Love is important but it is respect that is the key to your son’s heart.
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.

Emerson was the senior pastor of Trinity Church in Lansing for almost twenty years. He and Sarah have been married since 1973 and have three adult children.
Great book! Wish I had it when I raised 2 boys, but mine are now 33 and 37. I will say this though they turned out well. They was respectful boys but I believe it was way they was bought up. They grew to respect me as well as I did them. This book would of made it easier. A mother's love is important but respect is the key to her son's heart. I agree daughters are usually most always Daddy's girl. I was and it is different then a relationship between father and son or daughter and mother. My mother and I never clicked. Emerson Eggerichs give many examples with heartfelt letters from many mothers. He shows helpful tips to help show ways to get respect. Boys need respect no matter there age. Think it is a wonderful books for mom's. Lot of research involved.
