Strong Mothers, Strong Sons: Raising the Next Generation of Men
By Ann F. Caron, Ed.D.
Mothers receive daily mixed messages on how to raise their boys into strong yet compassionate men - they are told not to be too indulgent, or their boys will become weak and aimless, yet are blamed for lacking control if trouble should occur.
In Strong Mothers, Strong Sons, Ann Caron draws upon research and personal interviews with mothers and boys from a variety of backgrounds to provide fresh insights into how mothers can foster communication and understanding between themselves and their sons.
She illuminates the stages of male development and shows how gender-related messages are communicated to young children. Caron shows mothers how to teach their sons respect for women, and offers guidance on supporting boys through the turmoil-filled adolescent years. Most important, she stresses that contrary to popular belief, strong sons value strong mothers.
Candidly discussing issues from masturbation and sexuality to fostering emotional maturity, this is essential reading for mothers of boys from infancy through adolescence who wish to raise them into secure and caring men.
