"With two young sons of our own, Jean and I can certainly attest to the challenges raising boys can bring! Dannah and Bob offer parents a fascinating look into the development of tween and teen boys, as well as a wealth of practical, hands-on musts for successfully connecting with them. Learn the 'how-to's' for building and strengthening parent/son relationships and guiding young men toward a purposeful, God-honoring adulthood." -Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family "Every mom wants her little boy to grow to be a caring and courageous man. The truth is, she can either be his ally on that journey to manhood, or she can hinder his progress. Thankfully, Dannah Gresh has sound, practical wisdom for moms who want their sons to be the men God made them to be." -Bob Lepine, co-host of FamilyLife Today "Almost every single day I ask the Lord to make me a better mom to my four children. Books like this one feel like an answer to prayer. Dannah Gresh has done a fabulous job addressing many of the issues that concern our boys. I highly recommend her insights, biblical instruction, and practical mom application. These pages are marching orders! It's time to fight for the good in our boys!" -Angela Thomas, bestselling author and speaker "Boy oh boy! Bob and Dannah Gresh have written a great book for parents of sons. I know. I have three of my own. And I wish I would have had a resource like this when they were young.
