Michael G. Thompson, Ph.D. is a psychologist, school consultant, and author or co-author of eight books. Many years ago when I was volunteering with a children’s group, I was given his classic bestseller, Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys. Fast forward to March 2008 and Dr. Thompson has a new book It’s a Boy!: Your Son’s Development from Birth to Eighteen published.
Well, initially he declined (he does have a full schedule!). The great thing though is that I never received that email response. I did receive his second e-mail. His It’s a Boy! co-author Teresa Barker had encouraged him to reconsider. It turns out that I’m the first “mommy blogger” to reach out to them, so…long story shortened… Dr. Thompson is going to answer our questions (yay!). Sometimes, you luck out just by being first, right?
Here’s where you all come in …what question would you like to ask Dr. Thompson? Please leave your question in the “Comments” section below or email your questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 31st.
**Everyone is welcome to participate in this “call for questions” including other bloggers — I’m totally alright with other bloggers asking their readers for questions and posting the completed Q&A on their blogs once it’s done in September…I think that Dr. Thompson is that helpful!**
