"This wise and warm book encourages mothers not to let their sons become unemotional robots but instead to stay connected."--Michael Kimmel, professor of sociology, SUNY Stony Brook"Shaffer and Gordon shed light on the cultural reasons boys frequently don't talk and then show how to encourage conversation and when to respect the necessary silences."--Laura Sessions Stepp, author of Our Last Best Shot: Guiding Our Children Through Early AdolescenceWhatever happened to that chatty little boy brimming with quirky facts and interminable accounts of his adventures? When did your son grow into the sullen stranger in your house who communicates through shrugs and one-word answers? Is this just part of growing up or is it a sign that something is wrong?In Why Boys Don't Talk--and Why It Matters, Susan Morris Shaffer and Linda Perlman Gordon draw on their professional and personal experiences to provide answers to those common questions.

Most important, you'll gain the knowledge and tools you need to:Recognize and understand the subtle ways boys communicate connectionReopen the lines of communication with your adolescent sonHelp him learn to express his feelings and experience a range of normal emotionsMaintain strong emotional bonds with your son in order to support his positive growth and developmentShaffer, Susan Morris is the author of 'Why Boys Don't Talk-and Why It Matters A Parent's Survival Guide to Connecting with Your Teen', published 2004 under ISBN 9780071417877 and ISBN 0071417877.
