Heather Haupt really nailed it with her book Knights in Training: Ten Principles for Raising Honorable, Courageous, and Compassionate Boys. This book has ten principles taken from the time honored code of the knights, reminding us that not much is different when it comes to raising the next generation of young men. It was refreshing for me to read a book that reminds us that boys are different and there is a very good reason why we do not want to raise typical boys. In this book parents are reminded that “old fashioned” virtues do not have to be old fashioned and chivalry is not dead…these things just need to be modeled and taught as we raise modern day knights to love God, defend and protect, persevere, pursue excellence, obey those in authority, respect and honor women, etc. One of the things that impressed me with the book is the author’s passion for the subject. This was very much displayed in the summer of 2017, when Mrs. Haupt was “live” on her facebook page every week for several weeks in a row discussing the concepts of the book with her fans and followers. I enjoyed the videos and the discussions that came of those. This book also lists several resources that your boys will love as well as a link for a Knight’s Code of Chivalry Poster that my son really was excited about as I was reading the book. This book is one I definitely recommend for parents of boys.
