When it comes to questions about the family, it’s hard to find a Christian family that doesn’t turn to Dr. James Dobson. After all, his focus is on the family. With over 30 books and a radio show heard on more than 5,000 radio stations worldwide, Dr. Dobson is the recognized authority on Christian family issues.
Recently, much of Dr. Dobson’s focus has been on boys. As Dr. Dobson says, "I feel that Bringing Up Boys may be the most important book I've written. That is because, to quote from Chapter 5, ‘we as parents are raising the next generation of men who will either lead with honor and integrity or abandon every good thing they have inherited.’"
Behavioral research shows that young males today are in serious trouble; they need special care and guidance during each stage of their developmental journey. As our culture becomes more wicked, our kids are being targeted, exploited and manipulated. Because boys are inherently less stable than girls, they are more vulnerable to the temptations and dangers of the world.
In this seminar, Dr. Dobson will explain:
" Why boys are the way they are
" How to understand their emotional and physical development
" How best to motivate them into becoming godly men.
Based on his Gold Medallion award-winning book and video series of the same title, Dr. Dobson’s seminar "Bringing Up Boys" will help parents, teachers and youth workers discover how they can guide boys toward becoming Kingdom men.
Who should attend this seminar:
" Parents and grandparents of boys
" Parents and grandparents of girls who want to better understand how they differ from boys
" Youth pastors
" Youth volunteers
" Children’s pastors
" Children’s ministry workers
