The Prince Boofhead Syndrome
Michael Carr-Gregg and Elly Robinson
Rating: 5 / 5
We’ve all met ‘boofheads’—over-indulged teenage boys who expect the world and give nothing in return. So what do you do when your once loveable son becomes a card-carrying member of the Prince Boofhead Club?
Psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg and researcher Elly Robinson’s book is the perfect manual for frazzled parents. It covers all bases: why some teenage boys fall into the ‘boofhead’ trap, how you can prevent this happening and what you can do to manage a situation if it has reached crisis point. Their message is clear: parents must establish behavioural boundaries early on, stick to them and learn to say ‘no’.
While the authors are clear about the challenges parents face, this book provides parents and educators with straightforward and well-researched advice.
