"If you are the parent of a boy . . . this is the book you need . . . insightful, enlightened, practical." —Peggy Orenstein, New York Times bestselling author of Boys & Sex From the dad who created the viral tweet supporting his son wearing nail polish, this essential parenting guide shares 36 parenting tips for battling gender norms, bringing down "man up" culture, and helping sons realize their potential. Our boys are in a crisis. Toxic masculinity and tough guy-ism are on display daily from our leaders, and we see anger, dysfunction, violence, and depression in young men who are suffocated by harmful social codes. Our young sons are told to stop throwing like a girl. They hear phrases like “man up” when they cry. They are told “boys will be boys” when they behave badly. The “Girl Power” movement has encouraged women to be whoever and do whatever they want, but that sentiment is not often extended to boys. Just watch the bullying when boys try ballet, paint their fingernails, or play with a doll. But we can treat this problem—and the power lies in the hands of parents. It's not only possible to raise boys who aren't emotionally stifled and shoved into stereotypical gender boxes; it's vital if we want a generation of men who can express their emotions, respect women, and help nurse society back to a halfway healthy place. We can reframe manhood. From Aaron Gouveia, who gained viral fame after tweeting his support for his son’s painted fingernails (and who knows toxic masculinity very well), learn practical and actionable tips such as: Don’t accept different standards for moms and dads Teach boys that “girl” is not an insult and retire phrases like “boys will be boys” Show boys that expressing their emotions and being physical is a good thing Let boys pursue nontraditional interests and hobbies Talk to boys about consent and privilege Model healthy and respectful relationships for boys to emulate Penned with equal parts humor, biting snark, and lived advice, Raising Boys to Be Good Men is the essential parenting guide for raising sons to realize their potential outside the box. ​

In this groundbreaking book, Raymond Winbush introduces a program for raising black boys to become warriors against global racism and poverty and advocates for their communities in America and abroad—now updated. “A work of this caliber is long overdue."—Dr. Henry Foster, Former Senior Advisor to President Clinton In The Warrior Method, psychologist, educator, and father Raymond Winbush creates a program designed for parents and teachers to help black boys become strong, self-reliant men. Filled with reflections on the author's own experiences, the book looks at a male's life through the prism of four seasons: spring—conception to four years old; summer—ages five through twelve; autumn—ages thirteen through twenty-one; and winter—age twenty-two and beyond. Winbush's comprehensive step-by-step approach draws on such African traditions as the "Birthing Circle" and a "Young Warriors Council" to help boys make important transitions, along with other modern variations on tribal customs that instill the values of self-respect, dignity, and honor. The method encourages black boys and their parents to have a global view of the state of black people which enriches their view of themselves. This updated, timely edition takes into account the special challenges boys face in today’s political climate, which has witnessed a surge in hate crimes, excessive police force, and an even more divided and racially-charged society since President Barack Obama left office. Furthermore, The Warrior Method demonstrates the positive influence and lasting impact that Black Panther’s racial pride and the Black Lives Matter Movement have had and how they will continue to affect future generations of young black men.
