Product Description
"Six boys!" folks say in mock horror, "Well, better you than me."
We answer them cheerfully - we love our boys and they're a gift from God... a reward.

Privately, though, we admit to ourselves it's not always rosy. Teenaged boys put away a startling amount of groceries. Young boys can be downright destructive. They're noisy, unconcerned with personal hygiene, and the dog has a longer attention span - or so it seems, some days.

If this is God's chosen gift to us, then why does it seem so hard? How can we prepare these boys to serve God when we can barely make it through the day. Isn't there a better way?

The answer is yes.

Raising Real Men looks beyond the untied shoes and dirty jeans to what the Lord means your son to be. Learn how to help him focus on schoolwork, find real heroes, stand alone when he needs to, and become a real man one day. Don t just survive raising boys, succeed at it and learn how to love them as they really are.


Raising Real Men is for real men who aspire to pass on a legacy of strength, courage and fidelity to Christ our King. It encouraged me as a father. I pray it will encourage you. -- Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr., Author of When You Rise Up

Hal and Melane Young have six sons and are disciples of Jesus. They know how to raise real men. This book is a treasure trove of practical tips to help you to raise your sons right. It will answer your questions, help you avoid mistakes, bring them up in the Lord, and understand them. I highly recommend it. -- Chris Klicka, Author of The Right Choice

As the grandfather of six boys ranging in age from two to fifteen, I am acutely aware of the need that this book fills, and quite admirably. This is just what the doctor ordered for parents who want to raise capable Christian men of character. --John Rosemond, Parenting Columnist and Author of Parenting by the Book

In a time when our culture seems intent on emasculating our boys, it is a real pleasure to find Christians who are pushing back, responding with biblical answers. Raising Real Men combines a number of important characteristics in giving advice to parents of young boys it is earthy, realistic, humorous and scriptural. --Douglas Wilson, Author of Future Men

This is a book that every family should have no matter the number of boys and even those families without boys as the book gives tremendous insight into understanding how boys think and why they act as they do. This book meets a crying need in an area where there is very little specific direction. Thank you Hal and Melanie for this outstanding work of the Lord. --J. Michael Smith, Esq., President, Home School Legal Defense Association

Hal and Melanie Young truly have done parents everywhere a tremendous service. Raising Real Men is a powerful parenting guide written with heart, humor, insight, and years of time-tested experience. Each page offers stories, suggestions, and biblical applications that will practically equip you for the tremendous challenge and privilege of raising your own sons into Godly manhood. Hal and Melanie are passionate about not only raising sons to become men, but to become men of vision, character, and uncommon compassion and self-sacrifice. I wish I had read Raising Real Men years ago. It is a wisdom-packed resource, and I heartily recommend it to you. --Phil Downer, President, Discipleship Network of America

Hal and Melanie Young's Raising Real Men is long overdue. This book manages to be a bold corrective to the feminization of boys and men in our culture, without simply being reactionary. They have thought deeply, biblically and well about the difference between the ways boys and girls are wired as well as the different roles God has for them to fulfill. In an era when the church has lost a biblical concept of masculinity and femininity this book is a breath of fresh air. -- Dr. Tedd Tripp, Author, Shepherding a Child's Heart
