Welcome to another book review here at Createyou86. This book was interesting for me to read because it is all about boys becoming men, and how mother's may have more trouble raising boys than girls because well....we are girls, and we understand them better.
Not yet being a mother myself i got some great insight from Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. I agree, and disagree with Dr. Eggerichs method. He believes that while showing love is important to a son, showing him respect is the key to his heart, and is what will transform the mother, and son relatioship.
I agree that mother's should show their children respect regardless of gender, but the children should also be first, and foremost respectful of the parent who not only gave them life, but is raising them in their household, with their money, under their roof, and providing for them anything that they might need (in most cases).
The first chapter of this book is full of mother's stories about how they have connected with their father's, and how the mother doesn't feel the connection because she connects better with her daughter. This book explains how listening, and having an interest in your son's life through mutual respect can help build the mother, and son bond.
I woud recommend this book to anyone mother or father who might be struggling to understand their young boy, or who wants to build a greater parental bond.
