Making time to talk with your son is one thing; knowing what to talk about is another.
Every parent of a teenage boy knows there are certain conversations they must have with their son, but they often put them off—or worse, don’t have them at all—because they simply don’t know where to start. Written by Dr. Tim Hawkes, one of Australia’s top educators, Ten Conversations You Must Have with Your Son offers a practical, accessible, and invaluable way to get these discussions started.
Dr. Hawkes provides parents with the essential information they need to negotiate their way through what can often be very difficult territory about the why, what, and how of ten key topics: love, identity, values, leadership, achievement, sex, money, health, living together, and resilience. Each topic has its own chapter and offers ideas about different ways for parents to share their own experiences and knowledge with their boys.
Having been a headmaster for twenty-five years and an internationally recognized expert in the field of raising and educating boys, Dr. Hawkes is in a unique position to know what goes on inside the minds of teenage boys. He understands what they need to know to best prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities, challenges, and demands that life will make on them.
Ten Conversations You Must Have with Your Son is a great guide for anyone needing help in preparing a son for adulthood.
