By letting boys be boys.Dr. Meg Meeker, best-selling author of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters, follows up on her success with Boys Should Be Boys, a guide for parents on how to raise a strong son in these turbulent times. Taking listeners on a journey from boyhood to manhood, Boys Should be Boys delves into the mind, heart, and spirit of boys, showing parents how they can make a difference between the boy their son is and the man he will become.

Not like it was in my days

There are some good points in this book, but generally comes off as an "in my day, we used to play marbles, and bought gum drops for a penny". Some how they think because kids grow up different then they did 50 years ago it's worse. Video games are bad, hand written letters are good. The facts don't add up to what they are trying to portray as reality. Perception that this generation is the worst, is false and fabricated by the media. Because that is what sells and what older people want to hear. It's easier to accept that, then the facts.

If you want that type of book, and very conservative thinking this is the book.

Boys Should Be Boys... Unabridged... eeegads!

Okay... great premise for book...excited to get it. ABSOLUTELY DISAPPOINTED!! First of all, wrong reader!!! is it the author!! OMG.. I feel as if I am being LECTURED by the SNL Church Lady!! Also... I beg for the abridged version... I am sooo sick of hearing story after story about Johnny and his buddies and their tree fort, etc!!! Jeez... just lay out your message and enough with the cutsey little stories that go on and on and on and on and on and... you get my drift... it is just OVER KILL!!! YOU ARE LOSING ME!!! AND I AM ONLY A THIRD OF THE WAY THROUGH THE AUDIO BOOK!!! I agree with what you are saying. I am your target audience (Mother, 45-50 yr.,teenage boy) but I can't stand your delivery!!! What was your publisher thinking????
