What I'm Reading

My Thoughts

Of all the people in the world, you, Mom,
make the biggest difference in your son's world.
- Dr. Kevin Leman

I am always looking for books geared towards moms of boys. With 3 sons of my own, I am always wanting to learn more about mothering my boys and was so glad to find What a Difference a Mom Makes by Dr. Kevin Leman.

In this book he shares valuable insight and advice on the stages of boys from babyhood to college. He talks about topics from discipline to sexuality and how to navigate the changes in the relationship between mother and son along the way.

My favorite part of the book is when Dr. Leman shares
what our boys need most from us as moms.

  • He needs to be respected.
  • He needs to be needed.
  • He needs to be fulfilled as a man.

About the Book

Every mom wants the best for her son. She wants him to succeed in life, to be a man of character, to find a good woman, to be a great dad. But sometimes boys are hard for moms to understand. They need a mother who is engaged and interested in them, because a mom is the most important person in a boy's life.

In What a Difference a Mom Makes, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman uses his wit and wisdom to show Mom how to lay the groundwork that will allow her son to grow into a good man.

  3. Respect is always, always a word that comes up when talking about males. Praying for us to respect our boys (and husbands too). It's easy to respect them, but a good reminder too, that it's oh so important for them.
