Raising Real Men Boot Camp 9-12

Raising Real Men BootcampFrom the authors of Raising Real Men, Christian Small Publishers 2011 Book of the Year

When our children were all little and Melanie was feeling overwhelmed, most people responded, “You just wait ’til they’re teenagers! You think it’s hard now?”

Well, thank you, that’s very encouraging. Does it have to be that way? Does life with a teen have to be more difficult than life with an untrained toddler with no self-control? Is sullen, moody, rebelliousness just a part of growing up?


Get prepared to make the teen years great at our exclusive Boot Camp 9-12!
Do you have a son who is 9 to 12 years old?

When our boys hit that age, they seem to fall apart. Formerly obedient sons suddenly get angry and rebellious. They don’t seem to be able to control their tempers or get their work done. One of our teens said, “Mom, it seems like when a guy gets to be about nine, his head gets harder and his brain gets softer…” Now, the brother he was talking about didn’t appreciate it much, but it sure seemed true!

Are you starting to see some changes? Does he seem full of anger and hard to live with all of a sudden? Wondering what is going on and how you are going to handle it? Get help now!
We’re inviting a small number parents of 9-12 year old boys that are unwilling to accept teen turmoil as inevitable to join us live for a Raising Real Men webinar series getting you geared up to make these years a blessing and not a nightmare.

We’ll meet together for five lively, funny, powerful and practical interactive online sessions that will take the fear out of the coming years and give you the tools to help your guys navigate these dangerous waters safely. We’ll be interacting with you, too, answering your questions live!

Starts Monday evening, 8pm ET, January 7th and runs on Monday evenings until February 4th for Only $39 (On sale this week for $24!) . Get help raising your son to godly manhood! All sessions will be recorded, so don’t worry if you need to miss one!
