Have you ever browsed through a family photo collection and seen photos of a boy taken over the course of many years, from babyhood through to young manhood? If you have, you’ll know that boys don’t grow up in a smooth way. They go in surges—looking the same for a year or two, then suddenly seeming to change overnight. And that’s only on the outside. On the inside, great changes are happening, too. But developing maturity and character aren’t as automatic as physical growing. A boy can get stuck. Everyone knows at least one man who is large in body but small in mind or soul. He just hasn’t developed as a mature person. Such men are everywhere—they might be rich, powerful, a president, or a tycoon, but you look at them and think, Yep, still a boy. And not a very nice one
     Boys don’t grow up well if you don’t help them. You can’t just shovel in cereal, provide clean T-shirts, and expect him to one day wake up as a man! You need to follow a certain program. The trick is to understand what is needed—and when.
     Luckily, boys have been around for a very long time. Every society in the world has encountered the challenge of raising boys and has come up with solutions. The three stages of boyhood are timeless and universal. Native Americans, the San tribe of the Kalahari, Australian Aborigines—all knew about these stages. We know them from science—hormone studies and brain imaging. And from observation—whenever I talk about these stages with parents, they say, “That’s right!” because the stages match their experience. They just hadn’t thought about it before.

Here are the stages at a glance:
1. The first stage of boyhood is from birth to six—the span of time when the boy primarily belongs to his mother. He is “her” boy, even though his father may play a very big role, too. The aim at this age is to give strong love and security, and to “switch a boy on” to life as a warm and welcoming experience.

2. The second stage includes the years from six to
when the boy, out of his own internal drives, starts wanting to learn to be a man, and looks more and more to his father for interest and activity. (Though his mother remains very involved, and the wider world is beckoning, too.) The purpose of this stage is to build competence and skill while developing kindness and playfulness, too—becoming a balanced person. This is the age when a boy becomes happy and secure about being male.

3. Finally, the years from fourteen to adult—when the boy needs input from male mentors if he is to complete the journey into being fully grown up. Mom and Dad step back a little, but they must organize some good mentors in their son’s life or he will have to rely on an ill-equipped peer group for his sense of self. The aim is for your son to learn skills, responsibility, and self-respect by joining more and more with the adult community.

Please note: These stages do not indicate a sudden or sharp shift from one parent to another. 
It’s not like there’s the mom stage, then the dad stage, and then the mentor stage. For instance, an involved dad can do a huge amount from birth onward, or even take the role a mother usually has if need be. And a mother doesn’t quit when a boy reaches six. Quite the opposite. The stages indicate a shift of emphasis: that the father comes to the fore more from six through fourteen, and the importance of mentors increases from fourteen onward. In a sense, it’s about adding on the new ingredients at each stage. 

The three stages help us know what to do. For example, it’s clear that fathers of boys from six to fourteen must not be busy workaholics or absent themselves emotionally or physically from the family. If they do, this will certainly damage their boys. (Yet most fathers of the twentieth century did just that—as many of us remember from our own childhoods.)
The stages tell us that we need to bring in extra help from the community when our sons are in their mid-teens—the role that family members (uncles and grandfathers) or the tradesman-apprentice relationship used to take. Too often, teenagers move outward into the big world but no one is there to catch them, and they spend their teens and early adulthood in a dangerous halfway stage with only peers to depend on. 
     It’s probable that many problems with boys’ behavior—poor school motivation, depression, and getting into strife with the law (drunk driving, fighting, crime, and so on)—develop because we haven’t known about these stages and haven’t provided the right human ingredients at the right times. The stages are so important that we must look at them in more detail and decide how to respond. That’s what we’ll do now.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting and useful 4. März 2014
Von WestMetroMommy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
So, I have a young son and, sometimes, he's kind of a mystery to me. With my daughter, I knew what I was getting into. Not only did I used to be a little girl, but I have several nieces who I've seen through childhood (I do also have a nephew, but he grew up far from us and we only saw him a couple of times a year). When I found this book, I thought it might shed some light on what was going on with my little guy.

And, yes, it did shed some light for me. Biddulph goes through biological, mental, social, and emotional development of boys. I will say that there wasn't anything that was surprising about the social or emotional development sections, but I did learn quite a bit about biological development of young boys--things that are demystifying my son.

Biddulph also includes a number of "Stories from the Heart" to illustrate some of his points. These vary in usefulness. Some are very enlightening, but some seem rather unneeded or incomplete. Still, I didn't feel that even the least effective of these negatively impacted my experience with this book.

I will admit that this is the first parenting book I've read that focuses on boys. I can't compare it to any other work out there. I can, however, say that this book was of value to me as a parent of a son and I would recommend it to other parents.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Some Important Insight 20. Juni 2014
Von Steve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
While at points a lot of common sense rules on parenting were covered, this book definitely provides its fair share of unique and important insight as well. After reading this book I have been able to gauge what the childhood experience was like for a lot of people that I meet and understand them a little bit better. I would not rely solely on this book as a standalone but would also read Children Are From Heaven by John Gray because it covers the different types of temperaments for children and how to approach them.

Raising Boys
Why Boys are Different and How to Help them become happy and well balanced men
Steve Biddulph
Published by:Ten Speed Press

I have always been a fan of Steve Biddulph’s very practical books for parents. This one is no different. This vastly popular book has been updated into a third edition.

Raising Boys considers how boys differ from girls, their three stages of boyhood, from birth to preparing for adulthood. It goes on to discuss how to navigate through risk areas for boys.
It examines the relationship between mothers and sons, and fathers and sons. How they are different, and how they develop.
Challenging issues of dealing with testosterone, schooling, sexuality, and sport are dealt with in practical measures.
This book will give you the strategies to raise a happy, healthy, well-adjusted son.
Highly recommended for every parent.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book to read about your boy. 4. Juli 2014
Von Goofy Country Mommelia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I bought this book for my sister in law after reading this book. I was hoping that this book would help provide advice when little boys make you feel frazzled. I know this book helped me.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely Helpful! 20. Juli 2014
Von Felic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found the information in this book logical and helpful. A lot of the points resonated with issues I am currently dealing with, with my own son. I appreciated how they touched on the different stages of boyhood from small child to teenager. The theories backed up my own and will help us withstand how schools try to punish boys for being boys.
