Review by Train Up A Child

Moms of Boys-Wouldn’t You Like to Know How to Raise a Real Man?

Having been in a four daughter family, I was not prepared for boys. Sure, I knew how to like boys and indeed, captured a fine specimen for a husband. But, raising one? Yikes, I was clueless. Very unprepared for adventurous boys who like to take chances, get dirty, and just be silly.

Fortunately, many aspects of Christian child-rearing are similiar for both genders. My children are considered “good” kids. But, I want more. I want my boys to be strong, fearless men of God-leaders in their sphere wherever life takes them. Along comes Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching and Appreciating Boys.  Authors Hal and Melanie Young know what they are writing about-they have six boys and two girls. Reading this book, I was constantly dog-earing pages to remind myself of important concepts. I appreciated those points I never thought of as well as those heard before and reiterated in this book that truly must be in the possession of every family with at least one boy.  It positively should be read every year.

Just a few gems read:

  • “Obey first, then ask me why, and I’ll be glad to explain.” pg 136
  • Too much is TOO MUCH . pgs 110-111
  • One simple comment or act can create change.  pg 152
  • Take the time to teach them, even at a young age, how to run a home. Chapter “Doing Real Things”
  • Have boys academically compete against themselves for an edible treat. pg 111
  • Many suggestions on encouraging bravery in speaking comfortably in front of others. Chapter “Who’s In Charge Here?
  • Dads should diligently refrain from oogling women if they want their boys to remain pure. pg 205

I have already been practicing some of the Youngs’ tips and am pleased with the results. My teen is more respectful and my younger boy has been enjoying more freedom with cooking on his own.

These are my dearly loved sons. I plan to read this book again and again to remind me of my job-producing strong Christian male leaders unashamed of the Truth. I pray they continue to run the race on to victory in Jesus where someday they will hear “Well done, thou good and faithful servant”. One proud mama will be in tears.
