Summary

Playing off the themes in the Caldecott Medal-winning children's book Where the Wild Things Are, this informative, practical, and encouraging guide will help parents guide boys down the path to healthy and authentic manhood.
Wild Things addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual parts of a boy, written by two therapists who are currently engaged in clinical work with boys and their parents and who are also fathers raising five sons. This book contains chapters such as "Sit Still! Pay Attention!", "Deficits and Disappointments", and "Rituals, Ceremonies, and Rites of Passage".

Excellent, absolute gold!

As the father of 3 boys this has been a life changer for me. A wonderful blend of psychology, neuroscience, experience, wisdom as dads, counsellors and pastors. Performance was fantastic, humorous and warm, with feeling. I have already recommended to several other friends and will buy hard copy to refer to much in the future. Thank you.
