How to Raise a Boy by Michael C. Reichert
From The Wall Street Journal:
"It's a challenging time to parent a boy. Moms and dads worry about everything from hypermasculine cultural stereotypes to how to talk about sex in the #MeToo era.
A new book, "How to Raise a Boy: The Power of Connection to Build Good Men," suggests there's good reason for concern. Author Michael C. Reichert cites research showing that boys seek help from health care or school staff at rates nearly twice those of girls; they lag behind girls in social and behavioral skills; and they are the primary recipients of disciplinary sanctions and medication prescriptions.
Dr. Reichert, the founding director of the Center for the Study of Boys' and Girls' Lives at the University of Pennsylvania, aims to provide a road map for parents of sons. A clinical and research psychologist specializing in boys and men for more than 30 years, Dr. Reichert has worked both in the juvenile justice system and with boys in some of the most affluent communities in the country."
