Item description for Hair-Raising Joys of Raising Boys, The by Dave Meurer...

This hilarious yet insightful book explores the meaningful reflections that only dads can truly understand, and brings out the humor in the practical challenges of raising sons.

Publishers Description
"God designed parenthood to be an enormous character-building exercise," says frazzled dad Dave Meurer. In "The Hair-Raising Joys of Raising Boys," he explores the meaningful reflections (a.k.a. the laugh-out-loud occurrences and been-there-done-that moments) that only dads can truly understand. From the seemingly impossible task of imparting moral guidance to getting boys to take their cold medicine, this insightful book brings out the humor in the practical challenges of raising sons. Yes, bringing up boys is a monumental, multiyear battle--and that's just trying to get them to eat their vegetables But with Dave Meurer's help, readers will learn to value each moment with a little style, humor, and grace.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hair-Raising Joys of Raising Boys, The?

Not what I was expecting  Jan 13, 2009
One dad's adventures, but it seemed pretty tame (and not the best writing either). Also, it had a decidely Christain-bent which I didn't expect.
Laughed out loud!  Jul 2, 2007
This book is great, quick read. I disagree that the Biblical references took away from this book -- if anything, I thought it drove home the book's message: Children learn from from what you do, not from what you say.

Merurer tells a story about trying to sit down and tell the story of David & Goliath to his two young sons... it inevitably turns into a fiasco of bodily-function-humor and when the boys finally get the message, it turns out to be as a result of something they observed their Dad doing when he didn't realize they were paying attention.

Half way through the book, I thought back and couldn't remember the author having come right out with a step-by-step... then I realized that he gets "it" across to the reader the same way he gets "it" across to his boys... with his actions.
Funny and an easy read  Jun 19, 2007
This is a great beach book or a fun little gift for anyone expecting a boy. Laugh out loud funny at times. My only complaint is the author's dependence on bible references. We get it. You're religious. But even as a catholic, I found it a bit preachy at times. It took away from the humor of the book.
