Ah - didn't know Jo had written another book (I bought her first book The station at Austin Downs), I had a lot of contact with her and her mum in the past when working in the adjoining rural areas that they were - cheers, MM
I'll go hunt it down now. (Jo and her mum - both OT's and her SIL a speech therapist) worked a lot with a rural brethren community - which she speaks about a bit in her first book (although that's primarily about their move to Cue).

Re: Raising Boys
Thanks for all the replies! Sounds like a good list! Better get my glasses on, once Ive spent some time with the kids and put them each to bed, of course.

Went out and found Jo Jackson King's book today and bought it (Dymocks). It's really well written, also easy to read, she covers a lot of bases. I certainly recommend it alongside the one I put earlier (by Maggie Dent)

I love the Raising Boys book,
Another one I love is called 'Wild at Heart'... which I find really fits with MY boys. And I have 5 of them. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I really like a lot of the things it says.
I want my boys to be BOYS. I do believe they are hard wired differently, men and women are different, boys and girls are different. That doesn't mean that boys aren't sensitive and caring and gentle and helpful.. it just means they are boys, they thrive on responsibility and adventure and the outdoors and being 'grounded' in nature.. snails in pockets, mud on barefeet, scratches on knees and leaves in hair.
So I love that book.
