Mothers of Boys

Tips on raising happy boys. From The Telegraph.

 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/11213834/How-do-you-raise-happy-boys.html

I loved this article and I'm in total agreement with the snacks, sticks, sellotape and plastic bags although I did feel a little emotional reading “A son is a son till he takes a wife, a daughter’s a daughter the rest of her life." 

My first bit advice to other, newer mothers of boys is to think of them in the same way you think of dogs: walk them at least once a day no matter what the weather, and feed them whooping great bowlfuls of food regularly and often. Then they'll be your best friends (and be less likely to tear your house apart mid-morning.)
