About the Book: A new book from W Publishing Group/HarperCollins 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 Mother & Son, 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.
The book's cover looks neat and clean, with black and blue words on a white background. There are 12 Chapters, including an intro as to why you should read the book, understanding what respect looks like, a game plan, and 9 various topics that are important to helping a mother raise her son. There are also 5 Appendixes with a quick start, checklist, females issues, tell us your story, and 21 days of inspiration. At the end, is a bonus Chapter from the author's other book.
I have two sons, ages 20 and 9, and it is true, that this book could be applicable to both. As a mom, I don't always know how to speak to my son or what to say, since male and female brains are wired differently. This book explains those difference and shows practical ways to talk to my sons so we'll have better communication. I know that's definitely something I'd love to have more of, from my not so talkative boys. I also like that this book includes stories from other moms that shows the issues they have with their sons and how the information in this book helped their relationships.
