Have you ever laughed, slapped your forehead and thought, “what the heck is wrong with these boys?” If this is you, you’re not alone. Whether they are whacking themselves in the head, asking inappropriate questions, or playing with their body parts, boys often can be flabbergasting.
As parents, teachers, or caregivers to boys, we are often confused about how to relate to them; but it doesn’t have to be that way. We can have more fun and connective relationships with our boys, if we learn how to start early.
Through these hilarious interactions you are about to read, Diane gives you a glimpse into the world of raising boys and how to have connective communication with them.
Author and communication studies professor Diane Auten shares stories and insights on:
- how boys learn and talk about the human body
- how boys understand relationships
- how to teach boys about life
- the untamable boy imagination
This is a Mom-oir that looks at what happens when the filters are turned off. From boys wondering when they’re going to get “hairballs on their tenders” to running up and down the crowded department store aisles celebrating a particularly good poop, The Joys of Raising Boys: the Good, the Bad, and the Hilarious takes a look at the gritty (and frequently jaw dropping) business of raising boys.
