Full description of the book Boys of Few Words : Raising Our Sons to Communicate and Connect:When your son responds to personal questions with a blank stare, or quickly changes the topic, you might chalk it up to "boys will be boys"--but still worry that something is missing in your relationship or troubling your child. You could be right on both counts. Whether your son needs to talk more, or just more effectively, this practical book will help you raise him to communicate and connect. Psychologist Adam Cox helps boys of all ages and their parents work together to overcome the innate brain differences, social pressures, guardedness, and learning and attention problems that often leave PDF males at a communication disadvantage. With Dr. Cox's expert guidance, you can identify the camouflage boys use to deflect attention and learn useful ways to foster self-expression--from engaging preschoolers in imaginative wordplay to using creative conversation starters with sullen teenagers.
About the author Adam J. CoxAdam Cox, PhD, is a board-certified clinical psychologist who directs a private group practice focusing on children's mental health and emotional well-being, with a special emphasis on emotional literacy, learning disabilities, and ADHD.

Dr. Cox's work has been cited in Time, Family Circle, and The Philadelphia Inquirer, and he has appeared on Philadelphia's NBC 10! and NPR's Voices in the Family.
