Every mom wants the best for her son. She wants him to succeed in life, to be a man of character, to find a good woman, to be a great dad. But sometimes boys are hard for moms to understand. Sometimes they're strange, annoying, and downright disgusting! Yet always they need a mother who is engaged and interested in them, because a mom is the most important person in a boy's life. In What a Difference a Mom Makes, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman uses his wit and wisdom to show Mom how to lay the groundwork that will allow her son to grow into a good man. Armed with Dr. Leman's expert advice and insight, Mom will gain an understanding of her boy at every stage, from that very first diaper change to the moment he leaves for college. Dr. Leman shows how to discipline a boy, how to command respect, how to let him fight his own battles, how to understand his sexuality, and how to weather the changes in the mother-son relationship as he grows up. Most of all, Leman shows Mom how to lighten up and have some fun along the way with that boy who will always have her heart.

I scoffed, winced and shook my head through 40 pages, and now it's time to put the book down. Here are a couple of notably gag-inducing quotes:

Page 28: "For the past several decades, society has been working hard to redefine men's roles and to emphasize the 'sensitive' man who is supposed to enjoy cuddling and talkfests, and basically act like a girlfriend would. But is that really who you want your son to be? A girlfriend? Or do you want him to be a real man..."

Page 30, in describing how a mother should make her son feel needed: "Why not give him some ways to help?... 'Fletcher, would you mind moving the couch for me? I'd love to vacuum under there tonight, but it's too heavy for me to move.'"

I can't believe this book has a copyright date of 2012. Good riddance.

Wonderful info! Wish I would have read it when it first came out and my oldest son was younger!

Unfortunately, my wife found the author to be quite condescending.
