 Respect is a huge part of success. As a teacher, it is immediately apparent to me which students have been raised to respect authority and which ones haven't. It's not necessarily just about behavior, but it's also about attitude and work ethic when asked to do a task.
 But what's the best way to raise a son to be respectful? In Mother and Son: The Respect Effect, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs makes the claim that it begins with the mother respecting the son. This seems backwards, but it really isn't. How can a son learn to respect without being shown what that looks like?
I like the take in this book - to focus on that mother/son relationship is something not a lot of books do. It does have wisdom that work with father/daughter and mother/daughter and father/son relationships, but has a particular focus on the interaction between female parent and male child.
I have a chance to give away a copy of the book. To enter, leave a comment by June 7th with what you love best about your relationship with your son (or another young man in your life).
