Are you tired of finding towels on the bathroom floor? Have you ever walked through a supermarket with a thirty-five-year-old child who wants only the most expensive things on the shelves? How do you go about making men understand the difference between helping out with the housework and doing it? And what about violence? "Help! I'm Living with a Man Boy" has forty-one practical scenarios that many women will identify with immediately plus suggestions for dealing with these situations. This book is about relationships. Its overall aim is to encourage women and men to look more honestly at the way they relate to each other, and to strive for a personal maturity that will allow each of them to enter into the give and take that constitutes relationships based on genuine love, respect and equality. The focus is on men's emotional maturity and the harmful and destructive behaviour which usually accompanies such immaturity. Betty McLellan is careful to point out, that this does not describe all men. Some men have achieved maturity and are contributing in a mature way to their relationships. Others, she admits have a long way to go.
About the Author
A psychotherapist with over 20 years experience, McLellan discusses the need for honesty in relationships. Throughout the book, the author speaks directly to women about the devastating effects on them
"Boys will be boys: we have heard it--and even said it--to let men off the hook. But as Betty McLellan shows, it's not good for boys, for men, for women--or for society--to make such excuses. It's in everyone's interest that men are held responsible for their own bad behavior." --Dale Spender, author, "Man Made Language"
