STRONG MOTHERS, STRONG SONS Lessons Mothers Need to Raise Extraordinary Men

by | Read by Marguerite Gavin

Personal Growth • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

In this intelligent guide, a child psychiatrist explains what mothers can do to help their sons become confident, kind, and responsible adults. Marguerite Gavin’s firm voice and flawless understanding of these ideas give this production enormous appeal and validity. Her empathy for her audience is palpable and will encourage mothers to learn about their awesome power without provoking guilt or overwhelming them. An update of the author’s 2009 book on the same topic, this volume covers the practical ways mothers can impact a son’s development through sensitive listening, nuanced interventions, and the example of their own lives. It explains the limitations of what moms can do and outlines intuitive approaches to male challenges like self-expression, emotional literacy, empathy, work ethic, respect for women, healthy connections, competition, sex, and a well-developed spiritual life.
