“Stuffed full of practical tips for teachers and parents alike . . . [that] will help you connect with, empower, and uplift the young men in your life.” —Becca Anderson, author of Badass Affirmations
A nationally recognized parenting expert and spokesperson for fathers, Will Glennon presents straightforward and well-researched ways both to nurture young men and, in turn, to teach them how to be nurturing. Well into the twenty-first century, it is alarming how few real solutions are available to teach boys how to effectively connect with and manage their feelings. Now Glennon provides practical and effective tools for raising emotionally aware and healthy boys. 200 Ways to Raise a Boy’s Emotional Intelligence offers support and heartfelt advice to everyone in a young man’s life—from parents and teachers to friends and classmates.
“This book argues against teasing, shaming, and all the other negative methods that have been employed—with a societal wink and nod—to shape young men. Instead, Will sees our boys as they are: complex, infinitely interesting, and capable of great strength—but only if their emotional complexity is respected.” —Richard Louv, international bestselling author of Last Child in the Woods
“Will Glennon’s simple, straightforward definitions of the problems facing parents, teachers, and boys and his practical solutions help us all find our way through the often bewildering maze that lies between the limiting cultural stereotypes and the full potential of the human male.” —Don and Jeanne Elium, authors of Raising a Son
