    Great book

    This is a great book that gives me comfort as a mom. It's written in sections based on age. Every few years I read the section that it pertinent to my son's age and it reminds me that my son is "normal" and "okay."

    AWESOME BOOK! Great for parents of any age boy! Makes a great gift!

    I was given this book as a gift and have since bought it for three other moms of boys that I know! It has such wonderful information for modern mothers to help them understand their sons, and great insight for fathers too! The book is long and seems daunting but it is organized into chapters based on age so you can read whichever sections apply to you. It is VERY EASY to read, with a light tone and wonderful stories to help illustrate the author's points. The only down-side is that the information is written in a narrative format, so you can't just skim through the book for bullet points, outlines, or summaries. It is really meant to be read through. The good thing is that the writing is not too deep or intellectual so it is easy to understand and a quick read!

    If you're looking for the manual that should have come with your son, this is it!

    I'm a mom, so maybe that's why I was so worried, but I always thought that there was something seriously wrong with my 7 year old son. Apparently, he's normal- who knew? I love this book. It just makes sense and its SO helpful. The fact that its a good read and has little stories and tidbits from other parents just makes it all the more enjoyable. If I could, I'd buy a copy for all of my friends with sons. It should be sent home with all parents of boys before leaving the hospital.
