    Raising Cain: Protecting The Emotional Life Of Boys

    By: Dan Kindlon

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    Adolescence is indisputably a turbulent time for both boys and girls. But statistics show that there is an overwhelming number of troubled boys - at high risk for depression and suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and loneliness. What do boys need that they're not getting? In this ground-breaking book, leading child psychologists Dan Kindlon and Michael Thompson cut through the glib rhetoric about 'boy biology' to show that there are sure ways for parents to help their sons travel the difficult road to manhood. Their practical and positive solutions to the problems that have plagued parents for years include:
    Talk to boys directly in their own language
    Recognize and accept their high activity levels
    Use discipline to guide and build character, not to punish
    Encourage them to control their anger by talking about their emotions
    Teach boys that there are many ways to be a man

    'Clearly and accessibly written, and suggest practical strategies to help parents and teachers'
