Publisher's Summary

A word-of-mouth best seller which has become one of the best-loved and most-successful books in the parenting field. In this expanded and updated edition, Steve Biddulph shares and gives practical and honest advice to parents so they can recognise the different stages of boyhood and learn how to raise happy, confident, and kind young men. Boys need to be parented in a different way from girls with their own very special psychological and physical make-up. Home, society and education have failed boys badly - and these failures lead to unhappy men who cannot fully become happy, responsible, emotionally-confident adults.
While it is essential that boys spend more time learning about manhood from their fathers, Biddulph updates his classic to include helpful information for mothers and single mothers with baby boys. This extended edition explores some important topics:

How ADHD may be caused by stress in the first year of life
Whether boys should start school later than girls
Help for single mothers raising sons
How to choose a sport that does more good than harm
What we can do about boys and binge drinking
What science can tell us about teenage boys and driving - and how we can keep our sons safe
Raising Boys offers parents real-life situations, thought-provoking insights, humour, and help.
