Description

"[A]n eloquent, brave, big-hearted book…about the timeless anxieties and emotions of parenthood, and the modern twists thereon.”
—James Fallows, The Atlantic

Love That Boy is a uniquely personal story about the causes and costs of outsized parental expectations. What we want for our children—popularity, normalcy, achievement, genius—and what they truly need—grit, empathy, character—are explored by National Journal’s Ron Fournier, who weaves his extraordinary journey to acceptance around the latest research on childhood development and stories of other loving-but-struggling parents.

  • INTERESTING BUT NOT EARTH-SHATTERING.

    This book is interesting and educational, but not the inspiring story I expected. Don't expect it to reveal any earth-shattering truths or insights about the human dimension. Anticlimactic.
