Mothers Tell the Truth About Raising Teen SonsBook - 2004
When it comes to parenting teenage boys, the experts have had their say--and then some. But what about the moms who have learned about the challenges and rewards by dealing with real kids in the real world? In Oh Boy! more than 30 moms tell stories about how they've handled their son's adventures and misadventures. The minidramas recounted run the gamut of teen boy behavior and traits, from messy rooms and body odor to prank calls, bad grades, and more serious issues, such as drinking and sex. These stories, each prefaced with a brief, insightful introduction from mother-of-two Maryann Bucknum Brinley, show that no mom handles things wonderfully every time. Yet even a seemingly disastrous experience can grow into a fond memory, one that just might generate laughter for years to come. Like words from a good friend and stories with happy endings, Oh Boy! will help moms sleep better at night, reassured that they don't have to be perfect to be great at mothering.
