Raising Boys in the 21st Century by Steve Biddulph
First published in 1995, Raising Boys was an instant bestseller and to date has sold over a million copies world wide. The most popular book ever about raising boys is back, significantly updated to help raise sons in a world that offers gender equality, respect and a whole new kind of man, but is still haunted by toxic masculinity.
You’ll find cutting-edge science about the ‘physical fours’, the ‘emotional eights’ and how puberty can be turned into a positive time, along with hundreds of other practical tips for raising a son. No two boys are alike, and you have to get to know our own unique boy. The idea that ‘if we understand them, we can help them’ is what has made this book so well loved and trusted in over a million homes.
As one of Australia’s best-known psychologists for almost 30 years, Steve has introduced a generation of fathers into hands-on engagement with kids, and helped thousands of mothers gain confidence in their ability to raise sons well. He has worked with schools in 17 countries, and 130,000 parents have heard his unforgettable live talks. ‘Biddulph is electrifying’-Telegraph ‘Biddulph is a spellbinder’ – 60 Minutes
