5 Conversations you must have with your son by Vicki Courtney

I have 3 sons, so it stands to reason that this book caught my attention. I have read and reviewed other books by Vicki Courtney so I knew I would enjoy this one as well. There are 17 chapters that cover 5 conversations: Its OK to be a man, What you don't learn to conquer may become your master, Not every one's doing it, It's time to grow up, and Godly men are in short supply. This book can be used to help guide the necessary conversations parents need to have with their son from a small age to a much older age. As a parent you must use discretion on when the time is appropriate for each conversation to take place. The chapters are filled with tips and facts to help guide these necessary conversations.
In reading this book I realized I have already started to implement some of these topics in conversation with my 3 boys. I found a lot of information helpful. I did however disagree with the author on some of the sexual topics ( but remember as parents it is our God given authority to decide where, when and how those conversations take place..use your own judgment in this area).   
There is a sister book to this one, 5 Conversations you must have with your Daughter. I have one of those too so that looks like a future read for me. Overall, good book with sound Godly and practical advice.
*This book was sent to me by in exchange for my honest review.
