Publisher's Summary

Playing off the themes in the Caldecott Medal-winning children's book Where the Wild Things Are, this informative, practical, and encouraging guide will help parents guide boys down the path to healthy and authentic manhood.
Wild Things addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual parts of a boy, written by two therapists who are currently engaged in clinical work with boys and their parents and who are also fathers raising five sons. This book contains chapters such as "Sit Still! Pay Attention!", "Deficits and Disappointments", and "Rituals, Ceremonies, and Rites of Passage".


What the Critics Say

"This worthy, engaging owner's manual on boys aged two to 22 is written from a reserved, supportive Christian perspective." (Library Journal)

Joy and wonder

There is so much joy in raising a boy! I had completely lost sight of that as we dealt with our daily struggles. Thanks to Wild Things, I not only understand my boy much better, I also appreciate all the wonders of his crazy, hectic, messy boyhood so much more. Listening to the audio version in the car, I couldn't wait to get home to see my boy, where before I would be a little anxious of what new challenges my boy had for us each day. This book had so much valuable insight that I just had to buy the printed version as well. I will go back and highlight and bookmark many parts of it. This book is for everyone who has a boy in their lives, not just parents.
