Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In Boys Should Be Boys , critically acclaimed author Dr. Meg Meeker helps parents restore the delights of boyhood and enable today's boys to become the mature, confident, and thoughtful men of tomorrow.
Boys will always be boys--rambunctious, adventurous, and curious, climbing trees, building forts, playing tackle football, all part of the rite of passage into manhood. But today our sons face an increasingly hostile world, one that doesn't value the spirited nature of boys. Meeker explores the secrets to boyhood to create an uplifting guide to make raising sons a little easier.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 249-264) and index.
