The Power of Connection to Build Good Men
Michael C. Reichert

Over the past two decades there has been an explosion of new studies that have expanded our knowledge of how boys think and feel. In HOW TO RAISE A BOY, psychologist, Michael Reichert, draws on his decades of research to challenge age-old conventions about how boys become men.

Reichert explains how the paradigms about boys needing to be stoic and "man like" can actually cause them to shut down, leading to anger, isolation and disrespectful or even destructive behaviour. The key to changing the culture lies in how parents, teachers and mentors help boys develop socially and emotionally. Reichert offers readers step-by-step guidance in doing just this by:

· Listening and observing, without judgment, so that boys know they're
being listened to.
· Helping them develop strong connections with teachers, coaches and
other role models
· Encouraging them to talk about their feelings about the opposite sex
and stressing the importance of respecting women
· Letting them know that they don't have to "be a man" or "suffer in
silence" when they are experiencing physical or emotional pain.

Featuring the latest insights from psychology and neuroscience, HOW TO RAISE A BOY will help those who care for young boys and teenagers build a boyhood that will enable them to grow into confident, accomplished and kind men.
