After Eric Davis spent over 16 years in the military, including a decade in the SEAL Teams, his family was more than used to his absence on deployments and secret missions that could obscure his whereabouts for months at a time. Without a father figure in his own life since the age of fifteen, Eric was desperate to maintain the bonds he’d fought so hard to forge when his children were young—particularly with his son, Jason, because he knew how difficult it was to face the challenge of becoming a man on one’s own. Unfortunately, Eric learned the hard way that Quality Time doesn’t always show up in Quantity Time. Facebook, television, phones, video games, school, jobs, friends—they all got in the way of a real, meaningful father-son relationship. It was time to take action. As a SEAL, Eric learned to innovate and push boundaries, allowing him to function at levels beyond what was expected, comfortable, ordinary, and even imaginable, and he knew that as a father he needed to do the same with his son. Meeting extreme with extreme was the only answer. Using a unique blend of discipline, leadership, adventure, and grace, Eric and his SEAL brothers will teach you how to connect, and reconnect, with your sons and learn how to raise real men—the Navy SEAL way.

A parent’s guide and an “unflinching” account of the author’s “journey through the minefield of masculinity to become a better husband, dad, and human” (Michael Ian Black, comedian and New York Times–bestselling author of A Better Man). Toxic masculinity is on display daily from public figures—and we see anger, dysfunction, violence, and depression in young men suffocated by harmful social codes. Our sons are told to stop throwing like a girl. They’re ordered to “man up” when they cry. They hear “boys will be boys” when they behave badly. These messages are damaging—as is the bullying that often follows attempts by boys to just relax and be themselves. But the power lies in the hands of parents to make things better. It's not only possible to raise boys who aren't emotionally stifled and shoved into stereotypical boxes; it's vital if we want a generation of men who can express their emotions, respect women, and help bring society back to a halfway healthy place. We can reframe manhood. From the father who gained viral fame after tweeting his support for his son’s painted fingernails (and who knows toxic masculinity very well), this is an often-humorous personal account and a source of practical tips on: Teaching boys that “girl” is not an insult and retiring phrases like “boys will be boys” Showing boys that dealing with their emotions makes them stronger, not “weak” Letting boys pursue nontraditional interests and hobbies Talking to boys about consent and privilege Modeling healthy and respectful relationships for boys to emulate “If you are the parent of a boy . . . this is the book you need . . . insightful, enlightened, practical.” —Peggy Orenstein, New York Times-bestselling author of Boys & Sex “He’s an engaging guide . . . Gouveia approaches his subject with honesty and concern for the dad as much as the son.” —The Washington Post

How do we build our sons to be tough but not arrogant? mannered but not soft? imaginative but not lazy? bold but not hollow? Future Men is a Christian guide to raising strong, virtuous sons, contrary to the effeminacy and sentimentalism of contemporary culture. When Theodore Roosevelt taught Sunday school for a time, a boy showed up one Sunday with a black eye. He admitted he had been fighting and on a Sunday too. He told the future president that a bigger boy had been pinching his sister, and so he fought him. TR told him that he had done perfectly right and gave him a dollar. The stodgy vestrymen thought this was a bit much, and so they let their exuberant Sunday school teacher go. What a loss. Unbelief cannot look past surfaces. Unbelief squashes; faith teaches. Faith takes a boy aside and tells him that this part of what he did was good, while the other part of what he did got in the way. "And this is how to do it better next time." As we look to Scripture for patterns of masculinity for our sons, we find them manifested perfectly in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the one who set the ultimate pattern for friendship, for courage, for faithfulness, and integrity.

Families with boys often find the world reacts to them in mock horror. Even though parents love their sons, privately they admit that boys can be a handful to raise--they are boisterous, competitive, reckless, distractable. The challenge of wills between parent and son starts early, and the quest to civilize young bulls may seem hopeless some days. Yet believers know that God has given them children as a gift of heaven, specially chosen for their particular families and marked as a blessing. If that's so, why does it seem so hard? How can we prepare these boys to serve God when it's all we can do to make it through another day? Isn't there a better way? Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching and Appreciating Boys shows the answer is emphatically yes. Written by the parents of six boys, Raising Real Men provides hope and encouragement to families with sons. Starting from the premise that God made boys to become men, Hal and Melanie Young offer Biblical principles and tested, practical ideas for training the manly virtues that can drive parents and teachers up the wall. This is a practical guide to equipping the hearts and minds of boys without breaking or losing your own. "...earthy, realistic, humorous, and scriptural ..." -- Douglas Wilson, author, Future Men "This is just what the doctor ordered for parents who want to raise capable Christian men of character." -- John Rosemond, author, Parenting By The Book
