For Dads: The Mentor's Handbook
"An instruction manual whose every sentence speaks solid, strong, clear advice on how to make boys into men."
--Dr. Anthony Esolen
How can we teach our boys to become real men? Countless adults today lament the loss of our culture's young men to drugs and debauchery, to drunkenness, video games, and pornography.
The cry goes up: today's boys will never be fit to be husbands and fathers!
Blaming boys is not the solution.
Or, to be precise, men who help boys become the real men they are supposed to be.
Real men crush evil wherever it threatens the good. They speak the truth. They love and protect the beautiful. In defeating bullies and in-fighting just wars, real men ensure the safety and well-being of the innocent and vulnerable.
In these wise pages, Fr. Peter Michael Henry explains the process in detail.
Using history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and sacred scripture and a large dose of age-old common sense Fr. Henry instructs every man who is a dad, grandfather, uncle, coach, teacher, or youth minister how to raise up even unruly boys into the heroic, virtuous real men our world so desperately needs.
For Moms: Raising Chaste Catholic Men
Anxiety among Catholic mothers is sky high. How do we teach our sons to be chaste when a sex-obsessed culture is ready to drag our boys into the pit at every turn? All we want to do is protect the innocence of our little ones and the honor of our teens, yet the snares of ubiquitous porn, hook-up sex, the LGBTQ juggernaut, and the devaluing of true manhood appear unavoidable. What’s a mother to do?
