Dave Willis – Raising Boys Who Respect Girls


Dave Willis, author, speaker, and father of four boys, talks biblically and practically about how to raise a generation of boys who are champions, encouragers, and respecters of women.

In the #metoo and #churchtoo era, with so many men and boys continuing to make the same mistakes, we have to ask: Where are we going wrong? And perhaps more importantly, how do we raise up men who will break this cycle?

As the father of four boys, relationship coach and author Dave Willis has studied this issue deeply, concluding that if we are to raise boys to respect girls – and not end up with men who say they respect women but whose actions reveal otherwise – we must go back to the heart of things. Or, more specifically, we must go back to our own hearts.

In Raising Boys Who Respect Girls, Willis helps listeners inventory the blind spots that lead to accidental forms of disrespect, showing how to root out issues in our own hearts before we inadvertently pass along these same issues to our boys. He also teaches listeners how to cultivate a healthy respect for God and for themselves as created in his image, as well as a similar respect for others. Full of Scripture, research, age-specific tools, and conversation models, this audiobook offers a practical strategy for mindful parents to first embody the right principles themselves and then teach them to their sons.

My husband feels dads are underrepresented in the parenting blog community. I look at tons of Instagram profiles showing toddler foods or advice on tantrums and he wants nothing to do with it. Dads get the short end of the stick. Then I started following Clint and the funny memes, quotes and content started appealing to him. I got the audio book so we could listen together and it was a HUGE success. Ive never seen him laugh so hard. The unspoken husband/wife battle about keeping score and who changes the next diaper particularly resonated with him…so much that he laughed so loud and woke up the sleeping baby in the car. Theres a point to be made here but Ill let that one go and instead say that this book is awesome. Get it, read it, listen to it, and take a breath knowing youre not alone.
