   Very helpful for my special needs pre-teen
My 12 year old son has severe autism and is extremely high functioning. We both really like it, said Blair. We can read it at his pace, it's well organized, practical, clear and not too racey for him, Sax added. As a psychotherapist professionally as well as a parent, I would highly recommend that most boys between the ages of 10 and 13 try Transcendental Meditation.
   This book was just ok. It really needs an ...
It's just that the book was just okay. The game is in desperate need of an update, Vazzi said. I'd recommend the book to anyone looking for a good read. Because it is so old, I got it used for $4 but I would not repurchase as a present for anyone. But I would urge people to get more current with technology.
my grandsons both turned 13 this year and I know that their dads don't tell them everything they should know and I think this is exactly what they needed, Raymond said.
   Good reference book
Despite my best efforts to keep the lines of communication open, my boys just seem to ask when they're freaked out by something! I got this book for my son and the other for my older son. It's nice to know that they can refer to these books in the privacy of their rooms and perhaps get answers to questions that they don't feel like actually asking.
   Very well written
It's a good way to kick-start very important conversations between parents and growing boys. Great customer service, said Dr. Steve. Dhaliwal, director of neurosurgery at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Darien. Thanks for the tip.
   Perfect for boy starting middle school
The book was purchased by my 11 year old after I scanned through pages of other similar books. The book covers almost all the senstive topics that a 11 year old is shy of talking to his parents about. I highly recommend this book to any parent who wants to provide answers for their child without going into too many details and illustrations that may be inappropriate for this age. It was a great book, filled with all of my requirements, plus more. Emphasizing the importance of proper grammar, the book provides explanations in a relaxed style. Sanitation expert Paul Vassallo offered some great starting points on hygiene and friendship. It has all the makings of a perfect transition from boys health to sex education. This book is highly recommended by booklover for boys.
   Excellent tool for boys
Thanks for the book. Kept him reading as someone who doesn't read much and gave him many answers that he needed and didn't want to ask.
   Great book for young boys
The book was purchased for a 10 year old boy. It's a very good book, said Dr. Robert Hemenway, who co-chaired the inquiry. It is a good conversation starter for parents and young boys. I highly recommend Dr. Goin's book.
   Pre read before giving this to your child
I am thankful that I bought two books for my son regarding puberty, Diana said. Amazon's "The Da Vinci Code" was a must-have book. I stopped reading this book after I finished the second part. Bustin Rhymes: I am surprised that the last line of this section didn't say, go ahead and masterbate until your penis falls off! The book is the product of the American Medical Association's Physicians Committee. Simply put, there is no need to tell a pre-teen or teenage boy to masterbate or to discuss anal sex. I also bought a book called Growing Up Great by Barbara Comstock. It's great to see such a good film, and I'll get five stars.
   Way too wordy.
His work has received some high praise, but terrible writing. Rush Limbaugh has all but written off the idea of a religion based on statistical analysis. I actually got this for the sake of a gay or bisexual teen boy and want him to know anal sex is ok, that it requires lube, and that it will take until the fifth or sixth time (or sixth time) for it to work. In BDSM, anal sex is defined as intercourse in which one person puts a penis into another's anus. There is no such thing as anus. It's important to define what you're talking about. When I was standing naked in front of her after a bath, she said, "That's your penis." It's a book full of mistakes, and although it was high on grammar and vocabulary levels, it was also well worth the read. Simply put, if you understand all these words, you don't need this book. It's the best of 6 books I've read by Joanna Cole.
