My Thoughts…

I knew I had to pick up this book. Why? Well you see I grew up in house with four sisters, one older and three younger. I currently have a two year old daughter of my own and just found out that baby number two is low and behold boy! Boys are completely  new territory to me and I knew I would need some sort of resource to help me figure a few things out. And with that being said,  I couldn’t have picked up a better book but I’m Outnumbered:  One Mom’s Lessons in the Lively Art of Raising Boys by Laura Lee Groves.

I had questions and I got practical answers about boys. I learned so much from each chapter that I’m sure I’m going to give this book a re-read and start taking notes and highlighting as the years go by with raising my own son.  I see this book as a good resource whether you have one or multiple sons. I personally loved also that there is a section in the book that has Laura’s husband voice his thoughts on each section of the book! There is also a section for single moms on how to raise boys.

There’s a Bible Verse in this book that reads ” My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love” – Col 2:2. I certainly was encouraged by this book and I feel other mom’s of sons will be too. I highly recommend it!
