 From the Back:

Ever Feel Like Your Son Is From a Different Planet?

Don't worry, Mom. There's a good reason why your son perplexes you. He's the OPPOSITE sex! Boys really do think, communicate, and process the world differently than girls. But no matter your son's age, he needs you, and he needs you in not-so-apparent ways.
Drawing from her own experiences, as well as those from moms and sons from around the country, Cheri Fuller shares what makes boys and young men tick and how to become a more welcome influence at every stage in their lives. She answers all the top questions, including:

"How can I help my son (and me!) deal with his emotions in a healthy way?"
"School is such a struggle. How can I help him?"
"Our personalities are SO different. How can we get on the same page?"
"My son hardly says a thing. What can I do?"
"What are the best ways to instill good values?"
"How can I encourage a lasting faith in God?"

With page after page of use-it-today advice and encouraging stories, this book will help you steer your son toward becoming a caring, confident young man.

Includes Reflection Questions for Personal or Group Use

Great for understanding grandsons, too!

My Reflections:

This book is filled with tidbits of wisdom and truth about our sons and how to be their cheerleaders in life. It is not only encouraging but also practical in its application. I often find parenting books to have great ideas but when put into practise they become weak and tired very quickly.

Cheri Fuller draws on her own experiences as a mom of three children throughout the book, but also uses reliable and professional sources to back up her stories and thoughts. I experienced a few “a, ha!” moments throughout this book and am excited to challenge my parenting style because of it. 

I especially enjoyed chapter 8 “a mom who understands her son’s unique personality” This chapter was insightful and uplifting.

Although my son's temperament is nothing like the authors child, her illustrations gave me insight into the behaviours of other boys in our lives. 
I would recommend this book to moms who desire to become more intentional in how they raise their children.
