Meg Meeker, M.D., acclaimed author of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters, now turns to an equally powerful relationship in the family: the one between mother and son. From the moment a mother holds her newborn son, his eyes tell her that she is his world. But often, as he grows up, the boy who needs her simultaneously pushes her away. Calling upon thirty years of experience as a pediatrician, Meg Meeker, M.D., a highly sought after national speaker, assistant professor of clinical medicine, and mother of four, shares the secrets that every mother needs to know in order to strengthen—or rebuild—her relationship with her son. Boys today face unique challenges and pressures, and the burden on mothers to guide their boys through them can feel overwhelming. This empowering book offers a road map to help mothers find the strength and confidence to raise extraordinary sons by providing encouragement, education, and practical advice about • the need for mothers to exercise courage and be bolder and more confident about advising and directing their boys • the crucial role mothers play in expressing love to sons in healthy ways so they learn to respect and appreciate women as they grow up • the importance of teaching sons about the values of hard work, community service, and a well-developed inner life • the natural traps mothers of boys often fall into—and how to avoid them • the need for a mother to heal her own wounds with the men in her life so she can raise her son without baggage and limitations • the best ways to survive the moments when the going gets tough and a mom’s natural ways of communicating—talking, analyzing, exploring—only fuel the fire When a mother holds her baby boy for the first time, she also instinctively knows something else: If she does her job right and raises her son with self-esteem, support, and wisdom, he will become the man she knows he was meant to be. Praise for Strong Mothers, Strong Sons “Solid, practical advice for women on how to properly nurture their sons.”—Kirkus Reviews Praise for Meg Meeker, M.D. Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters “Dr. Meeker’s conclusions are timely, relevant, and often deeply moving.

Nicholi, Jr., M.D., professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School “Reassuring and challenging . . . a helpful road map for concerned fathers [that] tackles difficult issues.”—National Review Boys Should Be Boys “If you want to raise a boy you’ll be proud of, read Boys Should Be Boys.”—Dave Ramsey, author of The Total Money Makeover “Filled with inspirational vignettes, Boys Should Be Boys empowers parents to stay involved and protect their sons’ innocence. It’s a wonderfully written and eye-opening book—a must-read.”—Neil Bernstein, Ph.D., author of There When He Needs You The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers “Offers practical ways to help you let go of ‘mom guilt’ in order to become a happier, healthier woman.”—Parent & Child “Just about any mom, or dad, can find useful wisdom in this book.”—Associated Press From the Trade Paperback edition.

"Maggie is earthy and real, full of love and knowledge, especially on raising sons." - Steve Biddulph "Maggie's perspective on raising boys is spot on. She writes with humor and depth, providing insight and strategies for many of the most important issues facing moms. There is a lovely ease to her writing and a powerful honesty. I hope every mother of a son (and everyone else!) will read this book. The future of the world, to a great extent, depends on how we raise our boys." - Michael Gurian, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Wonder of Boys and Saving Our Sons If we can see the world through boys' eyes a little better, we will make different choices in the way we mother them… and we will find them less confusing, and love them more deeply. Mothers of sons are worried about raising their boys in a world where negative images of masculinity are front and centre of our media, almost every day. Not only that, but statistically our boys are still struggling in many ways. Even though we live in a time where we recognise that nothing in gender is fixed, it remains a fact that the influence of a mother on her son is massive. A mother of four sons herself, Maggie Dent draws on her personal experience - and over four decades work as a teacher, counsellor and now author and speaker - to help build understanding, empathy and compassion for our boys. Maggie shares her five key secrets that every mum needs to know and uses the voices of men she has worked with and surveyed to reveal what really matters in a boy's relationship with his mother and other mother figures. Maggie is one of Australia's most popular parenting authors and educators, and her seminars about boys have sold out all across Australia and in the UK. She is finally sharing her insights, her reflections, and (as always) her humour around mothering boys to help you be the mum your son needs you to be.

What Sport and Psychology Teach Us About Parenting ‘It’s no accident, I think, that tennis uses the language of life. Advantage, service, fault, break, love, the basic elements of tennis are those of everyday existence, because every match is a life in miniature.’ Andre Agassi Dr. Paul Gaffney has used his experience of working as a clinical and counselling psychologist with children, adults and families experiencing a wide range of problems, and with athletes and coaches striving for excellence, to write this book which will outline practical strategies for living better lives together. The book takes its lead from the stories of inspirational sportspeople and teams. These are supported by, and linked to, psychological knowledge and practice. Sport can reflect all that is good and bad in people. We have seen fabulous success achieved following great dedication, world class performances reflecting incredible skill and a win at all costs attitude leading to, in some cases, cheating and doping. In sport as in life, we can experience the entire rollercoaster of emotions: elation, heartbreak, exhaustion, vindication, hopefulness or helplessness. This book aims to help parents and families face up to and deal with 20 difficult questions, and provide clear advice, direction and resources. It will show you practical things you can try and idea for further reading and information to help you and your family.
