Mother and Son


“We’ve coached fathers on how to love their daughters, but we’ve not coached mothers on how to meet the need a boy has to feel respected for who he is. This is what Mother & Son is all about.“ – Dr. Emerson Eggerichs

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

Author of the landmark book that transformed millions of marital relationships with a biblical understanding of love and respect— Love & Respect—Dr. Emerson Eggerichs now applies these principles to one of the most important relationships of all in his new book Mother & Son: The Respect Effect (Thomas Nelson).

As a researcher, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, who has a Ph.D. in child and family ecology from Michigan State University, garnered testimonies from thousands of mothers following the release of his New York Times bestseller, Love & Respect. These moms consistently reported that they applied the respect side of the message with their sons and experienced significant effects. Read more at

My thoughts and giveaway:

Whether you have read Love and Respect for husbands and wives or not you will enjoy this book. I have learned so much and realized that a lot of the ways I speak to my son are not respectful.

I also realize I can’t change overnight. But part of it is being aware of our own behavior. If we, as mothers, put into practice the advice in this book it could dramatically change our relationships with our sons.

As I was reading I was even thinking my husband could gain insight into his relationship with our son. Even though he is a man and wants respect too, I think men can forget that their son’s desire the same thing. So I honestly think dad’s could read this book and learn new things as well.

If you have a son I highly recommend this book. We all want strong young men of honor, let’s breath that into them no matter what age they are at.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your favorite retailer.
