Flight Plan your mission to become a man by Lee Burns + Braxton Brady
A life of greater possibilities, potentials and passions awaits the emerging young man. Flight Plan is a resource and source of instruction and encouragement for boys, their parents, and other adults who work with boys. This book is written with the aim of offering boys a vision and definition of manhood before they get there, a framework for considering the challenges of adolescence, and tools and strategies for making healthy and appropriate choices during those years.
This is an EXCELLENT resource for anyone with middle school age (or older) boys. I have been discussing some of these topics with my own boys of this age...but this book has given them and their father a way to discuss things that boys need a GUY to talk to about! I am soooo happy to have found this book!
Flight Plan gives young boys the 'straight talk' that they need as they are getting into puberty. It maps out God's plan for their lives and gives them Biblical sources and a sound guide that is in their own language. There are questions at the end of each chapter that help to bring about discussion with older boys and adults which will help them as they journey throughout their lives and strive to become the Man that God has planned for them. It discusses everything from sex & drugs (which many parents find very hard to broach with their kids) to peer pressure and how to view girls as someone else's future wife and how to treat them with respect.
I found this book to be a great resource and plan to find another copy for my younger son who will be in need of it in a couple more years. I give it a 5/5! If you have boys....or if you have influence on boys....this is a great book to have on your bookshelf. Give it as a gift to your son, nephew, husband, or another boy whom you love!
