Boys will be men. But what kind of men? If you want your son to grow up open-hearted, kind, strong and full of life, then the job starts now. Baby, toddler, school child or teen it’s all here. The most popular book ever about raising boys is back, significantly updated to help raise sons in a world that offers gender equality, respect and a whole new kind of man, but is still haunted by toxic masculinity. You’ll find cutting-edge science about the ‘physical fours’, the ‘emotional eights’ and how puberty can be turned into a positive time, along with hundreds of other practical tips for raising a son.No two boys are alike, and we have to get to know our own unique boy. The idea that ‘if we understand them, we can help them’ is what has made this book so well loved and trusted in over a million homes.As one of Australia's best-known psychologists for almost 30 years, Steve has introduced a generation of fathers into hands-on engagement with kids, and helped thousands of mothers gain confidence in their ability to raise sons well. He has worked with schools in 17 countries, and 130,000 parents have heard his unforgettable live talks.
