9780722599440: Raising Boys: Why Boys are Different - And How to Help Them Become Happy and Well-balanced Men

This tape explores what makes boys tick, how they grow up - and how to ensure they grow up to be happy confident grown-ups. The author explains the three key states of childhood - 0-6 where a boy needs mother love and lots of it; 7-14 where he needs a lot of interaction with his father (and mother needs to stand back and let this happen); 14+ where he will shy away from parental interference and needs a responsible male mentor figure to direct him safely through the pitfalls and trails of adolescence.

Review:

'a mix of Billy Connelly and Dr Spock ... Steve Biddulph is a publishing phenomenon' The Times 'Steve's advice is easy to follow - and more importantly, it works.' BBC Family Life Magazine 'When you find a guru willing to change his mind when evidence and humanity prompt, you rejoice. For me, Steve Biddulph - one of the most popular [parenting gurus] in the world, with four million books sold - is the man.' Libby Purves, The Times 'Biddulph... has a built-in feel good factor. Parenting books too often make one fell inadequate, but Biddulph's left me refreshed and optimistic.' The Express 'Packed full of pithy wisdom on what it is to move from boyhood to manhood and how to help your (not-so) little one on his way.' The Independent
