This is the ultimate guide to raising the tween/teen boy in your life. It covers everything from relationships, social media, friendships, school, porn, drugs, video games, physical and mental changes. Dr Natterson helps parents navigate the tricky stage of puberty - when loud, r...ambunctious boys often turn into silent, uncommunicative beings who slink behind closed doors. She argues that it's up to parents to improve their communication with their son and help him prepare for life as an adult, armed with the knowledge needed to become a well-rounded human being. This book looks at the dramatic shifts boys face physically, mentally, emotionally and socially, filtered through the Dr Natterson's medical and child development lens. 'Decoding Boys debunks the widespread myth of the inscrutable teenage boy. Dr. Cara Natterson illuminates boys' inner lives, details the pressures they face from the outside world, and teaches parents how to effectively engage and support their adolescent sons. Decoding Boys is clear, wise, and eye-opening. If you're raising a boy, you need this brilliant book.' - Lisa Damour, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of Untangled and Under Pressure 'Decoding Boys is the ultimate guide to help you understand and raise your boys with acceptance and perspective. Reading it is like having an empathetic, really smart friend who totally gets what you are going through and is helpful every step of the way!' - Mallika Chopra, author of Living with Intent
