Publisher's Summary

Bringing chivalry back into our modern-day world, this book shows us how to inspire today's generation of young boys to pursue honor, courage, and compassion.
In an age when respect and honor seem like distant and antiquated relics, how can we equip boys to pursue valor and courageously put the needs of others before their own? This book helps parents to inspire their boys by captivating their imagination and honoring their love for adventure. Heather Haupt explores how knights historically lived out various aspects of the knights' Code of Chivalry, as depicted in the French epic Song of Roland, and how boys can embody these same ideals now. When we issue the challenge and give boys the reasons why it is worth pursuing, we step forward on an incredible journey toward raising the kind of boys who, just like the knights of old, make an impact in their world now and for the rest of their lives.
Bonus PDF included with Knights in Training resources and book recommendations.

Fun and interesting

A really good read. The application of the principles of chivalry in raising boys is a brilliant notion. I see this being a great tool to use with son as he's very fond of emulating heroes.

Not just for parents of boys!

Even though I have two girls, this was such a great book. While the implementation will look different, many of the principles outlined in this book apply to girls as well as boys. More importantly, it reminded me of some of the aspects of "boyhood" I need to teach my girls about such as allowing a boy to help you. (For an independent minded girl this is the last thing she wants!)

You are either raising modern day knights or the young maidens who will one day marry those knights. Let's raise an honorable generation!
