How do you raise boys to men in a world where trouble beckons at every turn? How do you make sure they learn the ′right′ lessons, stay out of danger, find a path to follow? How do you ensure they′ll be OK?

Author Celia Lashlie has some of the answers. After years working in the prison service, she knows what can happen when boys make the wrong choices. She also knows what it′s like to be a parent - she raised a son on her own and feared for his survival. As a crucial part of the NZ Good Man Project, she talked to 180 classes of boys throughout the country. Her insights into what boys need - and what parents can do to help them - are ground-breaking.

In this honest, no-nonsense and best-selling book, Celia Lashlie reveals what goes on inside the world of boys, and that it is an entirely different world from that of girls. With clarity and insight, she offers parents - especially mothers - practical and reassuring advice on raising their boys to become good, loving, articulate men.

About The Author

Celia Lashlie was the first woman prison officer to work in a male prison in New Zealand, and went on to become manager of Christchurch Women′s Prison. She has a degree majoring in anthropology and Maori and works in a freelance capacity as a social issues and special education consultant. Celia lives in Wellington.

          This is a great book for both Mums & Dads with Boys - it really gives a great incite into what our boys will be challenged with and how we as parents can understand and help
