Mother & Son: The Respect Effect

(Disclosure:  I received this book in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions are my own)

I have three sons.  They range in ages of 8-11.  That is a lot of testosterone in my home.  We have our battles.  Daily it seems.  Sometimes it is so overwhelming dealing with all the different issues we have to deal with having all boys.  Each one of my boys are unique in their own way and it is amazing to see the differences each one of them have, but one thing they all have in common is that they need respect.  While reading the book Mother & Son: The Respect Effect, I have cried and thought to myself, "man I need to be a better mom".  This book has made me think about the interactions I have which each of the boys, together and individually.  It really has opened my eyes.  Dr. Emerson Eggerichs really nails it in this book.  I loved reading his previous Love and Respect book so I knew that this would be amazing, and it didn't disappoint.  My favorite thing about this book is that it includes real life stories from moms and sons.  Those true stories really inspired me and helped me realize that I am not alone in this journey.  If you have a son, this book is a definite read!

About this book:

A new book from W Publishing Group/Harper Collins asks you to consider the all-important mother/son relationship in a new way: respect, as in the mother should respect the son.

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, author of Love and Respect-a landmark book that transformed millions of marital relationships-is launching his latest book, Mother & Son: The Respect Effect.  In this book Dr. Eggerichs proposes that while showing love is important to a son, showing him respect is key to his heart, and what will transform the mother/son relationship.  Of course, to a lot of people, that will sound backwards-shouldn't it start with the son respecting the mother??
Since the importance of the mother/son relationship crosses all age/race/religion barriers, this is a topic applicable to all-regardless if they agree or disagree with Dr. Eggerichs' method.
