    The book provided some basic and useful pieces of advice The author gives examples from her own experiences or from those of close friends I liked the reflective questions at the end of each chapter The book is Christian based with references to scriptures If that isn t your cup of tea, you might want to skip this book or skip those parts At the end of the book, there is a chapter encouraging moms to rediscover and find time for themselves especially when they are in the empty nest phase O The book provided some basic and useful pieces of advice The author gives examples from her own experiences or from those of close friends I liked the reflective questions at the end of each chapter The book is Christian based with references to scriptures If that isn t your cup of tea, you might want to skip this book or skip those parts At the end of the book, there is a chapter encouraging moms to rediscover and find time for themselves especially when they are in the empty nest phase Overall the book was positive

    This book was received from a First Reads giveaway.When I requested this book I was over the moon about what else I could do to connect with my teenager We have a great relationship he s a great kid active in the community, great grades, independent, kind and apathetic I want to make sure if there was something else I could do to be close with him that I was investigating itbecause for him to still want to be seen with me in public and have him throw his arm around me and walk around a sto This book was received from a First Reads giveaway.When I requested this book I was over the moon about what else I could do to connect with my teenager We have a great relationship he s a great kid active in the community, great grades, independent, kind and apathetic I want to make sure if there was something else I could do to be close with him that I was investigating itbecause for him to still want to be seen with me in public and have him throw his arm around me and walk around a store that way, may not last long.I do feel that this book had some good advice I also felt it had some dated advice that my mom who was in her late 60 s when she passed away almost ten years ago would have given me I was a bit turned off by all the religious preaching that I felt I was getting We do pray and have a place for the Lord but I felt that this may beabout religion than helping my son at points in the book In order to put myself back in the right frame of mind, I was reading this to help out my relationship with my son after all, I had to set it down and pick it up once a day to read in small doses It was much better this way, for me, as I could look at it asof an aid, rather than a lecture.TheI read the book, theI felt that this could be read by a male or female parent for a daughter or a son There is a sexist way of thinking in the book that caught me off guard since Fuller previously was a teacher Comments that made woman seem like they were weak and just there to sooth away hurts made me remember that this was written by a woman who was raised in a generation that was brought up thinking this way Women today, at least the moms I know, are not such pushovers and may err on the side of being too aggressive instead of the passive, demure feel I felt that moms are depicted in this book as what they should be like Perhaps it was my mood while reading the book, perhaps it was just the way it made me feel while reading it, but it did make me feel like I was reading a parenting book from the 50 s at times.With that said, a lot of the advice really resounded with me and made perfect sense She breaks the chapters down into different categories and topics that one will come across with their child Some advice never ages Some of her advice has been updated from the 50 s to include comments about technology Fuller, you should most definitely write an etiquette book on technology for EVERYONE I like the way you think regarding it An interesting and knowledgeable book about raising boys

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my fair and honest review.As the title tells us, the book is about what a son needs his mother to think, feel, do, etc., to help him grow into a true man I chose this book right away, as my son has morphed into a being I don t understand at age eight Sometimes it s hard to know what I should and should not react to or the most effective way to communicate with him Cheri Fuller s book is full of such advice She pulls her advice from her expe I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my fair and honest review.As the title tells us, the book is about what a son needs his mother to think, feel, do, etc., to help him grow into a true man I chose this book right away, as my son has morphed into a being I don t understand at age eight Sometimes it s hard to know what I should and should not react to or the most effective way to communicate with him Cheri Fuller s book is full of such advice She pulls her advice from her experience as a mother of sons, grandsons, and a large survey of men of all ages With the advice comes examples of how she s seen it play out in her life and the lives of those around her Not only does she talk about how moms can nurture their son s confidence and emotions, but she also addresses the things moms need to keep under control in order to allow their son to grow Fear and over protection are among the top that stunt a young boy s growth And I d say that goes for girls too She includes stories of good intentions with less than favorable results, which validate her advice and the testimonies of the men surveyed.Unlike other Christian parenting books I ve read, Fuller branches out into schooling with discussion on learning styles and helping your son find his strengths as well as how he learns best, as to help his weaknesses This is an important topic because America s current school system really does work against most boys styles of learning The most successful students are those with involved parents and boys often needunderstanding of how they learn, which a parent would see best.Overall, the book was full of helpful advice Although it s never too late to start connecting with your son, I think I found it at an opportune time

    I thought this book was well done and has helpful advice for moms with sons Growing up I had sisters When I had my son, I felt a little lost and sometimes just bewildered by my boy s behaviors, thoughts, actions, etc.I like the way the book is straight forward with its purpose Each chapter is titled according to what will be talked about, such as A Mom Who Listens and Communicates and A Mom Who Nurtures Her Sons Faith In each chapter she includes tidbits from other authors, whether writi I thought this book was well done and has helpful advice for moms with sons Growing up I had sisters When I had my son, I felt a little lost and sometimes just bewildered by my boy s behaviors, thoughts, actions, etc.I like the way the book is straight forward with its purpose Each chapter is titled according to what will be talked about, such as A Mom Who Listens and Communicates and A Mom Who Nurtures Her Sons Faith In each chapter she includes tidbits from other authors, whether writing on this subject or not, and I appreciated the exposure to their words.For me, this really isn t a book that s read once and put on the shelf There are some chapters that I need to reread and also mark up my book Some of my favorite, albeit challenging, chapters were Chapter 3 A Mom Who Builds Confidence in Her SonChapter 5 A Mom Who Prays for Her SonChapter 8 A Mom Who Understands Her Son s Unique PersonalityChapter 13 A Mom Who Releases Her Son to ManhoodChapter 14 A Mom Who Pursues a Purposeful LifeThe first three areof a challenge to me currently while the last two I look at as helping me for the future.Overall, I like this book I like the way it s written, the way it flows I like the inclusions of quotes by other authors and experts, as well as mothers and sons I also like the questions at the end of the chapters they are challenging because I have to actually look at what I m doing and thinking Sometimes I need to re evaluate.Disclaimer I received this book free from Bethany House publisher for the purpose of an honest review
