Playing off the themes in the Caldecott Medal-winning children’s book Where the Wild Things Are, this informative, practical, and encouraging guide will help parents guide boys down the path to healthy and authentic manhood. Wild Things addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual parts of a boy, written by two therapists who are currently engaged in clinical work with boys and their parents and who are also fathers raising five sons. Contains chapters such as “Sit Still! Pay Attention!” “Deficits and Disappointments,” and “Rituals, Ceremonies, and Rites of Passage.”

Not a Christian Book I just finished reading this book. It has too many references to popular Hollywood movies that I personally don’t want to watch myself, and I wouldn’t recommend for young boys/men to watch either, because of too much worldly content and profanity, like Adam Sandler’s movies and others. Since the authors profess to be Christians and at least one of them a pastor, I was surprised to find little to no reference to the Bible or to other great Christian men from history. I liked their description…

I needed this book. Love, love, love this book. I have been struggling with my 3 year old boy, and this book gave me so much insight on him. I went from wanting to pull my hair, didn’t know what to do with him, to understanding him. It helped me realize what I can expect from him, and what I cant. I think every mom of boys should read this book. It very well written, and very thorough.

If you have a son- you have to read this book! I was having a difficult time trying to figure out my son’s moods and sudden onset of apathy. Our amazing counselor recommended this book. And boy was it amazing! Such insight into the development – emotionally, physiologically, physically, intellectually- of boys. I wish I had read it when he was born and had it as a reference for all of the changes. Highly highly highly recommend!
