Got Any Tips? Best-Selling Author Shares Advice for Raising a Boy
If you have one, or two, or more of your own, you probably know that raising boys can be a handful. Gretchen Carlson discussed some tips for this sometimes-daunting endeavor with Rosalind Wiseman, author of "Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World."
Wiseman previously penned a best-seller on raising girls.
Gretchen, who has a son and a daughter, asked about the perception that girls are more difficult than boys. Wiseman says that's a myth, and argues that we do boys a "disservice" when we make them feel that they're less complicated.
She said parents of boys need to guard against making their sons feel like they cannot talk about a problem or issue that they're having. Wiseman said "if they keep not talking to us, they can get themselves into problems that are way over their head and get really hurt."
