More About Mother & Son by Ph.D. Emerson Eggerichs
 
 
 
Overview

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.

Just as Emerson Eggerichs transformed millions of marital relationships with a biblical understanding of love and respect, he now turns these principles to one of the most important relationships of all, a mother and her son.

Eggerichs (Love & Respect in the Family) believes that girls need love from their mothers, and boys need respect from them. This simple thesis is the jumping-off point for the latest parenting book from the pastor, speaker, and conductor of the Love and Respect Conference. Building off his GUIDES checklist (giving, understanding, instructing, disciplining, encouraging, supplicating) of parenting techniques for mothers, Eggerichs also suggests applying the CHAIRS checklist of boys’ needs: conquest, hierarchy, authority, insight, relationship, and sexuality. In chapters pegged to the CHAIRS concept, Eggerichs explains the mother-son relationship through scriptural exegesis as well as drawing on the work of several sociologists and personal testimonials. The book offers a glut of information and advice, though the writing can be dense and unwieldy. Eggerichs’s overall thesis seems to reinforce gender stereotypes; a chapter titled “An Empathetic Look at the Motherly Objections to Respecting a Boy” defends the book against charges of sexism. Eggerichs’s ideas and confident and commanding voice will appeal to conservative Christian parents who desire a new way of relating to male children. (Apr.)
