Publisher's Summary

Love That Boy is a uniquely personal story about the causes and costs of outsized parental expectations. What we want for our children - popularity, normalcy, achievement, genius - and what they truly need - grit, empathy, character - are explored by National Journal's Ron Fournier, who weaves his extraordinary journey to acceptance around the latest research on childhood development and stories of other loving-but-struggling parents.

Compelling Story, difficult to listen to narration

What didn’t you like about Jonathan Yen’s performance?

I thought the accents of the Presidents were too affected and not authentic. It took away so much from the story.

Confessional and Critical

His honest discoveries and willingness to be impacted by the parenting experience is refreshing. This is an excellent read for parents who ask the hard questions. One hard issue: "knowing" my kids / wife / family vs having good life experiences with them. He is painfully critical, judgmental, of some approaches to parenting / child development. While jarring at times, his critiques remind me of the inner dialogue that I often keep to myself. The overall message is helpful and the story keeps your interest from start to finish.
