COOL BOYS SUPER SONS
THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK
I was at my daughter’s school one morning to collect her report-card. A friend said to me that her son, my daughter’s classmate, fared pretty well. “But, Mama,” her son had told her, “I didn’t manage to beat the top four students. They were all girls.”
“I told him,” my friend went on, “Forget about the girls. Just compete with the boys.”
As I waited for my turn to see the class teacher, I pondered: Have parental expectations on boys’ achievement dropped that much?
What Parents Can Do To Motivate Teen Boys To Do Better
Sneaking out when they shouldn’t. Breaking promises. Not measuring up despite the potential to excel. Boys seem to grab attention for the wrong reasons these days. Yet, any boy can behave better and get better grades if only he were to put in his PERSONAL BEST – the best he is capable of.
In this book, Jamilah Samian – author of Cool Mum Super Dad and herself a parent of five boys and a girl – outlines the practical steps parents can take so boys choose to be responsible for their behaviour and make a real effort to be the best they can be.
Based on sound research and interviews with numerous parents, teachers, boys and motivational trainers who have dealt with thousands of boys, Cool Boys Super Sons offers tips on:
Trust: why it makes a difference
How to help boys be better organised
How to spur boys’ interest towards school work
Fathers as trendsetters
Mothers and sons
Being a single parent or a stepparent to boys
An ideal read if your son is a ‘tween’ (aged 10 plus to 12) or a teen (aged 12 plus and above).
