teve is an Australian author and Psychologist that has written extensively on manhood and parenting. HeÔÇÖs the go-to author for sex-specific parenting tips and dives deep into the experience of raising boys to become respectful, confident and loving men.

Raising Boys in the 21st Century covers behavioural techniques, how puberty can be a positive time for your son and how hands-on engagement can be used to build lasting bonds with your kids.

Some more points the book covers:

  • Brain and hormonal development including the latest findings on testosterone
  • Boys and crying
  • Boys and 'bad' behaviour
  • Reading and communication
  • Countering the effects of porn

Quick note. The generalisation of behaviour between sexes is starting to become fairly outdated and there is a lot of that in this book. I would still read it as it does have some good tips but just keep in mind that your kids may not fit into the box that society (and this book) creates for them. ItÔÇÖs also pretty conservative in its tone and ideas. Take what is useful and leave the rest.

Bonus! There is also a Raising Girls but see the note above.
