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.
