Single Mothers Raising Sons, A Guide

Dr. William James has recently published a useful manual for single mothers, who find themselves raising boys through some very difficult years.  The book is new but already moving quickly up the Amazon charts as a favorite in its genre.

With Single Mothers Raising Sons in a Fatherless Home, Dr. William James brings his experience to bear upon the serious topic of boys being raised in homes in which a father is not present. He knows all too well, that absent a strong male presence in their lives to show them what our society expects of a man, to teach them how to stand-up to everyday challenges and succeed, and to model the type of behavior that leads to dignity, respect, resiliency and honor, that young boys are susceptible to seek belongingness and self-identity by means often associated with poor-decision making and affiliation with peer groups that engage in anti-social behavior and activity.

Here in this report, Dr. James presents the actual stories of real mothers and their sons. Each story deals with a different stage of a boy's life and development, illustrates the challenges that go along with those stages,includes deep and honest discussion as to what went wrong and why, and then follows-up with insight and strategies for taking pro-active measures to get ahead of these issues before they become reality.

As a mother of a son in a fatherless home, or even if you just know of someone in this situation and care enough to want to make a difference, reading this report is the first step to getting involved.

I was raised in a home by a single mother for many years.  She gave of herself in ways that astonish me to this very day.  We lost her many years ago, at the young age of 60.  She was a remarkable woman with insurmountable challenges, but somehow she managed to raise four boys, who reverence her as the single major factor in their success.  This 27-page guide strikes a chord with me and I'm sure it will assist any woman who needs some added help.
