In “Secure Daughters, Confident Sons,” Glenn T. Stanton discusses the essential differences between the genders and clearly shows what natural God-given masculinity and femininity look like. While the author recognizes that every person is different and will show their masculinity and femininity to different degrees, he points out that there are basic commonalities when it comes to the essence of being male or female. Stanton offers practical insights into the ways both mothers and fathers can help guide their children into embracing the distinct differences between daughters and sons. This book offers parents rich tools for raising gender-healthy boys and girls who will grow into healthy men and women.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Having been raised in an all-female household with a mainly female extended family, the male gender was a bit of a mystery to me. Reading this book helped me not only to gain valuable information on how to raise a healthy son, but I also acquired insight into some of my husband’s needs and actions. It also showed me how essential it is to have a strong male influence in my daughter’s life. My husband doesn’t read much, but I found myself telling him several times, “You really have to read this book.” Stanton provided interesting, scientific information combined with a Christian perspective. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is trying to raise healthy children in a gender-confused world.
