Publisher's Summary

What are little boys made of? It used to be frogs, snails, and puppy dog tails, but today it is MTV, ADD, and STDs. So how do parents raise their sons to be respectful and responsible young men in a toxic culture that relentlessly undermines masculine virtues such as moral strength, self-restraint, and respect for women? 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.

Great guide for grownups

Had I read the negative reviews, I never would have bought this book! Thankfully, I didn't do my homework.

This book is gold. My only regret is I didn't have it for the raising of my older kids as it would have saved us a lot of pain and regret. The narrator's voice is a little preachy, but inoffensive if your focus is on the content. The material is excellent. Thanks Dr. Meeker for a great resource!

If you have a boy..

If you have a boy under your care you MUST read/listen to this book. I am a child of a single mother and did not learn the principles of fatherhood that Meg explains as vital to a boys growth and success in life. Highly Recommended!

Great listening

I started reading the book but found it informative but to big a read to get through.

Downloaded the audible version and enjoyed it immensely and learnt quite a bit about being an effective and good father.

Great listening.
