Raising Real Men - Mom and Dad Special - Book and AudioBook #Giveaway @RaisingRealMen (12/11)

Raising Real Men:  Surviving, Teaching and Appreciating Boys

Raising Real Men

In October, I had the pleasure of reviewing the book Raising Real Men:  Surviving, Teaching, and Appreciating Boys.

Voted the 2011 "Book of the Year" by the Christian Small Publishing Association, the book has been resonating with parents of boys everywhere.

This publisher's description will give you an idea of what you will find in this 256 paperback volume:
"Six boys!" folks say in mock horror, "Well, better you than me."

We answer them cheerfully - we love our boys and they're a gift from God...a reward.

Privately, though, we admit to ourselves it's not always rosy. Teenaged boys put away a startling amount of groceries. Young boys can be downright destructive. They're noisy, unconcerned with personal hygiene, and the dog has a longer attention span - or so it seems, some days.

If this is God's chosen gift to us, then why does it seem so hard? How can we prepare these boys to serve God when we can barely make it through the day. Isn't there a better way?

The answer is yes.

Raising Real Men looks beyond the untied shoes and dirty jeans to what the Lord means your son to be. Learn how to help him focus on schoolwork, find real heroes, stand alone when he needs to, and become a real man one day. Don t just survive raising boys, succeed at it and learn how to love them as they really are.

"Raising Real Men is for real men who aspire to pass on a legacy of strength, courage and fidelity to Christ our King. It encouraged me as a father. I pray it will encourage you." Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr., Author of When You Rise Up

"Hal and Melane Young have six sons and are disciples of Jesus. They know how to raise real men. This book is a treasure trove of practical tips to help you to raise your sons right. It will answer your questions, help you avoid mistakes, bring them up in the Lord, and understand them. I highly recommend it." Chris Klicka, Author of The Right Choice and Homeschool Heroes
Hal and Melanie Young are not only generous in sharing their parenting experience, they have also offered me the opportunity to host a special Raising Real Men giveaway.

They call it the Mom and Dad Special.  The winner will receive a paperback copy AND an audio copy of the book.  They will also include two sets of their Hero Tales from American History by Theodore Roosevelt and narrated by Hal.  These are audiobooks with sound effects.  I'll bet young boys love these!
