Summary
The Big Buddy team knows boys, they've been working with them for 13 years, matching fatherless boys with male mentors and running highly a successful programme to help boys grow and develop into fine young men. The authors have distilled the wisdom they've gained from working with hundreds of Big Buddy boys and men, as well as from parenting their own children and grandchildren ... Our Boys is a positive, practical down-to-earth guide that describes what makes boys tick, outlines their development from babyhood to childhood to manhood, and is full of great ideas and suggestions
