Many parents want to teach train their boys to be virtuous and self-sufficient, but aren't sure how because they were never taught themselves. The two books in the Lessons in Responsibility for Boys from Pearables are designed to aid this task by teaching everything from personal hygiene to developing a daily routine. While there is encouragement toward virtuous living here, unlike most Pearables materials the emphasis is primarily practical, guiding boys toward manhood and its obligations.

Each book is divided into 30 weekly lessons, with two pages of text to be read aloud by the parent, tasks to perform, and a coloring page. Each chapter demonstrates a virtue (like faithfulness, or gentlemanly behavior) through hands-on activities that require putting it into practice. Boys learn how to dress appropriately for a given situation, the best way to accomplish basic chores and yardwork, organizational methods for ordering their time, taking care of personal possessions, and much more.

Self-sacrifice is encouraged throughout both texts, and taking care of oneself is always presented in the context of taking care of others and pleasing God in every aspect of life. Charts help boys stay focused and mark progress, and because pages are reproducible you can use these with each of your sons. Be aware—most conscientious parents will teach the things in these books to their sons naturally in the course of daily life. But if you need help focusing your practical instruction, or were never really trained yourself,Lessons in Responsibility for Boyscan be helpful.
