Amazing book! I won't be re-listing this one b/c it's a book I will read over and over while raising my son and daughters. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a son or daughter or anyone who wants to better understand their husband or father. Even if you don't have any boys, this book is highly useful for raising daughters.

There is a lot of useful information in this book, but there was some advice/opinions of Dr Dobson that I did not personally agree with. I did glean some useful tips for raising my one son out of five children!
With many years of clinical experience, Dr. Dobson recognizes that our boys are under attack in this culture. ( Look at how men are portrayed in commercials even.) He has great words to encourage parents to protect and prepare boys to live successfully in this world - and the next! I have bought many copies to give to new parents and have taught the companion course - good stuff!
I read this book prior to getting it through PBS but not this copy yet. I wanted to own it as I thought it would be a good book to read every few years with some great tips and reminders as I -a mom - raise my boy through different stages.
