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!

Like finding pure gold!!!!!<br />

I am a divorced mom with a 13 year old son. He has a very kind, loving heart but we struggle daily with the respect issue, ie. getting things done when I tell him to, being honest about turning in homework, following house rules related to internet and technology. I am frustrated with our relationship and often feel like I am failing him when I tongue lash him hoping to negatively motivate him. Before reading this book I already new tongue lashing and taking away his phone or video games was not working. Now I know why. He thinks very differently because he is a male. His thinking isn't wrong, it is just different. This book has given me tools to approach him differently and I have seen great changes. I still resort to my female methods at times but just like any other habit, approaching him with respect speech is a conscious decision that is becoming a habit. I have hope that our relationship will be even stronger with these tools! I hope that as I start demonstrating respect speech to him he will seek out a mate that will not brow beat him and he will desire to respectfully love on a wife and bring her the security she will desire. Thank you so very much for writing this book. My mom raised 5 sons and she even commented on how great the content was! The narration is great as well, a very easy listen. I will play this book over and over.
