Présentation de l'éditeur

Does your son tend to be disturbed by loud noises, violence, and crowds, fearful of new situations, easily hurt by criticism, or hesitant about playing aggressive games?

Your son may be one of the 20 percent of all boys with a finely tuned nervous system. Our sensitive boys tend to be creative, kind, and gentle, appreciating beauty and feeling love deeply. Therefore, it's particularly challenging for sensitive boys to grow up in a culture where boys are taught to act tough, aggressive, and unemotional.

In this groundbreaking book, psychologist Ted Zeff explores the unique challenges of sensitive boys, showing parents, educators, and mentors how to help sensitive boys grow into strong, happy, and confident men. Dr. Zeff offers practical advice on how to help your son increase his self-esteem and thrive in the family, at school, with friends, and in sports.

From the Publisher:

This book is also important for sensitive men to read to help them heal their childhood wounds, learn how to navigate through our aggressive, overstimulating world, and accept themselves as sensitive men. This book is helpful for sensitive women since how society treats sensitive men deeply affects highly sensitive women--and all women close to sensitive males.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Relieving, self-healing read 1 mars 2012

Let me start by saying that I, myself, am a 19 year old boy who knew there was "something wrong" with me for as long as I can remember. I have always been artistically inclined and deeply moved by emotions I always kept hidden. My parents weren't the most supportive and I really didn't "bond" with neither one of them. I decided to move out of the toxic environment that is my house and through some self-realization and self-healing I decided to order the book "The Strong, Sensitive Boy." I actually found it while browsing for other books and it caught my attention. Since I knew that I have always been a sensitive boy, I figured why not? This book has changed my life. I think this is perhaps the only book that truly helped me find myself. After reading it, I realized that I have been lying to myself all these years pretending to be something I am not. Now, as a 19 year old college student, after so many years, I have finally found myself. This book is a great healing book for those sensitive boys whose wounds were invisible to everyone else. I have never had a problem discussing my emotions with true friends who care about me and this is why I am not ashamed to recommend this book for any guy who grew up putting up a persona that the world would approve of instead of the who they truly are.

If you are a parent: Please don't belittle your sensitive son or daughter, for that matter. Take it from someone who suffered emotional and physical abuse from his parents, the wounds are real and will haunt him a lifetime. It is your job as a parent to protect him in a world in which he will most likely find himself alone. And if you are a dad, well...the only thing I can say is that you should love your son for who he is, not who you want him to be. Remember he didn't come into this earth, he came out of it. The human condition has many faces and forms (attending college and accepting myself has really helped me enlighten myself). He will need a permanent, strong male role model. After two decades, I have yet to feel any love from my dad other than the one he pulls out of his wallet and although, I resent him for a lot of things, this book has helped me accept that his skewed view of what it is to be a man is paradoxically ironic for a true man is not the cold, quiet, strong figure that our culture portrays it to be but rather, one who stands up for what he believes is right.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 wonderful book and resource! 23 mai 2010
Par momofHSC - Publié sur
I just finished reading "The Strong, Sensitive Boy" and feel like I have blueprint how to raise my son. I live in the U.S. and was struck how Dr. Zeff's research indicated that it was so much easier for sensitive boys who grew up in other cultures. However, I now know how to make sure my son doesn't suffer. I'm going to follow the suggestions about making sure my son feels comfortable in school and not shamed by teachers or bullies, and if public school doesn't work I will look for alternative schools or home school him myself. I learned that it's important for my son to learn how to interact with non-highly sensitive children, but in a way that works for him. There's so much valuable information for both my husband and me how to raise my son's self-esteem from from encouraging him in the sports that he is drawn to, to helping him accept his physical and emotional attributes to encouraging his spiritual side . The stories from the sensitive men thatDr. Zeff interviewed were amazing and really helped me understand what my son needs. I highly recommend this book for parents and I think the book would also help sensitive men heal their childhoods.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book contains invaluable advice for raising boys 14 juillet 2011
Par Vaughn Paul Manley - Publié sur
I am the dad of a sensitive boy and am so glad that I read Dr. Zeff's book. Although my son is only four years old I can see referring to this book during each stage of his life. I was raised in a typical aggressive boy culture where any boy who showed emotions was humiliated and I don't want my son to go through the emotional pain that I experienced. I particularly liked the chapter about dads raising sensitive boys and the need for men to question their own beliefs about what it means to be a man and look for new definitions of masculinity. Dr. Zeff has many pertinent suggestions of how to encourage and praise your son's sensitivity as well as how to help him make friends with other children who will respect his sensitivity. I strongly recommend reading this wonderful resource for raising your son.

