How to raise your son to be the man you want him to be

For more than a decade, international specialist parent psychologist Megan de Beyer has held courses at many independent boys’ schools in SA, as well as the USA, UK and Australia. Strong Mothers – Strong Sons is a course designed to help those mums (read all of us!) who find parenting a teen boy stressful, challenging, confusing. And every now and then downright frightening; very often completely heart-breaking. Down-to-earth, honest, enlightening, the courses are massively helpful and popular.

Now Megan has put together her knowledge, advise and lessons into How to Raise A Man – the modern mother’s guide to parenting her teenage son. It’s crammed with everything from how to have better parenting conversations to crippling parenting mistakes we may be making to respecting the bro rules, along with handling anger (his and ours), things all boys must learn and how to change our parenting style. There’s a chapter of helping us decide what kind of mums we are, and information on all the issues that we have to face – sex and alcohol, addiction and porn, sexting and defiance (and for all of those who’re reading and thinking ‘not my boy’ … you’re probably wrong!).

If you’ve a teen, or an about-to-be-teen boy, we guarantee this will be the one book you won’t regret buying. Penguin, R230.
