Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Warm and fuzzy, anchored in values, and filled with simple words of wisdom, this beloved, bestselling book for parents speaks to the important business of raising sons, and distills their timeless lessons into one nugget of wisdom per page--some lighthearted, some serious, some practical, and some intangible, and all supported by a strong moral backbone.</p> <p><br> Freshly updated, the book begins with the Five Keys of Parenting, a guide to navigating the extraordinary, even if sometimes exasperating, journey of parenthood. It's filled with the importance of nurturing responsibility: Teach him that the world will judge him by his actions, not his intentions. Fun stuff: Have tea with him in the afternoons. Serve cookies. And when he's ready to go: Hug him fiercely. </p>

Excerpt provided by Syndetics

<opt> <anon I1="BLANK" I2="BLANK">From Little Boys... Teach him to keep a secret. Take him for walks and introduce him to the world of bugs. Read to him nightly. He'll love it. Don't let him sleep in you bed, even if he's scared or sick. Sleep in his room on the floor. From Boys & Sports... Show him how to put a baseball in a new glove and wrap a belt around it. Accept the fact he may not be a quarterback, he may be a tuba player. And a fine one at that. From Boys & Money Help him buy a small amount of stock with his own money when he's twelve. Think how rich he'll be if he keeps that up for fifty years. Show him how to return something to the store and get his money back. Excerpted from Father to Son. Copyright (c) 2000 by Harry H.
