Internationally recognized expert on raising and educating boys, Dr. Tim Hawkes shows parents of tween and teen boys how to approach difficult but important conversations. Every parent of a teenage boy knows there are certain conversations they must have with their son but often they put them off--or worse, don't have them at all--because they simply don't know where to start. In Ten Conversations You Must Have With Your Son, Dr. Hawkes provides parents with the essential information you need to negotiate your way through what can often be very difficult territory about the why, what, and how of ten key topics: love, identity, values, leadership, achievement, sex, money, health, living together, and resilience. Each chapter offers suggestions for how you can connect with your sons on these issues while sharing your own experiences and knowledge with your boys. A headmaster of 25 years, Dr. Hawkes is in a unique position to know what goes on inside the minds of teenage boys. He understands what they need to know to best prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities, challenges and demands that life will make on them. Ten Conversations You Must Have With Your Son is the one book anyone with a teenage son should read to help them prepare him for adulthood.

"If Robin Williams' "Dead Poets Society" character wrote a book, it would be 10 Conversations You Must Have With Your Son.... Delightfully written and brimming with wisdom, it's the sort of thing I might start bringing to baby showers to sneak in among the onesies and Goodnight Moons."--The Chicago Tribune
