The Little Boy Book: A Guide to the First Eight Years (Mass Market Paperbound)
"One of the only child-raising books that does justice to the importance of genetics and heredity...jam-packed with valuable information for every parent."
Dr. Fitzhugh Dodson, Author of HOW TO PARENT, HOW TO FATHER, and HOW TO DISCIPLINE WITH LOVE
Complete, authoritative, and sensible, this excellent resource draws on four years of research, and numerous studies and interviews, made public here for the first time. From the day you bring him home through his crucial elementary school years, you will learn: how boys develop differently than girls; where "male aggressiveness" originates; how working moms and their little boys can have a good relationship; and much more.
