2002 Gold Medallion Award winner! With so much confusion about the role of men in our society, it's no wonder so many parents and teachers are at a loss about how to bring up boys. Our culture has vilified masculinity and, as a result, boys are suffering. Parents, teachers, and others involved in shaping the character of boys have many questions. In Bringing Up Boys, Dr. James Dobson, America's most trusted authority on family issues, tackles these questions and offers advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles. Bringing Up Boys --a must-read book for parents, teachers, social workers, youth leaders, counselors--anyone involved in the challenge of turning boys into good men. The audio book is read by Wayne Shepard and punctuated by original music.

He definitely makes some good points in this book about the importance and the need for turning our boys into great men. Unfortunately its something that is undervalued in this day and age..And we so desperately need good male leaders for the future families of our country.
