Boys Should Come With This Book

Boys confound me. As I’m sure you have guessed by now, if you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time is that we have not been blessed with sons. We have two gorgeous daughters. So you may be asking yourself, what kind of books is Crissyanna reading that boys need to come with them? And why?

Well, let me tell you…I’m sure you realize that we don’t live in a totally segregated society. I’m married to a man, I am the daughter to a man, I have brothers-in-law, I am around boys at church and elsewhere. I used to teach school and had boys in my class. We also do hope to be blessed with sons one day and I think I should be prepared for when that day arrives.

So, when the opportunity came from Timberdoodle to read Raising Real Men by Hal and Melanie Young, I decided to take it. I am so glad I did.

The Youngs discuss how it is important that we raise boys to be men one day. That we take care not to coddle them, to raise them to accept responsibility not only for themselves (giving more and more as they are capable of handling it) but to also be prepared to be able to support a wife and family. To train them to be dependable, honorable and God-fearing. They discuss the importance of training them to be respectful to women.

I really appreciated how the Youngs backed up their conclusions with scripture. They have the experience to back up their writing (with six sons of their own) and they do know their topic quite well. I will say, when I was a school teacher I did read books on how to raise boys, what to do with boys and such and this book is by far the best, most well written of any books on this subject matter that I have read, hands down. I wish it was available back when I taught school and as a resource I could have recommended to my male pupils’ parents. Yes, it is that good. I have to suggest that anyone with sons, or who may potentially have sons (be around boys, get sons-in-law) that this book is an absolute must read. I am so glad that I have read this book even without any sons on the horizon for us. I can better relate to to the boys at church, when I substitute for Sunday School now and when I’m babysitting them (which I seem to do often).

And it is my fervent prayer that our daughters’ husbands are being raised in a manner that teaches them how to be men. I hope their parents have found this book and will do their best to raise responsible husbands for our girls and our future grandchildren (if the Lord tarries).

So please, get a copy of this book for yourself and read it. It will give you much to think about in the raising up of the generations to come to be Godly, honorable men. If you are looking for other parenting helps, Timberdoodle can help with that too. And while you’re at it, check them out on Facebook.

As a member of Timberdoodle’s Blogger Review Team I received a free copy of Raising Real Men in exchange for a frank and unbiased review. All opinions are mine and mine alone and no other compensation was received.
