Overview

Raising a Son: Parents and the Making of a Healthy Man by Don Elium, Jeanne Elium

Boys pose special challenges for today’s stressed parents. In Raising A Son, the Eliums embrace the challenges—and the joys—of raising boys with compassion, commitment, experience, patience, and humor. This fully updated and expanded edition follows the psychological development of boys from infancy to young adulthood. Look for new sections on: 
 
• media and violence 
• the “boy code” 
• age-appropriate morality 
• the out-of-control son 
• triggers for aggression 
• when and how to get help
• coping with guilt 
• the highly sensitive son
• triggers for withdrawal 
• why he gets overwhelmed 
• hypersensitivity and ADD 
• the right role models
