14 thoughts on “Triple Threat For Raising Boys

  1. I love this! I only have one precious boy at the moment but he means the world to me! And while he is only 7 months old and doesn’t need this quite yet I am glad I know this for the future! Thank you so much for posting! 🙂

  2. Great article! I agree wholeheartedly that it’s important for boys to blow off some of that extra energy. They may not even realize why they are feeling so keyed up – but if we are able to direct them outside to do something highly physical they seem to come back inside feeling much more centered.

  3. Thanks for this. I have only one, 7YO, and this gives me some good ideas. I love the idea of getting out the energy by jumping on the trampoline and doing other outside activities.

  4. Thanks for all the positive comments. I’m so glad you all found this helpful! Between all of you who commented, you represent the raising of over 20 boys! Twenty boys who will someday be men! They are blessed to have such good mamas!

  5. I was also so encouraged by this. My boys are 8 and 6. We bought a mini indoor trampoline and it means even on rainy days there is a place to bounce! 🙂

  6. Thank you for this article! My husband and I have five boys (one of each 🙂 ), ages 10, 14, 16, 18 and 20 and I predicted each one of them to be a boy before he was born. They are such a delight! I am so proud when we walk into a public place with all 5 of them behind us and lots of people staring! We have received many compliments on their behaviours, but we do have an issue with one of them, because he is very withdrawn (although obedient), so we’re still working on that and praying about it. It’s nice to see how other parents of that many boys are coping. 🙂

  7. This was a fantastic article. I am a mom of all boys 7 and under and I’m constantly working to direct them along the right path. These 3 Bs are fantastic reminders, simple and to the point. I will be posting them on my wall to remind me to stay focused and not overcomplicate my approach!

  8. This was a great article. I have an 11 year old boy and I’m always looking for better ways to communicate with him. However, I also have 2 girls. An article like this on girls would be super helpful. Is there such a thing?
