"Six boys!" folks say in mock horror, "Well, better you than me." We answer them cheerfully - we love our boys and they're a gift from God...a reward. Privately, though, we admit to ourselves it's not always rosy. Teenaged boys put away a startling amount of groceries. Young boys can be downright destructive. They're noisy, unconcerned with personal hygiene, and the dog has a longer attention span - or so it seems, some days. If this is God's chosen gift to us, then why does it seem so hard? How can we prepare these boys to serve God when we can barely make it through the day. Isn't there a better way? The answer is yes. Raising Real Men looks beyond the untied shoes and dirty jeans to what the Lord means your son to be. Learn how to help him focus on schoolwork, find real heroes, stand alone when he needs to, and become a real man one day. Don t just survive raising boys, succeed at it and learn how to love them as they really are.

About the Author:

Hal and Melanie Young have been blessed with six real boys (and two real girls). They frequently speak on parenting, education and family policy issues, and their articles have appeared in publications in the U.S. and abroad including Homeschooling Today, The Freeman: Ideas on Liberty, Homeschool Digest, School Reform News, and Conservative Citizen.

Review:

As the grandfather of six boys ranging in age from two to fifteen, I am acutely aware of the need that this book fills, and quite admirably. This is just what the doctor ordered for parents who want to raise capable Christian men of character. --John Rosemond, Parenting Columnist and Author of Parenting by the Book

In a time when our culture seems intent on emasculating our boys, it is a real pleasure to find Christians who are pushing back, responding with biblical answers. Raising Real Men combines a number of important characteristics in giving advice to parents of young boys it is earthy, realistic, humorous and scriptural. Hal and Melanie Young write from a homeschooling setting, but much of what they have to say is also pertinent to Christian parents of boys in private Christian schools. I hope this book gets a wide reading in both realms. --Douglas Wilson, Author of Future Men, Minister of Christ Church, Moscow, Idaho

Raising boys can be a tremendous challenge for parents, especially when you have more than an few. We know that God designed them much differently than girls because of the role that He has chosen for them in life. Hal and Melanie in RAISING REAL MEN, have approached this subject from a Biblical perspective and have been true to the Biblical principles laid down for raising boys. However, once the principle has been laid out, then they bring a unique practical aspect to raising boys where the rubber meets the road. This is a book that will give parents a clear road map to follow for having the greatest possibility of success as parents prepare boys for their God-given role in adulthood. This is a book that every family should have no matter the number of boys and even those families without boys as the book gives tremendous insight into understanding how boys think and why they act as they do. This book meets a crying need in an area where there is very little specific direction. Thank you Hal and Melanie for this outstanding work of the Lord. --J. Michael Smith, Esq., President, Home School Legal Defense Association
