I love Dr. Leman's humor throughout this book. I grew up without a mother and it has impacted my whole life. She died after the birth of my brother. I'm watching my daughter raise her twin boys (7). She's a single Christian mom now, as her husband left last year. She's reading her copy of the book along with me and we're both learning news things everyday. It's a great resource and I highly recommend it. It's so amazingly practical on so many levels. It's true mother's have a huge influence on their children and family life. Dr. Leman reinforces all the things that are worthwhile being a Christian mother.
What a difference a Mom really can make! After reading this book you will have a different opinion about how much influence a Mom can have on her son. I gave this book by Kevin Leman a 5/5 stars. I thought the book had some great advice and was very easy to understand. I liked how open the author was with his many personal examples. I especially liked how the writing helped the subject move from one subject to the next. The sections on discipline and understanding of how a males mind works were especially enlightening. This book is perfect for every mom with a son and I would recommend it as a perfect present. I even think it could be used as a study book for a Sunday School class. This is a must read book!
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
From the very beginning I was hooked. A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Leman for writing this book. I have a six year old son and 1 year old and have known that I wasn't doing something right with parenting my 6 year old son. As hard as I was trying to be my ways just weren't working. So for the last 1-2 years I have been seeking help like listening to moody radio and researching what books to read. Well as a busy mom I never had time for a book. But I had to get something. This book I bought in audible form. Thank you to all who made that possible. And I thank God for leading me to this one, it will change my relationship with my boys but most importantly their lives!
