A revised edition of the bestselling and practical guide to the issues parents face in raising sons--including sex, violence, homework, sports, the Internet, and more and how to best aid boys' development from birth to manhood.

Raising a happy, loving, responsible boy in today's world can be challenging.

In this third edition of his international best seller, Steve Biddulph looks at the most important issues in a boy's development from birth to manhood. With gentle humor and proven wisdom backed by decades as a family psychologist and father, he shows parents how to provide the firm, loving guidance that boys need.

Updates include information on mitigating the dangerous effects of online pornography, male specific hearing problems, and teen driving on boys.

Biddulph also discusses:

  • The three stages of boyhood, and how to help them go smoothly.
  • Testosterone! How it changes behavior and what to do about it.
  • How boys' brain development differs from girls'.
  • How to help boys cultivate a caring attitude toward sex.
  • The impact of competitive sports on boys, and how to ensure it stays positive.
  • Questions to assist in finding boy-friendly schools.
