Book Review: Mother & Son

Mothers know that sons are not daughters, but are often unsure how that plays out in day-to-day life.  Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, noted for marriage counseling, now offers mothers some practical help with raising sons in Mother & Son.

The differences between love and respect are sometimes subtle, but boys crave respect and seldom get it.  I would describe the respect they need as this: letting your son know you believe in the man he is becoming.  The author offers examples of what respect may look like for both young boys and young men.

Add this book to your home, pastoral, or church library.  If you leave a comment on the blog, I will enter your name in a drawing for a free copy of Mother & Son.  Drawing will take place June 6.
