9780140279702: Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys

It is argued that the story of Cain and Abel endures as an archetypal myth because it offers a glimpse into the emotional tinderbox of the adolescent male psyche. This text is a plea to give boys the emotional education they desperately need to navigate the maelstrom of adolesecence. It aims to provide parents with the hands-on tools they may need to raise sons who embody the best traditional attributes of maleness, but who also give a rich inner life, and deep, meaningful relationships with both women and men.
