Surprise! Your boy wants to please you, and he cares deeply about what you think. Those driving needs will stay with him throughout his lifetime. That gives you, Mom, a lot of influence over your son. You can set him up for success in life. In What a Difference a Mom Makes, the New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman reveals how you can make a positive imprint on your son- from the moment you first hold him in your arms until the moment he leaves for college. And the best news? It's never too late to start, no matter what age your son is now. Through Dr. Leman's expert advice, you'll understand who your son is on the inside, the truth behind sibling squabbles (and how to handle them), a secret for discipline that works every time, and how to navigate the critical teen years. You'll also discover how your parenting style impacts your relationship with your son and how you can respond in a healthy way to his growing interest in sex and relationships. Want to capture your boy's heart? Want a man you'll be proud to call your son? You can make a difference, because you are the one who matters most in your boy's world. Even if he won't admit it.

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.
