What Your Son Isn’t Telling You by Michael Ross and Susie Shellenberger is an insightful look into the world of teen boys. Raising teens can be difficult and, because boys often do not open up to their parents, they can be especially hard to understand. The topics covered in this helpful book include bullying, anger and depression, safety in cyberspace, dating and lust issues, communication, and more. The book includes many quotes and personal stories from boys that make it “real,” and gives solid advice to parents about helping their boys in each area.
My son is a bit past the teen years, but I still found the book helpful to see somewhat into the male mind and to understand the issues that teen boys struggle with. I wish I had had access to this book when he was thirteen and we were just beginning this journey.
I received a free review copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers.
