Book Review: Boy Mom by Monica Swanson

 "Boy Mom: What You Son Needs Most from You" by Monica Swanson is a read that I enjoyed this summer. This book written by a fellow boy mom is filled with takeaways and nuggets of truth and experience from raising her 4 boys, with the future goal gentleman of faith kept in mind as they grow.

This is not a dry parenting book that you struggle to stick with. It is more like a series of coffee dates with a wise mom friend who is further down the parenting journey from you, gently sharing on so many important topics and struggles that you may encounter parenting boys to adulthood.

Full of encouragement, prayers, and candor, the book contains practical, love-filled, intentional parenting ideas from her family's own experience.  There are helpful resources at the end of the chapters including a read-aloud list and dinner conversation starters. The author doesn't shy away from hard topics such as bullying and love/dating/sex, presenting these with real and inspired examples and advice.  While not everything will apply to a boy mom's journey, this pleasant and encouraging read will add a few new tools/ideas to her tool belt.
