Publisher's Summary

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.

This Served a need

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.

Most Insightful Parenting Book I've Read

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!

I was clueless and loosing my son’s heart, thank you for the insight on respect

The light is finally on! I am
not only inspired but motivated to fill my son’s need for respect and what a huge difference its made in our relationship. Thank you for gently guiding this emotional momma to understanding the differences in our needs, neither being wrong, just different. God be the glory!
