The best part of Dr. Dobson's book Bringing Up Boys is that it is full of wisdom that is severely absent in today's society. I really appreciate being able to glean it from him. I especially appreciated how he pointed out different ways that society has had a very strong negative influence on parenting, our view of men, and more. As a Christian this is such a helpful book for a parent of one or more boys. The only drawback that I found to this book was that there was substantial amounts of the book that are not applicable to me as I only have one boy and he is not even two years old yet. While reading the book I thought that it would be the most relevant to parents of boys in elementary school - before they start to hit puberty. However, I still think this is an excellent book and is one that I will likely reread and reference throughout my son's childhood.
This is A Must Have book. Even if a man doesn't have boys this books helps understand himself, the reasons and roots why men do what the do. I like this book so much I am going to keep it and reread it again and again. This is not something you borrow from library. You better buy this book as this is a good investment. It helps raise children.
