Books for a Better Life Award Winner Here is a landmark book that reveals the way boys think and that shows parents, educators and coaches how to reach out and help boys overcome their most common yet difficult challenges -- by the bestselling author who changed our conception of adolescent girls. Do you constantly struggle to pull information from your son, student, or athlete, only to encounter mumbling or evasive assurances such as a€œIta€™s nothinga€ or a€œIa€™m good?a€ Do you sense that the boy you care about is being bullied, but that hea€™ll do anything to avoid your a€œhelp?a€ Have you repeatedly reminded him that schoolwork and chores come before video games only to spy him reaching for the controller as soon as you leave the room? Have you watched with frustration as your boy flounders with girls? Welcome to Boy World. Ita€™s a place where asking for help or showing emotional pain often feels impossible. Where sports and video games can mean everything, but working hard in school frequently earns ridicule from a€œthe guysa€ even as they ask to copy assignments. Where a€œmastermindsa€ dominate and friends ruthlessly insult each other but can never object when someone steps over the line. Where hiding problems from adults is the ironclad rule because their involvement only makes situations worse. Boy world is governed by social hierarchies and a powerful set of unwritten rules that have huge implications for your boya€™s relationships, his interactions with you, and the man hea€™ll become. If you want whata€™s best for him, you need to know what these rules are and how to work with them effectively. What youa€™ll find in Masterminds and Wingmen is critically important for every parent a€“ or anyone who cares about boys a€“ to know. Collaborating with a large team of middle- and high-school-age editors, Rosalind Wiseman has created an unprecedented guide to the life your boy is actually experiencing a€“ his on-the-ground reality. Not only does Wiseman challenge you to examine your assumptions, she offers innovative coping strategies aimed at helping your boy develop a positive, authentic, and strong sense of self.
