Why are boys so different? Why would a trip to the garbage dump be such a highlight in a boy's life? What do boys need to learn in order to become good men? A mother's influence on her sons is unique and valuable, but still sometimes moms don't understand what makes their boys tick. They want to help their sons grow up to become men of honor and integrity, but that's a tremendous challenge.

With refreshing honesty and a man's insight, author Rick Johnson offers the advice, understanding, and support every mom is looking for when it comes to raising godly sons. Using extensive research and humorous personal experiences, he addresses tough issues, such as communication, discipline, sexuality, and respect. Mothers, including single moms as well as grandmothers and teachers, will find wise counsel and reassurance in this practical and helpful book.

    " This should be called "mothers should find a proper male role model for their son" because that's pretty much what Rick Johnson repeatedly implies chapter after chapter. There are some great quotables and guidelines, but most of the reading is "why boys need a man in their life". "

    " Very interesting facts in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angel | 2/4/2014

    " Really good book that brought out points I hadn't thought of with my sons. Some stereotypes throughout but only to make a point, I believe. Will be a re-read in the near future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolina | 2/2/2014

    " Useful tips for mothers of boys "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marnie | 2/1/2014

    " Read more out of need than out of enjoyment - good learning though! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary Dawn | 1/20/2014

    " Felt like I was being proselytized to. And don't agree with his stated belief that boys are better at math and science than girls by nature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suz | 1/18/2014

    " This book is an excellent take on raising little boys AND I found that using the material here works with the big men too!! Great stories and very practical. A must read for all women! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taylor | 1/17/2014

    " Not great lots of stereotypes but some kernels of wisdom in there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Traci | 1/17/2014

    " Really, just OK. I was expecting some specific insights on mother-son relationships, but really anything here is for parents in general. Some anecdotes didn't seem too relevant to the point at hand, and the bulk of the book was a checklist of things that should be taught to boys without a whole lot of guidance on ways it might be done. Overall, it's a needed topic and a good concept, but didn't really meet my expectations. It also seems to be targeted to single moms as an inspiration to them, which I think is really vital, but much of the advice also seems to be "find a good male role model for your boy." Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's not so helpful to a single mom trying to raise boys while making a living and overcoming her own personal heartaches and frustrations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 10/5/2013

    " Nice and good things to remember/think about!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angelacannon | 9/5/2013

    " I am using this book as a go to when times get tough. I especially like the advice on what boys enjoy doing. I also found the advice, when feeling like a distance is rising between you, to ask your son to help you and then let him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 8/1/2013

    " I grew up with only a sister so this book helped me to more fully understand boys, I learned a lot from it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle Johnson | 6/22/2013

    " This book is written more for single moms. I didn't find much useful info on raising my boys. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luvmyboys | 3/1/2013

    " I really enjoyed reading this book, as a single mother I a in a foreign land when it comes to raising my boys..any help is a good thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 2/28/2013

    " I liked this book overall. Like all parenting books, take it works for you from it. A couple things I didn't agree with, but for the most part, I found it interesting & will re-read it in the future. While not LDS, I found many of his values/beliefs were consistent with mine. "

    " This is a great book for any woman who has a man in her life (it explaines how men think and why they do certain things) but especially for single mom's of boys. It is fun an easy to read and gives real and practical advice. "

    " This is a great book! Especially to mothers to remind us to let our boys do wild things and fail rather than try to always protect so much.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luvmyboys | 3/27/2008

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 3/17/2008

    " I debated giving this only one star. Not my cup of tea, but then again, I don't think I'm Rick Johnson's target audience. I mean, I don't think I am over-protective and I let and even encourage James to rough-house, but that's not the same as thinking toy guns and shoving are okay. "
