Love is important, but it is respect that is the key to your son's heart.
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.
Just 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 writing is straight to the point and applicable. I am using this teaching and the stories to build a solid foundation of respect with my 8 year old son.
Reading this book opened my perspective to life through the eyes of men and boys.
To think I was so naive. I didn't know what I didn't know.
loved it, thank you for opening my eyes on such an important topic in my 2 sons life's I have started appling it and what a difference it has already started making in my 6 & 7 year old boys. I'm for ever greatful.
in fact I want to buy a hard copy so I can take notes. putting just a few things in place that Emerson talks about and I already noticed a difference in my relationship with my son AND my husband!!
I gained much valuable information from this book. When the teaching is applied to the relationship between me and my son or husband I am humbled.
This is a must read for all. This is life giving for both, men and women. Truth that we may not have fully grasped before, laid out clearly.
this book is practical and should be read by every mother with sons. I recommended it to many of my friends already.
It took a while to get through because there were so many new insights I needed time to reflect on and begin implementing before continuing through the chapters. An indespensible resource for any mother of boys!
Author has no emotion in his voice. It sounds like these are the issues he had as a kid and this message may relate with some people but his ideas are not a universal truth. His analogies and examples are bordeline pointless. No fluidity in subject which makes it incredibly hard to follow.
