Mother & Son: The Respect Effort
I am currently doing Emerson Eggerichs’ book Love and Respect with our ladies group at church. This book….my husband read it first and said that it was spot on and that I needed to read it. Well, I have 7 kids….so my reading time consists mainly of Dr. Seuss. When the opportunity came up to read it, at church, I took it. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and there have been a lot of “aha” moments.
Enter this giveaway…when I saw the author’s name, I thought “hmmmm, I know that name” and when I read further down it was talking about respecting your son so they grow up knowing what Biblical respect is. I have 4 sons ranging in age from 15-2 and I can honestly say that respecting them has never entered my mind. I always talk to them about respecting me, their dad, adults, etc but for *me* to respect my son, my child was foreign. I can say that it is foreign no more! What an eye opener for me. My prayer is that I can utilize these tools and learn how to effectively respect my boys…I also want to pass this knowledge onto all my children so that they can utilize these same tools for when they have boys.
To enter to win, simply “like” this post or any of my social media posts and I will draw a name on June 4, 2016. Good luck.
Here is another great book, Mother & Son: The Respect Effort, from a great author, Dr. Emerson Eggrichs up for review! Respect goes a long way in our world. A mother who shows respect to her son, no matter his age, has set him up for a fulfilling lifetime experience. Since males view love and respect interchangeably, showing him respect is as vital as showing him love.
About the Book:
A new book from W Publishing Group/HarperCollins asks you to consider the all–important mother/son relationship in a new way: respect, as in the mother should respect the son.
Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, author of Love and Respect – a landmark book that transformed millions of marital relationships – is launching his latest book, Mother & Son: The Respect Effect.
In Mother & Son, Dr. Eggerichs proposes that while showing love is important to a son, showing him respect is key to his heart, and what will transform the mother/son relationship. Of course, to a lot of people, that will sound backwards – shouldn’t it start with the son respecting the mother??
Since the importance of the mother/son relationship crosses all age/race/religion barriers, this is a topic applicable to all – regardless if they agree or disagree with Dr. Eggerichs’ method.
