About those meltdowns, blowups, and one-word answers . . .
Some say that's just how boys are--prone to outbursts or sullenness. But what's behind these and other issues? Drawing from twenty-five years of counseling boys and working with parents, David Thomas sheds light on common emotional struggles, including anger, anxiety, and depression, and shares practical ways you can help your son be
Resourceful--equipped to work through his emotions in constructive ways
Aware--so that he better understands himself, including his strengths and weaknesses
Resilient--having the capacity to cope and feel competent
Empathetic--able to understand the feelings and experiences of others
Helpful also for grandparents, teachers, and anyone else who has a boy in their life, this book shows how a strong emotional foundation leads to a Christ-like sense of masculinity that will serve him well his whole life.
