Boys Will Be Men

I just finished reading an article from the Resurgence website which is about how mothers should treat their sons.  And it. is. fantastic!  I can always rate an article great when it encourages me, convicts me and inspires new ideas for me all in the short time it takes to read it.  This is specifically about how mothers need to show respect to their sons early on so these boys who will one day be men (sooner than you think, dear mom!) will recognize proper respect when shown to them and find a godly woman who knows how to give it.

Here's the beginning of the post:

It is never too early to start showing that you respect your sons. I know as a young mom I was so concerned about discipline—when, where, why and how to discipline. I wanted this bundle of boy contained into a well-behaved, manageable package. Is that offense punishable by swat? Is he disrespecting me? Why is he so loud and messy? While those are fine questions to ask, looking back, I would rather have spent more time asking myself if I was treating my boys with respect.
My sons thrive in our relationship when respect is generously given. If I want them to look for a wife who respects them one day, I better demonstrate what that looks like now.
