Raising a boy or know someone who is? Read Boy-sterous Living by Jean Blackmer

Boy-sterous Living: Celebrating Your Loud and Rowdy Life with Sons by Christian author Jean Blackmer is a wonderful guide that any mother raising a son should read. Readers will feel as though they have settled down to share a nice conversation with a dear friend on the trials and joys of parenting boys. Boy-sterous Living is laced with humor, relevant Bible verses, and practical insights drawn from not only Jean’s own experiences as the mother of three boys but also from the interviews she conducted with other parents of boys. She expounds upon the characteristics that make boys unique and different from girls. Dirt is like a second skin to most boys. Boys typically like loud noises and often make them. While mothers are generally wired to be worriers by nature, boys are often wired to be risk-takers. In addition to helping moms understand these unique characteristics, Jean also points out the joys of viewing the world through the eyes of a boy. Most importantly, Jean’s book stands as a reminder that every parent has made a mistake or two along the journey of raising their children.
