A Fine Young Man: What Parents, Mentors and Educators Can Do To Shape Adolescent Boys into Exceptional Men.
Gurian, Michael
Suggesting that our society does not know enough about adolescent male development to provide them the love they need to become fully responsible, loving, and wise men, this book illuminates the inner lives of both highly functioning and troubled boys to help parents and educators confront the most common moral and emotional dilemmas of adolescent boyhood. The four parts of the book explore the emotional lives of adolescent males, the three stages of male adolescence, educating adolescent boys, and caring for their spirit. The chapters are: (1) "Jason and His Brothers: What It's Really Like for Adolescent Boys in America"; (2) "Protecting the Emotional Lives of Adolescent Boys"; (3) "The Crucial Passage: Nurturing the Second Decade of a Boy's Life"; (4) "Stage 1: The Age of Transformation (Ages 9-13)"; (5) "Stage 2: The Age of Determination (Ages 14-17)"; (6) "Stage 3: The Age of Consolidation (Ages 18-21)"; (7) "Schoolboys: Adolescent Boys and the Educational System"; (8) "Virtual Masculinity: Adolescent Boys and the Media"; (9) "Nurturing the Core of Manhood"; and (10) "The Ten Integrities," which include: lineal, psychological, social, spiritual, moral, emotional, sexual, marital, physical, and intellectual. The book concludes with an epilogue that poses questions for society concerning its role in the development of young men. Contains notes and references organized by chapter. (HTH)
