I really enjoy reading parenting books. I think this stems from a) a love of reading and b) a love of learning. I know that before long I am going to be reading a lot of books that specifically deal with raising boys (right now I am just reading a lot of baby development books).
A friend of Matthew’s and mine, Stephen James and his friend David Thomas recently wrote a book called Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys. Though it is geared toward parents of boys a bit older than Elias through the teenage years, I think it shares a lot of practical wisdom, with a Christian foundation. It breaks out the different stages boys go through (The Explorer, The Lover, etc.), the mind of a boy and the heart of a boy. The book also has a Hot Topics section like dating, ADHD and pornography.
