Making time to talk with your son is one thing; knowing what to talk about is another.
Every parent of a teenage boy knows there are certain conversations they must have with their son. But too often they put them off - or don't have them at all - because they simply don't know where to start. Internationally recognised in the field of raising and educating boys, Dr Tim Hawkes provides practical, accessible and invaluable about how to get these discussions started.
Helping parents to negotiate their way through what can be difficult territory, Dr Hawkes explores the why, what and how of ten key topics: love, identity, values, leadership, achievement, sex, money, health, living together and resilience. For each topic, Dr Hawkes offers ideas about how parents can share their own experiences, values and knowledge with their sons.
This book will help you prepare your son for adulthood.

Comments about Ten Conversations You Must Have With Your Son:
Our son is eleven and with that comes a whole different set of emotions. This book helps us navigate the new and unpleasant, and helps us see our part in it all. This book is not just about the success of a son but a family.
