Boys Will Be Men: Raising Our Sons for Courage, Caring & Community

While the women's liberation movement produced dynamic changes in society's assumptions about girls' roles, little has changed about our attitude toward the role of boys. Yet the cycle of violence and oppression, specifically that which is killing so many young people and especially boys, will not stop until boys are raised to become part of the struggle to end it.

Recommends it for: parents, parents to be, people who care about boys
A radical voice writes a practical guide for parenting.

This is a thoughtful and thought-provoking book with practical ways of thinking about how you want to bring your boy up to be an anti-racist, pro-feminist, environment-respecting, peace-loving man. It assumes very little, and invites you to question everything -- including what the author proposes.

Nothing new. Only the sports selection was good for me.

A pretty good read. Not sure it related too much to my son, but interesting as I did return to California to teach these type of violent and oppressed kids in Oakland Unified.
