I have a boy myself and he's going through rough teenaged years. This wonderful book advises parents on how to raise boys into becoming well-adjusted men. From infancy all the way through the teen years, there is nothing left out. It's also good for my research as a writer of Young Adult fiction. Highly recommended.
