Raising Boys by Design Review

Raising Boys By Design by Gregory Jantz and Michael Gurian caught my eye because it combined science and Christianity in the discussion of raising sons. I'm really intrigued by the how and why behind brain development and loved that one of the authors was writing from a Christian perspective. 

The authors do a great job of detailing the different stages of development and how you can help them succeed in watch one. Like other reviews, I would agree that it is a slow read, but very informative. I got the most out of their HERO model. A HERO is one who values honor, enterprise, responsibility, and originality. Jantz and Gurian say, "This unique resource combines the latest research in brain science with timeless truths from the Bible to reveal the deepest needs shared by every boy of faith while also leading you to fresh insights for honoring the unique personality, talents, and God-given design of your son in particular."

I would recommend this book to all parents, teachers, children and youth workers. It's a very thorough resource for someone who wants to know scientifically why boys act the way they do and Raising Boys By Design gives them a blueprint for raising boys in a biblically sound way. 

*I received this book for free from WaterBrooks Multnomah in exchange for an honest review.*
