Decoding Boys: New science behind the subtle art of raising sons [9781529339833]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

This is the ultimate guide to raising the tween/teen boy in your life. It covers everything from relationships, social media, friendships and school, dealing with topics like porn, drugs and video games, as well as physical and mental changes.

Dr Natterson helps parents navigate the tricky stage of puberty - when loud, rambunctious boys often turn into silent, uncommunicative beings who slink behind closed doors. She argues that it's up to parents to improve their communication with their son and help him prepare for life as an adult, armed with the knowledge needed to become a well-rounded human being. This book looks at the dramatic shifts boys face physically, mentally, emotionally and socially, filtered through the Dr Natterson's expert medical and child development lens.

'Decoding Boys debunks the widespread myth of the inscrutable teenage boy. Dr. Cara Natterson illuminates boys' inner lives, details the pressures they face from the outside world, and teaches parents how to effectively engage and support their adolescent sons. Decoding Boys is clear, wise, and eye-opening. If you're raising a boy, you need this brilliant book.'
- Lisa Damour, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of Untangled and Under Pressure

'Decoding Boys is the ultimate guide to help you understand and raise your boys with acceptance and perspective. Reading it is like having an empathetic, really smart friend who totally gets what you are going through and is helpful every step of the way!'
- Mallika Chopra, author of Living with Intent

'Decoding Boys is the book we've been waiting for! Dr. Cara Natterson tackles the topics that are difficult for parents to understand, let alone discuss with their children. She demystifies the complex science of male puberty and delivers sound advice for any adult living with-and wanting to support-an increasingly silent teenage boy.'
- Louise Greenspan, M.D., coauthor of The New Puberty, How to Navigate Early Development in Today's Girls


AUTHOR: Cara Natterson is a paediatrician, consultant, and award-winning author. She grew up in Los Angeles, dreaming of helping others. After medical school and training to be a paediatrician, she returned to her hometown to work as a primary care doctor. Whilst there she learned first-hand how difficult it can be for parents to navigate all of the information (good and bad) thrust at them. That's when Cara started writing books. At first, she focused on medical issues, but over time her writing shifted to the most common fears and misconceptions about paediatric health. She has a 12-year old daughter and an 10-year old son. Publishing over seven books her parenting books include The Care and Keeping of You, a three-book series and Guy Stuff.
