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.

    I did not know it was so bible based . I was open to some theology but it turned into 95% scripture quotes.

    Although a lengthy listen, the value of the content is worth it. I wish I had read this when my son was little...very helpful information on raising boys with practical advice and guidance rooted in a Bible-based philosophy. The bonus is the content also provides insight on men in general and frankly provides tools for engaging respectfully with anyone. I have already recommended this book to others!

    It's kind of counter cultural in our present culture but be that as it may... It works. I've tried it and it's surprising. it opens doors of communication and best of all, it's truth.
