about this book

In Boys Should Be Boys, Dr. Meg Meeker, who has spent more than twenty years practicing pediatric and adolescent medicine, provides parents and educators with helpful information on how to encourage boys to become the mature, confident, and thoughtful men of tomorrow. Topics addressed include: why rules and boundaries are crucial—and why boys feel lost without them; how the outdoors is still the best playground; the pitfalls parents face when talking to their sons; how to address moody and rebellious behavior, and more.

Praise for Boys Should Be Boys:

“Filled with inspirational vignettes, Boys Should Be Boys empowers parents to stay involved and protect their sons’ innocence. It’s a wonderfully written and eye-opening book—a must-read.” —Neil Bernstein, Ph.D., author of There When He Needs You
