Why is a trip to the garbage dump such a highlight in a boy's life?

Have you ever been confused by what makes your son tick? Do you sometimes find yourself wondering why your boy acts the way he does? Well, you're not alone.

In That's My Son, Johnson combines refreshing honesty with extensive research and humorous insight to tackle topics like communication, sexuality, discipline, and respect.

Maybe you're a little overwhelmed at the idea of raising your son to be a man of character. Or perhaps you're wondering how to talk with your boy so that he will listen. Whatever your situation, you will find wise counsel and encouragement in this helpful and reassuring book.

Must Read  Mar 21, 2007
This is a must read for moms who have boys. It was very eye opening! I grew up in a home with only girls and had no idea on some of the ways boys think. It is hard raising boys in today's society. We need to be raising our boys to be men, something that is very lacking today. The book does seem geared towards single moms, but don't let that discourage you from reading. It applies to ALL mothers, single or not.
This has been an amazing read!  Apr 22, 2006
This is simply the best. As it is combined with the seminar you give, "Courageous Moms Raising Boys to Become Good Men", this will be a world changer! I am so glad to have heard about you and your work. Thank you for the easy to read, deeply insightful book. You have given many woman hope whither they are single, married, grandma's or teachers, the insight and wisdom is refreshing! I'll be looking forward to reading your next book.
Being a full-time mom today is anything but politically correct. Our culture has reduced mothering to a side dish, a mere part of the meal. But, the truth is that motherhood IS a full-time vocation which requires more devotion than any career or pursuit. It is a job from which a woman never retires, a title which a woman will keep into eternity. And, today, who needs mothers most? Our young men. Boys in our culture are under attack like never before, and the men of the previous generation are failing as husbands, fathers and leaders.

If you're a mom and you're passionate about raising your son to be a man of character, a man of integrity, a man of virtue, a leader then you must read "That's My Son".

There are a plethora of wonderful Christian books about raising boys, from Robert Lewis' "Raising A Modern Day Knight" to Steve Farrar's "King Me". But, none of them are written specifically for the woman of the home, the mother. Mr. Johnson has filled that void and done it comprehensively.

There are only three parenting books that I keep in my library, to reference again and again. "The Mission of Motherhood" and "The Ministry of Motherhood" by Sally Clarkson and "That's My Son" by Rick Johnson.
Moms of Boys need to read this one!  Mar 25, 2006
I was browsing through a Christian bookstore shelves, looking for a really good book for a friend of mine who is going through a divorce when I happened to see this one. I bought it thinking, oh I won't get to read it sooner than later. I was wrong. I picked it up the next week and finished it in a week in between reading other books. (This book was the only one that I finished that week!)

It is informative and helpful. It is filled with practical tips on women raising boys, especially if you're a single mom. It explains the differences between boys and girls. It touched a little bit on the society's expectations of boys and what went wrong with men today. It is not a massive volume of information but it is a start and a guide. It is also a bible study guide (where do people find those kinds of bible studies? I'd like to know because no one around here uses these kinds of topics for bible studies!).

I have two boys and I am very close to them. Right now, since their dad works second shift and they're in school from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. ~~ they don't get to see their dad except for an hour in the morning. I know that in the future that I will have to be the one doing the grunt work while my husband's working. That doesn't mean that he won't be involved with them because he will be. It just means that he won't be able to break away from his job as easily and I will have to deal with the coaches, the teachers and so on. This book is definitely a helpful guide in what to do (like not running to the coach everytime my kid gets hurt or do the work for my son and so on). It shows a basic guideline in teaching the boys how to be responsible and how to be men of characters. And it is immensely helpful for this mom who is used to be surrounded by women all of her life.

Eye opening experience* A must read!!  Mar 22, 2006
You know the old saying "there doesnt come a handbook with being a parent?" Well "That's My Son" is the closest thing out there to a parenting guide. Mom's we are raising men not boys, this book will have you saying " Oh my gosh, thats why he does/did that??". Rick Johnson gives all the "secrets" of manhood that we would of spent a lifetime trying to figure out had it not been for this book. A must read... give this book as a gift to all the moms of sons out there, whether they have little boys, teenagers or even grown men!
