Product Description:

The Way of Boys by renowned psychologist Dr. Anthony Rao is an important wake-up call to the dangers of over-medicating our male children and our current tendency to treat their active boyhood as an illness. Dr. Rao raises a much-needed alarm in this essential volume that belongs in every parent’s collection alongside Raising Cain by Michael Thompson. In these time when many parents, concerned about ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, and bipolar disorder, may be dangerously misinterpreting their young sons’ healthy, normal development process, The Way of Boys is must reading. 

Review:

“Rao deftly admonishes quick fix psychiatrists and anxious parents to more patiently deal with children’s growth and problems even if their youngsters are not developing at the speed of light...Rao’s practical book...is filled with case by case examples of children trying to find their way.” (Global Province: The Martketplace of Ideas)

“Parents are often overhwhelmed when struggling with the behavior of growing boys. Dr. Anthony Rao provides the kind of customized wisdom that comes from decades of clinical practice and—most important—success for boys at home and at school. This book is an invaluable contribution for those families in need.” (Jerome Groopman, MD, Racanati professor, Harvard Medical School; author of How Doctors Think)

“This book offers clear understanding of the various and varied ways boys grow and develop into healthy, well-adjusted adults. Many of the modern obstacles to this development—and the parental confusion they cause—fall away after one reads Dr. Rao’s compassionate, specific, problem-solving book.” (Michael Gurian, author of The Purpose of Boys)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Dr. Anthony Rao passionately argues that ever-increasing numbers of boys are being treated and medicated for problems they simply don t have. In this practical and accessible guide to the distinct challenges of raising young boys into good men, Dr. Rao urges parents, educators, pediatricians, psychologists, and other developmental experts to re-evaluate and radically alter how we deal with our youngest boys. This book offers a clear-eyed examination of the cultural and psychological factors that have created our current approach to rearing young boys. It shows that often, what seems to be a developmental setback is really just the storm before the calm, a temporary lapse in previously acquired skills that precedes a major cognitive leap forward and teaches how to parent sons with respect for their natural development right from the start, which gives them the best shot at growing into confident and healthy men ready to make their unique contributions to the world.
