What a Son Needs From His Mom by Cheri Fuller
I have just finished reading What a Son Needs From His Mom by Cheri Fuller. This book is just what it sounds like! A great book which helps moms understand/relate to/teach/parent, etc their son(s).
As a female who grew up in a household of sisters, there are times that I look at my son and what he's doing and think, "what IS this weird thing they call a boy?!" :) Just kidding, but truthfully, having a son has really been full of surprises. I love him so much and want to help him grow into the man God intends him to be. There are definitely big differences in raising our daughters and our sons. This book is a wonderful resource for helping me to see my role in his life and for helping me understand some of what makes him, as a boy, so special.
Different sections of the book deal with helping your son as he develops confidence, character, emotions, faith. Sections on praying for your son, listening to your son, encouraging your son. And others. The last sections of the book address "letting go" -- "Releasing your son to manhood." All kinds of topics. It's a great book. I took a long time to read this book, not because it was difficult to read or boring--it definitely was not--truthfully, I just didn't want to miss anything!
It's a valuable book. I would definitely recommend it. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to read this book and will keep it on my shelf with the intention of re-reading it, probably more than once! It is a great book for a mother or grandmother of a boy.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
