He'll Be Ok: Growing Gorgeous Boys into Good Men (10th Anniversary Edition)

Author: Celia Lashlie
$35.00(NZD)  inc GST

The 10th anniversary edition of the iconic book that takes parents into the mysterious world of boys, with new foreword, introduction and tribute to the author.

How do you raise boys to men in a world where trouble beckons at every turn? How do you make sure they learn the 'right' lessons, stay out of danger, find a path to follow? How do you ensure they'll be OK?

Celia Lashlie has some of the answers. After years working in the prison service, she knows what can happen when boys make the wrong choices. She also knows what it's like to be a parent - she raised a son on her own and feared for his survival. As a crucial part of the Good Man Project, she talked to 180 classes of boys. Her insights into what boys need - and what parents can do to help them - are ground-breaking.

In this new edition of her honest, no-nonsense and best-selling book, Celia reveals what goes on inside the world of boys. With clarity and insight, she offers parents - especially mothers - practical and reassuring advice on raising their boys to become good, loving, articulate men.

This special 10th anniversary edition features:

  • Preface by Celia's son, and a new introduction by internationaly renowned child development author Micahel Thompson PhD.

  • A special tribute chapter based on interviews with Celia conducted before her death in early 2015.

  • A new FAQ section based on correspondence Celia had collected since publication of the first edition.
