By Will Glennon

Practical and Positive Parenting that Promotes Your Boy’s Emotional Intelligence

From nationally recognized parenting expert and spokesperson, Will Glennon, come two hundred suggestions for raising emotionally aware and healthy boys.

Encouraging emotional intelligence from boyhood to manhood. Raised against a backdrop of gendered social and cultural norms, it’s no wonder that boys are more likely to struggle with their emotional intelligence. In this quick read, Glennon lists two hundred ways to nurture young men and, in turn, teach them how to nurture back.

Parenting tips and quotes. Avoid fragile masculinity, frat boy culture, and everything in between with a better understanding of male child behavior. Designed to help raise compassionate, emotionally intelligent boys and supplemented with emotional intelligence examples and child rearing anecdotes, Nurturing Boys encourages playful, thoughtful, and deliberate parenting styles.

Inside, boys will learn how to:

  • Connect with and manage their feelings
  • Use their feelings constructively, not destructively
  • Communicate their feelings

If you’ve asked, “What is toxic masculinity?” or “What is emotional intelligence,” and enjoyed books like Decoding BoysWild ThingsRaising Cain, or How to Raise a Boy, then you’ll love Will Glennon's Nurturing Boys.
