Bringing Up Boys Hardcover – Import, 31 Oct 2001
Customers who bought this item also bought
Dobson, a psychologist and family counselor, takes a decidedly conservative approach to the "special challenge of raising boys." Celebrating the natural differences between boys and girls, Dobson outlines biological differences, particular issues in disciplining boys, and the different roles of mothers and fathers. He scoffs at those who attribute differences to social factors. Dobson is particularly critical of feminists and their influence on American culture, for example, the advent of nonsexist toys. Dobson sees the "future of Western civilization" dependent on how we handle the "crisis" of raising the next generation of men. Much of his advice on boy-rearing issues, from discipline to attention deficit disorder to coping with divorce, is biblically based. Each chapter ends with a question-and-answer format. The most controversial chapter examines the origins of homosexuality, calling it a "disorder" that can be cured. Conservative and Christian readers may enjoy Dobson's book; other readers are likely to take issue with some of his observations. Vanessa Bush

Coming from an all girls family I didn’t know the challenges a boy faces during his life much less the challenges he will face in this day and age. I have a 10 month old son and I am praying that I understand him the way he is and not the way the culture or I myself make him to be. I’m sure I’ll be reading this book again and again because of all the information contained in it.
