Boys must be boys July 9, 2007

Is you know a boy that can tell you what PSP, PS2, and X360 stand for but has no idea how to tie a bowline, clovehitch, or a hasty harness, then you need to spend a few dollars on him and buy him a book. Not just any book, but the Dangerous Book for Boys. There are several additional titles that carry similar themes, including one for girls, and you must start somewhere.

I have used these books with my 3 sons for some time now, and every day is an adventure, but these books are not written for the disengaged dad. Get ready to build forts, hew canoes, design booby traps, and get ready to release a hearty roar or rumble with you kids.

Al Mohler, president of Southern Seminary, reviewed the book on his blog in late May. He also uses it at home with his family.

Also, The Weekly Standard reviews it this month, and the review alone is worth the purchase price of the book.

If you are a father, hope to be one some day, or know a dad in need of some chest-thumping with his sons, get the book–you’ll be glad you did.

Watch the trailer for the book here.
