Growing gorgeous boys to good men.

Adolescent boys seem to disappear into another world where they barely communicate, and where fast cars, alcohol and drugs are constant temptations.

How do you raise boys to men in a world where trouble beckons at every turn? How do you make sure they learn the right lessons, stay out of danger, find a path to follow? How do you ensure they’ll be ok?

As a crucial part of the NZ Good Man Project,Celia’s insights into what boys need – and what parents can do to help them – are ground-breaking.

After years working in the prison service, Celia Lashlie knows what can happen when boys make the wrong choices. She also knows what it’s like to be a parent - she raised a son on her own and feared for his survival. As a crucial part of the NZ Good Man Project, she talked to 180 classes of boys throughout the country. Her insights into what boys need - and what parents can do to help them - are ground-breaking.

Celia Lashlie reveals what goes on inside the world of boys. She offers parents - especially mothers - practical and reassuring advice on raising their boys to become good, loving, articulate men.

Researcher and Social Justice Advocate Celia Lashlie is the author of two best-selling books. Her first book The Journey to Prison: Who goes and why? was published in 2002 and was followed in 2005 with the hugely successful He'll be OK: Growing Gorgeous Boys into Good Men, a book based on the Good Man Project she undertook in 25 boys' schools in New Zealand. Celia’s books will be for sale on the night.
