Overview

Does your son tend to be disturbed by loud noises, violence, and crowds, fearful of new situations, easily hurt by criticism, or hesitant about playing aggressive games?

Your son may be one of the 20 percent of all boys with a finely tuned nervous system. Our sensitive boys tend to be creative, kind, and gentle, appreciating beauty and feeling love deeply. Therefore, it’s particularly challenging for sensitive boys to grow up in a culture where boys are taught to act tough, aggressive, and unemotional.

In this groundbreaking book, psychologist Ted Zeff explores the unique challenges of sensitive boys, showing parents, educators, and mentors how to help sensitive boys grow into strong, happy, and confident men. Dr. Zeff offers practical advice on how to help your son increase his self-esteem and thrive in the family, at school, with friends, and in sports.

This book is also important for sensitive men to read to help them heal their childhood wounds, learn how to navigate through our aggressive, overstimulating world, and accept themselves as sensitive men. This book is helpful for sensitive women since how society treats sensitive men deeply affects highly sensitive women—and all women close to sensitive males.

    The Strong and Sensitive Boy

    Being a highly sensitive person myself I was able to pick up on subtle signs that my son was
    displaying. Knowing that his gender would make his experience as an HSP unique to mine,
    I began looking for resources. As a therapist and the mother of a sensitive boy, this has
    proven to be one the best books that I have ever read.

    Ted Zeff provides insight into the sensitive boy as well as permission for boys and men
    to be unique to their own design and desires rather than stereotypes defined by society.
    Upon beginning this easy read, I was able to implement strategies for addressing my son’s
    actions, emotions, as well as his communication style. I also quickly realized what I needed
    to change about my parenting style.

    I have recommended this book to moms who describe their boys as shy or sensitive. The
    Strong and Sensitive Boy has helped me to work with adult men who struggle with feeling
    different than their peers.

    We live in a world that equates physical strength and lack of emotion with manhood. Ted
    Zeff does a wonderful job of teaching us ways to help our caring and compassionate young
    men find a voice, and tools for living in a world in which these positive traits are negated.

    The most important thing that I have learned is that sensitivity and compassion are not
    opposing traits to strength, rather complimentary. As a mom and a therapist, I would highly
    recommend The Strong and Sensitive Boy.
