RAISING REAL MEN {TIMBERDOODLE REVIEW}

I am a girl. I have never been a boy. Ever since I can remember, I have always been a girl which sometimes makes raising boys not necessarily difficult, but it is different. Everything I hold near and dear to me in my thinking as a GIRL has to be set aside as I try to get into the minds of my little boys so I can allow them to be what God created them to be; BOYS!

When I think to walk around, they might think to jump over or jump off of that same obstacle. When I think to step back because of fear, their curiosity and sense to protect might cause them to inch a little closer to check everything out. Boys and girls are different and when it comes to raising them, the sooner you understand that fact, the better job you will do raising a boy so he can become the real man he is meant to be.

Raising Real Men – Surviving, Teaching, and Appreciating Boys is the latest from Hal and Melanie Young who are the parents of two daughters and six sons. They understand the fact that raising girls is very different than raising boys. The Youngs also understand the importance of raising Godly men and they share their experiences of raising their six sons noting the mistakes they made as well as the lessons they learned.

If you have sons, then you will be able to relate to the many examples they give showing the differences boys have and their God designed nature that is responsible for their behavior that often gets “shushed,” or is met with an eye if disapproval, or sometimes receives a shaking of the head due to not understanding why they do the things they do.

Why do boys love guns and other weapons so much?

Should boys really do “woman’s work?”

Is having a competitive nature healthy?

Raising Real Men addresses those issues and answers those questions while also reminding parents that there is not a blurred line between the sexes. We should not raise our sons to be less than the men they will be or try to make them more sensitive or more effeminate because it is socially correct and acceptable. On the other hand, we should also not shy away from teaching them domestic responsibility, leadership skills, financial stewardship and other skills that will help them with the many decisions they will have to make as adults and later as heads of households that will affect their family.

I will say that this book has made me step back and look more closely at how I am raising my sons. Maybe, I need to allow them to figure some things out by themselves without me trying to “save them from themselves”…Maybe, I need to let them stray a little further from me and not worry about them “losing their way”…Maybe, I need to just let them be boys and guide them on their path to becoming real men.

If you have boys like mine, then you are going to want to do everything you can to help yours grow up to be REAL MEN too. Reading Raising Real Men is a great way to start. Read a sample chapter to see if this book might be for you. Also, read more reviews of this item by fellow review members.

    Love this. I neeedd this yesterday when I was banging my head on my desk and then complaining about how hard it is to be a “stay at home Mom” with a job. Ugh. Perfection will not be found at my house.
