Review:

"Grant's knowledge and authority is tempered with grandfatherly love as he delivers a message of unconditional affirmation for boys" ( Junior)

"Insightful and inspirational - Ian Grant has a unique ability to cut through the jargon and give parents genuinely helpful, down-to-earth advice we can really use" ( Simon Dallow, Viva)

"I know from listener comments how much Ian's advice is valued, and as the father of two boys I have exploited that advice to advantage. It doesn't come any better" ( Leighton Smith, NewstalkZB)

From the Author:

This book came out of the need Mary and I saw while presenting our Parents Inc Hot Tips seminars to over 179,000 parents in the last thirteen years.
Life styles are so much more pressued now and parents want clear concised practical ideas that work.
Mothers need to know your love is wasted on your son if you have not got his respect.
Men would rather be unloved than disrespected, that is true with your son.
Boys need to hear 'Can do talk'.
Everyday they need to hear "You've got what it takes"
So never rescue your son.
Rather say,"That's a problem, how can I help you solve it?"
Boys need to now three things:
Who is in charge?
What are the rules?
Will they be enforced in a fair way?
'Growing Great Boys' will show you how to teach your son Functional behaviour ie Feel - Think - Act
Too many boys are into dysfunctional behaviour: Feel- Act.
It will show you how to grow a young man you will be proud to launch on to the world stage at eighteen.
It also covers many things such as the two most important things in parenting boys Fun and Communication.
I work 32 yrs with teenagers and when Mary and I started Parents Inc we wanted to help parents get their children prepared for the "White Water Rapids" years of teenagers, it starts the moment your son is born.
I want you to enjoy your adult son as I do with my two sons, it's worth the effort.
