Print
Since the publication of Raising Cain, Michael Thompson has been on the road continuously, speaking to parent and teacher groups, education leaders, and public policy makers about the inner lives of boys. Wherever he has gone, parents have opened up their lives and aired their questions and concerns.Now, in "Speaking of Boys", Michael Thompson, with Teresa Barker, has compiled a sampling of the most-asked and most heartfelt questions about boys -- and his answers. Topics include friendship, sports, money, grades, peer pressure, electronics and video games, cruelty, body image, death and illness, divorce, depression, ADD and ADHD, dating, and drugs. In his responses, Thompson offers not only his own insights but those of many parents and teachers who have shared their thoughts with him.

Though I'm skeptical of the premise of one universal boy experience, Raising Cain certainly made me aware of certain social and emotional pressures that my son will likely face, many of which I was never aware of because, well, I've never been a boy. I look forward to hearing my husband's perspective on the book, as well as discussing with him the healthy emotional habits we want to create together as parents and encourage in our son.
