In "Bringing Up Boys, " Dr. James Dobson, America's most trusted authority on family issues, tackles these questions and offers advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles. "Bringing Up Boys"--a must-read book for parents, teachers, social workers, youth leaders, counselors--anyone involved in the challenge of turning boys into good men. The audio book is read by Wayne Shepard and punctuated by original music.

|One of the most important books written in the last 10 Years Feb 25, 2007|
|What struck me most powerfully about the book was the devastating effects of divorce on our children. All too often we look around and see acquaintances at work and church who are divorced and they seems to be much happier for it. The children of these divorced couples seem, on the surface, be taking it all in stride with no ill effect. Any man or woman considering giving up on marriage should read this book before calling an attorney. Dr. Dobson highlights that far too much is in jeopardy. Not only does Dr. Dobson provide reasons to save your marriage but practical advice that will help you heal your love relationship. You will want to read this book with a pen in hand to take notes.|
|Bring up Boys Feb 15, 2007|
|I'm a mother of two boys and after reading Dr. Dobson's book I feel I have a better understanding and appreciation of my boys.|
|"Boys" 101 Feb 8, 2007|
|Dobson has bravely presented some of the fundamentally observable maleness of boys. In today's politically correct environment that is anathema to the PC thought police. Still Dobson is Dobson - he goes on to address every other matter, in addition to boys, which he also considers important. Missing is the theological basis for the difference between boys and girls, as in what was in God's mind when he originally created the human race in two genders. Still, the book gives much practical insight into boyhood and the parents who want to bring their offspring through it alive along with themselves!|
|This is child abuse Jan 31, 2007|
|Parenting means to prepare a child for life, to nurture, to love, to guide, to teach.|
Discipline is loving guidance, not corporal punishment, where the child in a demeaning and destructive way wrongly learns that violence is a form of acceptable communication and guidance, by parents. There are no benefits to hit a child - It is destructive for a child's self worth, self esteem, and demeaning and disrespectful. Children have feelings and emotions as adults. It is extremely unfair and disgraceful of parents to misuse their power on weaker people - our children - who are defenseless and who don't have their own voice. Your child will be confused and think "Why is my mother and father whom I love and trust inflicting pain on me?" Hitting a child, will separate the bond between parents and a child, and will only make the child fearful of their parents. In addition, hitting a child won't teach and guide a child towards better behavior in a constructive and communicative way. By slapping someone, what do you learn? Nothing - only that it is okay to be antisocial and misbehave and to be violent. Parents who hit their children are THE ONE'S misbehaving. They are no good role models. These parents need parenting classes and therapy as they are victims of abuse themselves. These parents are out of control and out of knowledge.
Think of the Golden rule: Treat other people, yes children are people too, as you with to be treated yourself, with respect, love and kindness. Children are children: They need a safe place to explore their boundaries and to test their parents' love, where parents act as wise, patient, and loving parents- as parents. Why spank a child whose brains are not yet fully developed? Children don't know right from wrong - It is our job to guide and teach them, not punish them. Christians should know better that "spare the rod, spoil the child" from Proverbs in Old Testament is not current any longer. Remember- With Jesus comes a better way, a New Law: The New Testament. Jesus does not spank the children. Jesus says "Let the children come to me". Jesus loves the little children. My fundamental questions are: Why do these parents give birth to children in the world if they can't raise children and love children? Where is the human intelligence here? These dysfunctional parents have grave limitations when it comes to parenting children, as they have not healed from their wounded past and subconsciousness. Their only driving force is to let the child take away their own pain from abuse, by forcing them to pay the price for their own pain, and force the child know how it feels like to be abused.

|Help for Single Mothers! Jan 16, 2007|
|This book has been great for answering questions! I am a singlemother with a very "busy" 5 yr old boy and was at my wits end as to why he does what he does and what I should do with him. This book has a lot of information on those exact things! It explains in depth how different and special little boys are and how truly special and unique they are. It has also helped me enjoy my son for who he is - without this book and the understanding it has given me I would be lost!!!!!!!!!!!! I would recommend it to any mother but especially those of us who are single and who are wondering how in the world we are going to teach them how to be men when there aren't any around to b examples!|
