents with boys newborn to eighteen, 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Son will be as much a part of the boyhood journey as those Legos you're still finding under the sofa cushions and the garage full of sports equipment. Award-winning youth culture commentator Vicki Courtney helps moms and dads pinpoint and prepare the discussions that should be ongoing in a boy's formative years. 

Fully addressing the dynamic social and spiritual issues and other influencers at hand, several chapters are written for each of the conversations, which are: 

1. Don't define manhood by the culture's wimpy standards; it's okay to be a man! 

2. What you don't learn to conquer may become your master. 

3. Not everyone's doing it! (And other naked truths about sex you won't hear in the locker room.) 

4. Boyhood is only for a season. P.S. It's time to grow up! 

5. Godly men are in short supply-dare to become one! 

The book also offers invaluable tips on having these conversations across the various stages of development: five and under, six to eleven, and twelve and up.

Author Bio

Vicki Courtney is a speaker and the best-selling author of many books and Bible studies. Among her popular writings are the ECPA Christian Book Award winners TeenVirtue and TeenVirtue Confidential. Vicki and her husband have three grown children, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love, and a grandchild. They live in Austin, Texas where they are blessed to have all of their children living nearby.

Vicki Courtney's 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Son is unconventional: first, because it is written by a mother instead of a father; and second, because it is targeted at mothers. The book looks at how to talk to sons during their years under parental wings. It starts with arguments against the images of emasculated men as seen in automotive ads on TV and Super-Bowl commercials, and progresses to talk about manners, education, dating, personal health, religious disciplines, and even finances.

Courtney states that her insights come from long talks with her husband and son, as well as extensive reading and research. She spends a lot of time discussing the struggles males have concerning sex, and she shows that statistics reveal that 50% of teens are not engaged in premarital sex. Courtney's tone is conversational, like women visiting, but her content is serious and important. She feels that if sons are to grow up knowing how to relate well to women, they should get a lot of insights from their moms.

She also believes that, whereas fathers can strongly influence sons in regard to social obligations and familial responsibilities, only mothers can teach lessons about relating well to all females, whether a sister, mother, wife, or coworker. To that end, her book challenges both mothers and grandmothers to have a direct part in helping to rear young men who are responsible, respectful, and productive. – Joshua A.
