The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood:A Proven Game Plan For Raising Sons By John Croyle

I received this book from Shelton Interactive for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description:

 If you are the parent of a teenager, you are coming down to what former All-American and one of today's most respected child advocates John Croyle calls the two-minute drill. In football the last two minutes are crucial; the whole game builds to those moments that can determine the final outcome.

The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood is John's game plan that will help moms and dads make sure their sons are ready for authentic manhood. Based on Croyle's life and experience parenting more than 1,800 abused and neglected children on the Big Oak Ranch for Boys and Girls, as well as parenting his two biological children, he drills down into seven actionable life principles drawn from the word "manhood" itself:
M – Master
A – Ask and Listen
N – Never Compromise
H – Handle Responsibility
O – One Purpose
O – One Body
D – Don’t Ever, Ever, Ever Give Up
 
 
My Thoughts:
 
The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood is the first book by John Croyle I have had the pleasure to read. John Croyle writes with authority on raising sons to be men in today's society using teaching from the Bible.  Using an acronym with the letters in Manhood, he lays out 7 principles for our sons. As the mother of a boy this book truly convicted me in many things about raising my son to be a man.  I am hoping my husband will also read this wonderful book to help us bring our son through the fast approaching teenage years and beyond.  I highly recommend this book for anyone raising boys, moms or dads, Mother's Day or Father's Day.  I am reading this book a second time to help reinforce these seven principles and to make sure there isn't anything I missed.  Such a wonderful book.
