A friend of mine told me about this book and I am so thankful. The author spells it out clearly for moms. I had so many ah-ha moments while reading this book. He is very careful to not stereo-type all boys but I have to say, he has helped me so much with understanding my son. I had stopped reading the book for a few days and my son and I were having a disagreement. My son told me, 'Mom, you need to start reading that book again.' Obviously, he noticed a change in my interaction with him. I have been less quick to make him settle down and quiet down, if he is not disturbing or hurting anyone. I have learned to let him have a little more freedom to express his boyhood into manhood.
