Book Review and Giveaway: Mother & Son: The Respect Effect by Emerson Eggerichs


Review:
Mothers love their sons. But mothers need to respect their sons, too, whether they deserve it or not. Often moms have difficulty relating to their sons, especially as they get older. This book comes to the rescue! Mother & Son shows moms why respect is so important to sons, what respect looks like and sounds like, what God expects of a mother, how to apply respect-talk, what boys and men innately desire, and more. At the end of the book, you'll find Appendix A: A Quick Start For Those Who Feel Pressed for Time, Appendix B: A Checklist (Apply G.U.I.D.E.S. to His Six Desires: C.H.A.I.R.S.), Appendix C: Daughters, Adult Women, and Mommy Issues, Appendix D: Tell Us Your Story, Appendix E: Emerson's 21 Days of Inspiration in Applying the Respect Message, and a bonus chapter, "The Real Reason to Parent God's Way" from Love & Respect in the Family.

I'm thankful for this book since I myself have two sons (17 & 14 years old). I find Mother & Son very helpful, insightful, and practical. It helps moms understand their sons better and know how to connect with them in more effective & meaningful ways. As several researches reveal and confirm, males do filter their world more through the respect grid than the love grid. No matter how old your son is, this book will be beneficial and relationship-boosting for you. The author offers suggestions for both younger boys and older boys. The respect effect motivates and energizes boys/men. On the other hand, the disrespect is disastrous. I've learned a lot about respect-talk from this book and written down in my notebook what I want to practice saying to my sons. I love this book and highly recommend it to all moms who have a son/sons!

    The Five Love Languages is a great book for spouse and child relationships. Also enjoyed Bringing Up Boys. Thank you for the opportunity to win this book. Sounds like a great book!
