Description

“Raising Black Boys to Men: A Mother’s Guide to Raising Thugless Sons” is a candid book of one mother’s journey: her successes, trials, and errors, in raising her three boys, in a society that glorifies thug-life.

Author, Patricia Joseph, who successfully navigated the lives of her three sons, through the ever so present negative influences in society, felt compelled to write about her experience in raising thugless sons. Patricia credits much of her success to just “good, ole-fashion child rearing.”

Patricia cleverly sprinkles humor throughout the book, and provides laughter to the role of parenting. The book is a short, quick-read, which can be read in a few hours. At the end of each chapter, Patricia provides “Mom Tips,” which are little nuggets of information, for moms to reference long after reading the book.

All readers will enjoy the heart-felt emotion of Patricia’s call-to-action: “Save Our Sons.” Also, readers will come to understand the unique challenges African-American mothers’ face, with raising their boys.
