HARPERCOLL

The Way of Boys by renowned psychologist Dr. Anthony Rao is an important wake-up call to the dangers of over-medicating our male children and our current tendency to treat their active boyhood as an illness. Dr. Rao raises a much-needed alarm in this essential volume that belongs in every parent’s collection alongside Raising Cain by Michael Thompson. In these time when many parents, concerned about ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, and bipolar disorder, may be dangerously misinterpreting their young sons’ healthy, normal development process, The Way of Boys is must reading



Book News
Writing for parents, educators, pediatricians, psychologists, and other developmental experts, Rao, a psychologist who specializes in boyhood development, reviews various problems boys have, such as lack of friends, bullying, too much activity, competitiveness, and hating school, as well as when teachers think they need testing, and how to deal with these issues, without resorting to medication. He argues that parents and others need to change their expectations of boys and understand aspects of their development and how their thinking affects their behavior, and that often, they don't have ADHD, Asperger's, or a mental illness, but instead are merely behind developmentally.
