THE PURPOSE OF BOYS

Helping Our Sons Find Meaning, Significance, and Direction in Their Lives.

ABOUT THE BOOK

THE PURPOSE OF BOYS is the final volume in Michael Gurian’s trilogy on boys development.  In this book, Gurian presents a tool kit for parents who want to discover how to inspire the ultimate fulfillment of their son’s life. As he explains, “purpose” is vital for the success and happiness of every boy. Throughout the book, Gurian shows how parents can help boys build motivation, character, selflessness, meaningful intimate relationships, a sense of responsibility to family and community, pride in their own good work, and mental and physical health.

Based on the latest scientific research regarding how boys develop neurologically, THE PURPOSE OF BOYS reveals what it takes to best support boys and address boys’ unique needs, weaknesses, and strengths. The book offers an understanding of what is happening inside a boy’s brain as he grows up, from birth through early adulthood. The author also includes an exploration of the roles of the nuclear and extended family, communities, and neighborhoods; the best schools for boys; and specific rites-of-passage experiences and how they influence a young man’s personal growth.

THE PURPOSE OF BOYS outlines a map parents can use to help their own sons wrestle with everyday life events and growth. And the book serves as a model to help all our sons seek a successful future, while still boys, adolescents, and young men.
