Summary
Why is my son suddenly retreating behind closed doors? What's with his curt responses, impulsiveness, newfound obsession with gaming, and...that funky smell? As pediatrician and mother of a boy Cara Natterson explains, puberty starts in boys long before any visible signs appear, and it's as confusing for our sons as it is for parents, often leading to less parent-child communication in the name of keeping the peace. But, as Natterson warns in Decoding Boys , we respect their increasing "need" for privacy and alone time at their peril. Explaining how modern culture mixes badly with male adolescent biology, Natterson offers science, strategies, scripts, and tips for getting it right-

* Why boys need emotional and physical contact with parents--and how to give it in ways they'll accept
* How to manage video game "addiction," screen time, and pornography
* How to steer boys away from new social pressures--vaping, drugs, and alcohol
* Teaching consent and sensitivity in the #metoo culture

Decoding Boys is a powerful and validating lifeline, a book that will help today's parents keep their sons safe, healthy, and resilient, as well as ensure they become emotionally secure young men.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Puberty is a transformative time that can be tough on kids and their parents. Physical changes (erupting acne, patches of hair sprouting in new places), emotional changes (moodiness), and social shifts are unsettling, to say the least. And while many books on the subject of girls and puberty are available, very few have addressed boys. Natterson, a pediatrician, parent, and best-selling child-care author, provides a helpful guide for the care and handling of adolescent boys. Instructive chapters, including ""The Biology of Boy Puberty Everything Gets Bigger,"" ""The Talk,"" and ""Understanding Testosterone,"" effectively combine an understanding of pertinent male physiology with sound advice on good parenting. Natterson discusses the physical metamorphosis of boys, beginning around ages nine or 10 and including larger body parts, increased body odor, and erections. She also informatively discusses the teen brain, aggression, and sex ed. Her primary recommendation for raising a healthy, safe, and happy son is dialogue. ""Talk is healthy,"" Natterson writes as she encourages parents to be readily available and supportive listeners. Honest and loving conversations are the key to navigating adolescence.--Tony Miksanek Copyright 2019 Booklist"
