From the back cover: A practical guide to equipping the hearts and minds of boys without breaking or losing your own.
I’m an only child, a motherless adult, and I’ve been blessed with boys … two amazing human beings I often don’t understand and feel ill-equipped to lead into adulthood because I have no one to turn to for advice.   Thank goodness for Hal and Melanie Young’s Raising Real Men!  With six sons of their own, they’ve already been down this road and share their experiences and thoughts.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to, respectfulness, homeschooling, life skills, finances, marriage and family life, chores, play time, temptation, role models, parental authority, and selecting a college.  The Youngs share glimpses into their own family life to provide examples from which readers come away with a treasure trove of ideas for incorporating with their own boys.  My two boys are most of the time like night and day which exhausts me mentally and physically.  After reading Raising Real Men, I’ve come to appreciate my youngest’s zeal for life and hearty enthusiasm as well as my oldest’s insecurities and perfectionism tendencies.  I feel much more prepared with methods for dealing with our most troubling issues and appreciate being ahead of the game with knowledge in matters that have not come up yet due to my boys’ ages.  All parents of boys should have this great book and refer to it over and over again.

As a member of Timberdoodle’s Blogger Review Team, I was supplied with a complimentary copy of this title in order to provide an honest review.  I did not receive any monetary compensation, and I was not required to write a positive review.  Any opinions expressed are my own.

    I wouldn’t worry about spilleng for a while yet. Please don’t get caught up in trying to keep up with the public school kids that you know. This will only discourage you and your child. Homeschooling allows us to move at the childs pace, don’t forget that. Read to him/her everyday. Read all different kinds of things not just baby books. Newspapers, recipes, flyers,,, what ever you have. Make your home a place where learning happens even if you aren’t trying. Surround yourself and your child with maps, puzzles, blocks, books, educational board games everything you can think of. Reading will come with minimal effort if you make learning fun and relaxed.
