Raising Boys Summary

Raising Boys: Why Boys are Different - and How to Help Them Become Happy and Well-Balanced Men by Steve Biddulph

Britain's no. 1 favourite childcare author and family therapist, Steve Biddulph's classic million copy bestseller

Boys need to be parented in a different way from girls with their own very special psychological and physical make-up. Home, society and education have failed boys badly - and these failures lead to unhappy men who cannot fully become happy, responsible, emotionally-confident adults.

It is essential that boys spend more time learning about manhood from their fathers. And through the teen years a boy ideally needs a male mentor outside his immediate family to teach him the best way to live. Without these things boys can turn to alcohol, drugs and despair and fail to grow up into feeling, responsible adults.

A book which gives good advice on: the stages of boyhood; how a mother teaches about life and love; how schools need to change to be made a good place for boys; testosterone and how it changes behaviour; how to be a good father; how to teach boys to have a caring attitude to girls and about sex.

Raising Boys Reviews

`a mix of Billy Connelly and Dr Spock ... Steve Biddulph is a publishing phenomenon' The Times

`Steve's advice is easy to follow - and more importantly, it works.' BBC Family Life Magazine

`When you find a guru willing to change his mind when evidence and humanity prompt, you rejoice. For me, Steve Biddulph - one of the most popular [parenting gurus] in the world, with four million books sold - is the man.'
Libby Purves, The Times

`Biddulph... has a built-in feel good factor. Parenting books too often make one fell inadequate, but Biddulph's left me refreshed and optimistic.'
The Express

`Packed full of pithy wisdom on what it is to move from boyhood to manhood and how to help your (not-so) little one on his way.'
The Independent
