Publisher's Summary

On the surface, capable teenage boys may look lazy. But dig a little deeper, writes child psychologist Adam Price in He's Not Lazy, and you'll often find conflicted boys who want to do well in middle and high school but are afraid to fail and so do not try. 

This audiobook can help you become an ally with your son as he discovers greater self-confidence and accepts responsibility for his future.

He is not lazy is phenomenal

Thank you for making such fabulous tool for parents available. It’s amazing how we get stuck in our worlds and don’t even try to understand our own children. What an eye opener! All the problems my son was blamed for, were because of us parents not the child. Thank you for helping us to have fantastic father-son relationship!

Enlightening

Raising a teenage boy is hard. Everything he said that I see my teen as, is spot on! This book helped me to understand him, his internal struggle, & his true needs... not the needs I think he has. This book may have just saved my relationship with my son, but also saved his academic future!!!

Got boys? This will help

We’ve got 3 boys and two of them are teenagers. I found the author’s points to be extremely relevant and helpful to raising boys right now. The book led to several good discussions with my wife and a few tweaks to how we parent. Highly recommended!

Very helpful

I found this book incredibly helpful. I have three sons. Youngest is 17 now and has struggled with many issues that are addressed in the book. Equally important are the challenges that he presented to me as a parent. Thank you.

Finally! A must read for all parents, teachers, therapist, coaches and the list goes on.....

Thank you Adam Price for “that book” the road map to parenting that I couldn’t put down. I will share this book with anyone and everyone I know who has children or deals with children. Every school should have a workshop for parents with this book. So many of us struggle with parenting today and it’s heartbreaking to feel helpless. The tools are here, my husband and I now have a better plan to help our son help himself. Anyone that reads this book will feel the same.

Excellent resource for parents

The author does an excellent job of describing the issues that parents face, and not just those boys who are underperforming in school. The techniques offered to assist motivating boys and to interact differently with your son in a way that helps provides hope that parenting doesn't have to be such a daily intense struggle.

Insight I needed!

Currently raising three teenage boys, 15 year-old twins and a 14 year old, I purchased the book for issues we're having with one of the boys. However, within the first few lines, I realized that it is applicable to all of them! Their father read it, too, and said exactly the same thing. Its helped us understand the changes and challenges they are going through, as well as give us tools to use in parenting them. Very good book, would recommend to anyone raising or working with boys.

Very helpful in understanding my young teenage son

We see continually at odds with each other; me thinking he was being disrespectful and him always thinking I was on his case. I never realized that his brain and self-confidence were growing at the same time his body was changing. I have a much better understanding and this helps when I have to make on-the-fly decisions or impromptu conversations that matter.
