A Man In The Making
Cafe Lily's Review:
This was an excellent book and I highly recommend that ALL parents raising boys, read this. Each chapter focuses on a well known male (George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, John Wooden and more) and an attribute that he demonstrated during his life.
Virtues such as common sense, wisdom, compassion, integrity, vision and others, are explained and the author gives good suggestions on how to teach these to your son. In a society where young men are seriously lacking in strong male role models, this book encourages parents (especially fathers) to get involved and stay in tune with the young men they are raising.
After reading this book, I understood better how my teenage son might think or feel about certain things. It gave me some great insight on how to better communicate and address certain areas in his life.
