Helps parents reopen the lines of communication with "silent" teenage sons and stay emotionally connected with them Adolescent boys are notoriously uncommunicative. Unfortunately, too many parents equate not talking with not feeling, and, as authors Susan Morris Shaffer and Linda Perlman Gordon explain in this groundbreaking guide, parents who make that assumption end up validating only the most superficial aspects of their sons. Recent bestsellers such as Real Boys and The Wonder of Boys have done a good job of sensitizing parents to the inner lives of boys and opening their eyes to how society shortchanges boys emotionally. Now, Why Boys Don't Talk--and Why It Matters goes a step further. Coauthored by a nationally acclaimed expert on gender equity and a social worker--both of whom successfully raised teenagers of both sexes--it: Arms parents with proven techniques for communicating with their adolescent sons and reestablishing strong emotional bonds with them Draws upon focus groups as well as the authors' considerable experience in gender equity research and counseling, to analyze the subtle ways boys communicate connection

Revised and updated fourth edition of RAISING BOYS to coincide with the release of author's new parenting book, STEVE BIDDULPH'S RAISING GIRLS Few books have stayed in the news as much as Steve Biddulph's million-copy seller RAISING BOYS. It has changed how we parent sons. thousands of parents keep their boy at home a year longer before starting school and tens of thousands have taught their sons to cook (sparking a worldwide pasta shortage!). And an incredible result - this generation of dads is spending three times as much time with their children. Steve has updated RAISING BOYS dramatically throughout its life, and this new edition is no exception. this book features helpful messages about the three stages of boyhood which help parents plan their lives to keep boys safe and loving life. Steve tackles how to find the very best school (it's often NOt an expensive private school) and how to safeguard against internet pornography harming a boy's spirit or his ability to relate to girls as people. Steve includes stories of mothers who learned to love boyishness - with all its energy and intense emotions. these encourage mums and dads who find boys a bit overwhelming. the message is don't panic - boys are honest and simple. they just need you to have a sense of fun but also to be strong and clear. Learn to laugh - boys' testosterone makes them worry when you are tense. Set clear rules and they will be calmer too. Everyone wants to raise their sons to be caring, warm and strong. Steve Biddulph really has led this worldwide change, and this new edition continues to do so.

Are boys more active and aggressive? Do girls talk earlier? Do boys have a harder time separating from their mothers? Do girls have the edge in learning to read and write? Why do boys and girls like different toys?

Selected as one of the Top 5 Educational Books by Literacy News The signs and statistics are undeniable: boys are falling behind in school. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the biggest culprits are not video games, pop culture, or female-dominated schools biased toward girls. The real problem is that boys have been thrust into a bewildering new school environment that demands high-level reading and writing skills long before they are capable of handling them. Lacking the ability to compete, boys fall farther and farther behind. Eventually, the problem gets pushed into college, where close to 60% of the graduates are women. In a time when even cops, construction foremen, and machine operators need post-high school degrees, that's a problem. Why Boys Fail takes a hard look at how this ominous reality came to be, how it has worsened in recent years, and why attempts to resolve it often devolve into finger-pointing and polarizing politics. But the book also shares some good news. Amidst the alarming proof of failure among boys-around the world-there are also inspiring case studies of schools where something is going right. Each has come up with realistic ways to make sure that every student-male and female-has the tools to succeed in school and later in life. Educators and parents alike will take heart in these promising developments, and heed the book's call to action-not only to demand solutions but also to help create them for their own students and children.

Why do we get boys' adolescence so wrong? Here's how to steer them through this silent and confusing passage, by the co-author of the bestselling Care and Keeping of You series and Guy Stuff: The Body Book for Boys Why is my son suddenly retreating behind closed doors? What's with his curt responses, impulsiveness, newfound obsession with gaming, and...that funky smell? As pediatrician and mother of a boy Cara Natterson explains, puberty starts in boys long before any visible signs appear, and it's as confusing for our sons as it is for parents, often leading to less parent-child communication in the name of keeping the peace. But, as Natterson warns in Decoding Boys, we respect their increasing "need" for privacy and alone time at their peril. Explaining how modern culture mixes badly with male adolescent biology, Natterson offers science, strategies, scripts, and tips for getting it right: * Why boys need emotional and physical contact with parents--and how to give it in ways they'll accept * How to manage video game "addiction," screen time, and pornography * How to steer boys away from new social pressures--vaping, drugs, and alcohol * Teaching consent and sensitivity in the #metoo culture Decoding Boys is a powerful and validating lifeline, a book that will help today's parents keep their sons safe, healthy, and resilient, as well as ensure they become emotionally secure young men.
