From the New York Times best-selling author of Love & Respect comes the definitive book for mothers and sons.
Love is important but it is respect that is the key to your son's heart.
As Emerson Eggerichs transformed millions of marital relationships with a biblical understanding of love and respect, he now turns these principles to one of the most important relationships of all, a mother and her son.
The idea of moms respecting their sons may sound alien to some, but it seems to ignite curiosity across the board. It is easy to relate to the need for all of us to feel a mother's love, but is that the same thing as respect? Even for young boys, the effect of respect is nothing short of astounding when applied properly.
Moms yearn to learn anything that better helps them with their sons. After all, they love their boys, but many find them more difficult to parent than their girls, especially from age four and up.
What makes this all the more urgent is that moms are coaching fathers to love their daughters, but no one has said boo to moms on specific ways to show respect to their sons, at least not in a way that is applicable and fully explained. All realize that little girls need daddy's love, but who is strongly promoting the truth that little boys (and big ones) need Mom's respect? No wonder mothers feel left in the dark on this topic.
Mother & Son is also available in Spanish, Madre e hijo.

"The message in this helpful audio is that male children have more pride issues and doubts about their worth than most mothers realize. Though mothers typically want to lead with nurturing affection, communicating respect is more important, according to this likable author, who reads his audiobook with the comfortable security you'd expect from a child and family scholar and former Christian pastor. Along with his pleasing baritone voice, his connection with these ideas and lack of pretense are beguiling. He has an appealing colloquial way of offering guidance for typical mother-son conflicts, as well as a writing style that is perfect for expressing what all family members can give to one another. In both words and speech, this is palpable wisdom that all moms with sons will find immensely helpful. T.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
