About the book

This book altered the whole approach to boys in government policy, schools, and of course at home - the first parenting book ever to be a number one bestseller in Australia, with more than a million copies sold it is still hugely popular even in countries like Brazil, Japan, South Africa, and Northern Ireland.

Covers both the social forces and the biological and hormonal forces that make a boy what he is, and how to use these to help boys be safe, caring, energetic, and in love with life.

Boys worldwide have three times the death rate of girls, and are disappearing from higher education, while girls do better and better. This book is incredibly timely, and much loved by parents.
The three stages of boyhood. What mothers can do. What fathers can do. What if you are a single mother ? Finding a boy-friendly school. Boys and sport. Boys and sex.

Ideal for mothers who are just not sure if they understand boys. For fathers who want to play an active role in raising their son.
