"Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys"
by Dan Kindlon and Michael Thompson

In the book Raising Cain two leading child psychologists, Dan Kindlon, Ph.D. and Michael Thompson, Ph.D.,share what they have learned from working with boys and their families in over thirty-five years combined experience.  They emphasize teaching our sons “emotional literacy” to assist them in steering through the social pressures they often confront.  Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence, states that “Raising Cain gives a long-needed insight into that mysterious, magical land, the psyches of boys.Every parent, teacher—or anyone who wants boys to flourish—they should read this book.”
