Raising Boys by Design (Book Review)

Your son was created for great things, but he needs your help to appreciate his unique male design and to grow into the strong loving man God created him to be.

Packed with doable strategies and eyeopening examples of what's really going on inside a boy's brain, Raising Boys by Design offers a practical blueprint to help you build a HERO--one who values Honor, Enterprise, Responsibility, and Originality.

Thanks to WaterBrook Press and Random House, I received a complimentary review copy of Raising Boys by Design by Gregory L. Jantz and Michael Gurian.

Raising Boys by Design is not a quick read, but it's worth the time it takes.  I like the blend of scientific and faith-based information, provided by Michael Gurian and Gregg Jantz, respectively.  I agree with the authors that boys are wired differently than girls; I have no brothers, so I didn't fully understand that until I had a son!  I would have gotten more from this book if I'd read it when he was younger, but it's still helpful now.  I especially like the sections on transitioning boys from children to adults and making faith work for boys.

See the WaterBrook Press page for Raising Boys by Design for an excerpt, links to the authors' websites and social media pages, and more information.
