We’ve long heard the dangers of telling boys “not to cry” and to “keep a stiff upper lip,” but Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys details exactly why putting a damper on our sons’ emotions is one of the most heartbreaking things we can do as parents.
Herein, Kindlon and Thompson detail exactly the challenges boys face at home, school, and on the athletic field, and how we can help them cultivate and embrace the most important gift of all: emotional literacy.
Sarah on Amazon is a fan, “Wonderful book, very insightful and moving. Articulates well what I’ve learned as a teacher of forty years. In fifty years of childcare, I see more and more clearly how our culture makes it very difficult to grow up to be a happy boy, a normal boy, without the scars of institutional schooling and stoic conditioning.”
