ARC Review: Raising Boys

Raising Boys, Third Edition: Why Boys Are Different--and How to Help Them Become Happy and Well-Balanced Men - Steve Biddulph

The formatting of the e-book didn't translate well with my kindle -- different text sizes, weird formatting, tables and graphics missing -- so I hope they fix that before publication or else I recommend people get a paper version of this book. As a lesbian mom raising two boys, I'm trying to read up on some of the special issues and challenges I can expect, especially where my kids don't have a daddy. I liked that this book was sensitive to the fact that there are a lot of single moms and other fatherless families out there, so that while the book stressed the importance of bonding with a father figure especially in middle childhood, it had tips for those of us for whom the father figure in question is not going to be the actual father. 


Much of this book wasn't yet applicable to my situation (my boys are still toddlers), but I think I'll invest in a paper copy and refer back to it as my kids grow, because there are some useful tips and information for different ages.
