Publisher's Description

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. Sometimes they're strange, annoying, and downright disgusting! Yet always 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. Armed with Dr. Leman's expert advice and insight, Mom will gain an understanding of her boy at every stage, from that very first diaper change to the moment he leaves for college. Dr. Leman shows how to discipline a boy, how to command respect, how to let him fight his own battles, how to understand his sexuality, and how to weather the changes in the mother-son relationship as he grows up. Most of all, Leman shows Mom how to lighten up and have some fun along the way with that boy who will always have her heart.

From the Publisher

Think Father-Son Bonding Is the Only Thing that Matters? Think Again.

Dr. Kevin Leman Tells Why A Mom's Relationship with Her Son Matters Uniquely- And How to Make It Stronger At Every Age

For some moms, sons are confusing right from that first diaper change on. But by the time a mom makes it through the treasures a boy brings home in his pockets during grade school, the extra dirt her boy seems to find every time he goes outside, and the changes that puberty and driving privileges bring, she's sure of only one thing - she does not understand boys!

But if any of that tempts a mom to leave the big stuff to Dad, she's missing out on an amazing opportunity, says Dr. Kevin Leman. "Of all the people in the world, you, Mom, make the biggest difference in your son's world." Leman says "He'll never reveal it to you straight out, so I'll say it plainly. Your boy wants to please you. And that driving need will stay with him for a lifetime."

By recognizing the deepest desire of her son, a mom can speak into her son's life in ways that help him develop good relationships with other women, understand his own sexuality, fight his own battles, and command respect.

And along the way, it is possible, Leman believes, to learn some key coping skills for parenting your son and keeping a sense of humor along the way. True, moms may never understand why some things are funny to your son that are just disgusting to you, but you can still embrace the chance to leave an indelible imprint on your son's life with fun and grace.
