About This Book:
 
Your son was created for great things, but he needs your help to appreciate his unique male design and to grow into the strong, loving man God created him to be.

Among other things, you’ll learn how to help your son:

• strengthen his character, resilience, and self-discipline

• succeed in school and hone crucial life skills
• develop a healthy perspective of sexuality
• avoid the pitfalls of media and technology
• embark on a lifelong adventure of faith

 This unique resource combines the latest research in brain science with timeless truths from the Bible to reveal the deepest needs shared by every boy of faith while also leading you to fresh insights for honoring the unique personality, talents, and God-given design of your son in particular.

You can help your son thrive today as the hero he is meant to be when you learn the secrets of Raising Boys by Design.
 
My Thoughts on This Book:
 
No matter how old your son is, this is an excellent book to help you understand the 'boy' in your son. Having two growing boys in my house, I love reading books that will help me understand the males that live under my roof. They handle emotion, tension, stress, much differently than females. With this Christ centered book, you will begin to understand the dynamics of your son's brain, and help your son become the best man he can be.. Great book!
