The BEST book about raising boys that I have ever read!!

I checked this book out of our library with little expectations...I have read a lot of books about "boys" and have not been impressed. This book was amazing and even DH who doesn't read unless it has pictures (only partially kidding lol)...thought it was very insightful. There are parts that actually seemed written for our little boy!

The way of boys : raising healthy boys in a challenging and complex world / Rao, Anthony.

Re: The BEST book about raising boys that I have ever read!!

thanks for the great rec!! My new boy is less than 2 months old and I already see such a remarkable difference to my DD. I am sure it is just different personalities at this point, but I will def check to see if my library has it.

Growing up with a sister and a much younger brother hasn't fully prepared me for my three boys. Hopefully this book might also shed some light on dh too.

Re: The BEST book about raising boys that I have ever read!!

I just put it on hold at my library. I'm going to be a step mom to a soon to be 8 year old boy. there are no boys in my family so it's very new territory to me.
thanks!

Thank you! I just placed a hold at my library too. I only have a sister, so boys are a bit of a mystery.
