Our daughters are growing up with dreams of their own, and SUDDENLY they are asking the question - "Where are the men who will be the good husbands, the good providers, the good fathers?" Why have boys suddenly (since 1992) become much more prone to failure in school, disinterest in real life, they are flaky in their relationships, and in disinterested when it comes to finding and keeping a good job? Many guys in their late twenties STILL feel entitled to their mother's constant help with meals and laundry, and they refuse to grow up.
What happened in the early nineties that has begun to change the way the brains of boys develop, causing them to shirk at manhood and choose a life of self indulgence and immaturity? Whose fault is it?
How do we keep this from happening to our sons? What can parents do to rescue their sons from the fate of over 50% of American men who still depend on momma in their twenties?
I am reading a book called "6 Ways to Keep the Good in Your Boy" by Bob and Dannah Gresh, and I am finding some incredible answers! Here's the deal...
God created boys to become men who are good. Unfortunately most of them are too busy playing Call of Duty to actually have a real life call of duty. As a mom, you have a unique role in equipping your son to stand against a culture that wants to strip him of his masculinity. Joined by her husband Bob Gresh, bestselling author Dannah Gresh blends thorough analysis of the latest research and trends that impact your son, answering questions like:
- Are video games okay?
- When should I talk to him about porn?
- How can I raise a good son if his dad isn't involved?
- When should I talk about sex?
- What do I do about aggressive girls?
