I recently had a chance to review TEN CONVERSATIONS YOU MUST HAVE WITH YOUR SON: Preparing Our Sons for a Happy and Successful Life by experienced headmaster and internationally recognized parenting expert Dr. Tim Hawkes.The book draws on his experience to identify the primary obstacles typical in most boys' lives, and discusses how to engage in discussions that can address these topics. Topics include identity, leadership, relationships, success, sex, respect, and more.
This book honestly isn't just a good idea for parents of sons, but for anyone who has leadership over boys and young men - teachers, coaches, mentors. We all hope that young boys grow up to be responsible young men, but that doesn't just happen. It takes adults - primarily parents, but also other role models - investing time in educating them about good character. The book is a comprehensive read that touches on many aspects of life, providing guidelines that can help shape nearly every decision a young man has to make. It's easy to read, practical, and useful - a great gift for any parent of a son.