I was really hoping this book would give me some good suggestions about how to help my son - but I feel like the vast majority of it is either research based/descriptive of the condition of being highly sensitive, OR terrible story after terrible story of how highly sensitive boys have been mistreated by their teachers/parents/peers, etc. Obviously anyone who cared enough to read a book like this is not going to treat their son the way some of these moms have....there is VERY little in the way of actual concrete things you can do help you child. I'm going to hang on to it in hopes that I'll find it more useful in the future (my son is only four) - but if you are looking for ways to help your child build their tolerance to things that overstimulate or upset them, this is not your book.

Exposes Our Male Culture of Cruelty and Its Devastating Effects on the Young

This is a really good book that everybody needs to read, not just the parents of highly sensitive boys. If I could I would make it a 10 star. It's not a fun book to read, but a deeply saddening and troubling one because it exposes the fact that we and our cultural backwardness are the cause of our own problems. When I read that 80% of boys raised in the North American cultures of the United States and Canada are taught that no emotions are acceptable except anger, I was deeply saddened. Yet, even though this book brought back some unhappy memories of my own childhood as a female HSP, it also made me feel better about it because I realized that all the bad things that happened to me weren't my fault.

Also, although the author didn't say anything about it, I couldn't help but think that we are breeding our boys for war. I may be wrong, but that's the only thing I can think of that a person who is in a constant state of anger and combativeness would be good for. I looked up the top ten weapons makers in the world, and guess what? Numbers 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 and 9 (6 in all) are situated in the United States. To me that suggests that we've got to have wars so that all these young men we have brought up to have angry, combative personalities can have something to do and the weapons makers can sell their weapons. I keep wondering which one of these came first, the weapons industry or the teaching of our sons to be killers.

It's not hard to understand why we have so much violent crime in this country, both in and outside the family, and so many broken homes. One wonders if this is going to go on until we blow ourselves off the face of the earth, or are enough people going to wake up to the devastating effects of this culture of cruelty in time to save us.

The author also speaks of the cultural and media driven notion that there is only one type of body a man can have if he is to be successful, powerful, virile and masculine, and that is a highly muscular one. With this idea promulgated everywhere, why are we condemning the young men and boys who are desperate to get the approval of society for using steroids to get our culture's idea of the ideal body? In fact, this is the only way a young man with an ectomorphic physique can get a muscular body no matter how much time he spends in a gym. Are we that much in denial or just incredibly stupid?

There is also the matter of the highly sensitive male automatically being stereotyped as a homosexual when there is no scientific proof whatsoever that that is so. But we have a culture that is bound and determined to believe that anyone who doesn't fit our concept of what is masculine must be feminine. There is no room for any other type of person. What I want to know is what do people think about Jesus Christ? He was compassionate. He was kind. Have all those he-men who claim to be devout Christians been worshipping a homosexual all these centuries? Why does he get respect when other men with these same traits don't? How can you both approve and disapprove of the same thing at the same time?

Check out some of the highly sensitive men's stories in this book. Some of them are tragic and heartbreaking. They were not acceptable human beings to their parents, teachers, school officials and other boys who often bullied and beat them unmercifully on a continuing basis. What would you do if you were in this position and had no one to turn to? Some teens and children could find no alternative but to commit suicide. As far as I'm concerned, the blood of these youngsters is on the hands of our "wonderful" American culture. Frankly I think it's the epitome of hypocrisy to call ourselves the kindest, most generous people in the world when we hold up angry, violent males as the ideal of American manhood. Every so often some of these hypocrites make a lot of noise about wanting to ban guns as if guns were the cause of the problem. I shouldn't have to say this because common sense should tell you that violent people will use whatever is at hand to beat and maim others. They don't necessarily have to have guns. What we need is a culture with a different attitude, a grown up attitude, if that's possble.

Long ago a famous author named Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem about what it takes to be a man. The poem was called "If," and it, too, became very famous. Some thoughtful fathers hung copies of it on the walls of their sons' rooms. The language is a little archaic for people today, but it would behoove a lot of people in this country to take heed because it never mentions the flashy muscle guy or the tough, heartless and cruel combatant. Instead it talks about having faith and trust in yourself; having the courage of your convictions; having the patience to see a thing through to its conclusion; avoiding lies and hate, your own and that of others; the courage and fortitude to rebuild your life even though you may have lost everything and have to start over with nothing; not being a whiner; being impervious to the taunts and slights of lesser men(and they are lesser men because if they weren't they'd be too noble and high minded to taunt and slight others. Those are the actions of little men.); to have the ability to speak with and relate to people on all levels of society without treating them as either inferiors or superiors.

The ideas in this poem strike me as better precepts for boys to grow up with than glorifying behavior that is turning all too many men into detriments to society rather than assets.

In conclusion, the book is loaded with helpful information to use to help a boy who is an HSP, and I think, is a must for anyone that has a child like this in their family. Considering what we are up against, we need all the help we can get. We are a genuine minority group whose rights are being trampled all over big time. We need to organize and start demanding change. Changes that are good for us will be good for every human being. Don't believe for a moment that those guys can't express anything but anger aren't suffering. Their families and society as a whole are suffering too.
