Many mothers worry that if their childhood does not hold up as a wonderful example of a loving parental relationship, their relationship with their son(s) may be in jeopardy. The mother-son relationship is a dynamic one, in which both people become richer. Sons help mothers learn about males in a new way and appreciate a world that may seem foreign to them. Having sons helps women love and appreciate masculinity for all of the wonderful things it is. A mother’s role is fundamental in building a boy’s self-esteem. Mothers lend their sons their feelings of self worth. If mothers see themselves as important (but not too important), their sons may feel important and worthy of love.
Mothers can also be good role models of a healthy marriage as well as a healthy love relationship. Because mothers still do the majority of parenting in most households, boys learn more from their mothers about how to love than their fathers. Mothers can also serve as good role
models of how to treat a woman with respect. Mothers who let themselves be dominated or controlled by their husbands are more likely to do the same in their relationships with their sons. Mothers who set limits with their sons and act in a healthy self-interested way produce sons who are better friends and partners to women. In short, a mother’s nurturing bond with their sons helps shape the type of men they become.
