We all want our boys to grow up to be the best men they can be - here are tips from a parenting guru.

In Growing Great Boys, parenting guru Ian Grant shows how to work with the essential character of boys, using understanding and emotional support to raise loyal, passionate, hard-working, sensitive, funny, fearless and strong men.

Growing Great Boys is brimming with practical and informative parenting advice for raising great sons, from the vital preschool years through to the challenges of teens. It includes chapters on the roles of mums and dads, and on the special challenges faced by solo parents.

Hot tips, quotes and action labs encourage parents to take a hands-on approach, coaching their sons to succeed in the game of life.

Reviews

Insightful and inspirational -- Ian Grant has a unique ability to cut through the jargon and give Kiwi parents genuinely helpful, down-to-earth advice we can really use.

Simon Dallow, Viva

I know from listener comments how much Ian’s advice is valued, and as the father of two boys I have exploited that advice to advantage. It doesn’t come any better.

Leighton Smith, NewstalkZB
