Synopsis: Complete, authoritative, and sensible, The Little Boy Book draws on four years of research, and numerous studies and interviews, to address the special needs of raising a boy today. Two writers, both parents of boys and one an early childhood educator, guide you from the day you bring your "little blue bundle" home through his crucial elementary school years. Inside, you'll learn how:

¸  Boys develop differently from girls--and why
¸  "male aggressiveness" originates--and where
¸  Order and direction can be painlessly established in your young son's life
¸  Working moms and their little boys can have a good relationship
¸  Traumas like divorce affect boys differently
¸  Your son will respond to love and discipline
¸  And much more

Raising a boy is a unique experience--and here's the guidebook that explores and explains not just your growing child but your very own son!
