A Fine Young Man Reviews
Awesome book for understanding boys. It helped me understand how to help Noah with this challenging stage called adolescence.
All of Gurian's books are good.
This book was recommended to me by our pediatrician. It does a good job of helping you understand your adolescent boy. It's especially great for moms like me that never had brothers and need some help understanding how boys think and why they do what they do.
A book that I decided to keep even though my son had left home to attend university. I would recommend it to any parent with an adolescent son. We sometimes think that our sons need us less as they go through their teenage years. This book shows the opposite - our sons benefit from our parenting more than ever.
Good book. Boys go through 3 stages. They need lots of help being guided through them. They need mentors. Not just their parents. They need good friends and adults around them who can model things for them. They need to learn compassion. So many things to think about for my boys!
I learned a lot from this book. Especially being raised with sisters only, some of these things were an eye-opener. I think it could be typed up in a few-paged summary though, because not all of the book was worthwhile and some parts I completely disagreed with. But the good stuff was very good, and useful. I've got 2 little boys and I think I'll apply this a lot more as they get older.
Didn't read it all. Makes some good points. I disagree with some parts but it made me more aware of my boys.
Heavy going in places ( a lot about brain development) but interesting, particularly thoughts on single-sex vs co-ed for boys - strongly recommends single sex for adolescent boys and no dating before 16!
Insightful reading on transitioning teen relationships.
