Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A savvy parenting expert explains the common-sense approaches moms need to prepare their sons for life and preserve themselves along the way. Dean Gallagher narrates this outstanding guide with friendly urgency. His youthful voice and optimistic tone help make the advice sound reasonable and easy to put into practice. He brings home the message that in spite of their protests, boys need acceptance from their moms and a steady diet of clear expectations and consistent consequences. With vivid, confidence-inspiring scenarios that range from the toddler to late-teen years, Leman shows how moms can use their authority without being authoritarian and how they can be more loving and empathetic without enabling irresponsible behavior. With a performance that fits this material perfectly, this is a stress-reducing, empowering message that every mom should hear."

My husband and I adopted our Son from the foster care system when he was 5 months old. I LOVE how Dr Leman includes adoptive moms in his writing. I have know how special I am to my Son and hoe influential I am in his life however this book really solidified how crucial my relationship is with my Son. GREAT job Dr. Leman!
