From video games to the Internet, technology and popular culture are having a profound effect on today's boys. Boys need guidance more than ever. But how can we help them do better in school? How can we keep the lines of communication open?

Raising Boys in a New Kind of World is a passionate call for greater empathy. The more we know about boys, the more realistic our expectations of them will be. We need to stop seeing normal boy behaviour as a problem and learn to understand a boy's need for movement, his unique learning styles, and his personal methods of communicating.

Michael Reist writes from the front lines. As a classroom teacher for more than 30 years and the father of three boys, he has seen first-hand the effects that changes in modern culture are having on boys. Raising Boys in a New Kind of World is an inspiring and entertaining collection of positive, practical advice on many topics, including discipline, homework, video games, and bullying, and provides numerous tips on how to communicate with boys.

    Timeless Advice for A New World

    This is the first parenting book I have read so avidly. It has opened my eyes and helped me to articulate what I have been feeling about raising and educating young children, especially boys, (my own and those in our extended family). Reist helped me pin-point my concerns about our current, antiquated school system, and that we need to focus on individual learning styles and not simply pigeon hole and label children simply in order to educate them en masse. My husband will read it next.
