Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"THE WONDER OF BOYS is a provocative book that electrifies the debate over how this nation raises sons." 

— USA Today

 

In this insightful and practical book, Michael Gurian describes what boys need to become strong, responsible, sensitive men. Instead of encouraging us to stifle boys' natural propensities for competition and aggression, Gurian offers effective and practical guidelines for channeling them. He shows how the evils boys are susceptible to, including gang activity, sexual misconduct, and crime, become necessary outlets when positive role models and adult support are not available.

Most important, Gurian explains what a boy really needs--a primary and an extended family, relationships with mentors, and intense support form his school and community--and details how we can provide these things for the boys we love.

 

Synopsis:

I n this edition of his parenting classic, Michael Gurian considers how the culture has changed in the ten years since The Wonder of Boys was first published, including the impact of the Internet.

Synopsis:

Unlike many parenting guides that try to eliminate competition, aggression, and violence entirely, "The Wonder of Boys" boldly offers guidelines for channeling boys' energy, but without accepting antisocial behavior as an inevitable accompaniment. Therapist Michael Gurian explains what a boy really needs--a primary and an extended family, a relationship with mother, father, and mentors, as well as intense support from school and community.
