We all know that boys always like to play, be adventurous, and curious, and push their young bodies as far as they can as part of their growth into manhood. Unfortunately, our sons face an increasingly difficult world that doesn't see the value in the lively, delightful nature of boys. In this book, the author shows parents how to bring back the pleasures of being a boy and help them to become the caring, self-assured, men of the future. Dr. Meg Meeker explores the secrets to boyhood, that can include: why rules and boundaries are important and necessary for boys, how the best play area is still outside, providing the kind of adventure that only nature can provide, understanding the important ways to preserve a boy's innocence and help him grow up, recognizing pitfalls that parents are faced with while talking to their sons, and why temperamental and unruly behavior in boys is abnormal and how to deal with it.
