From video games to the Internet, technology and popular culture are having a profound effect on today's boys. Boys need guidance more than ever. But how can we help them do better in school? How can we keep the lines of communication open? Raising Boys in a New Kind of Worldis a passionate call for greater empathy. The more we know about boys, the more realistic our expectations of them will be. We need to stop seeing normal boy behaviour as a problem and learn to understand a boy's need for movement, his unique learning styles, and his personal methods of communicating. Michael Reist writes from the front lines. As a classroom teacher for more than 30 years and the father of three boys, he has seen first-hand the effects that changes in modern culture are having on boys. Raising Boys in a New Kind of Worldis an inspiring and entertaining collection of positive, practical advice on many topics, including discipline, homework, video games, and bullying, and provides numerous tips on how to communicate with boys.
Michael Reist is the author of the Dysfunctional School and has published more than 70 articles on parenting, teaching) spirituality, and popular culture. Audiences across Canada have been inspired by his popular workshop "Boys and Girls Learn Differently." He lives in Caledon East, Ontario.
