Raising Confident Boys: 100 Tips for Parents and Teachers

Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer, Author Fisher Books $13 (224p) ISBN 978-1-55561-320-4
Like girls, boys are enjoying more freedom than ever, having been at least partly liberated from a traditional masculinity. Yet statistics show that they also have more behavior problems than girls have, as well as higher suicide rates. In addition, they are losing their academic edge over girls. Like girls, boys can only take advantage of their new freedoms if they are raised to believe in themselves, and in Raising Confident Boys, Hartley-Brewer explains how parents and teachers can help.
