Meet Your Son’s Deepest Need for Respect

Play Arrow
Watch Intro Video

More times than I can recall, a wife has attended our Love and Respect Conference and connected the dots that applying respect to her son has also been deeply needed at home. There is even a Crazy Cycle of its own that spins between a mother and her son: without respect a son reacts without love, and without love a mother reacts without respect. I have heard many testimonies like the one below that show the life-changing results that come when a mother understands and begins applying respect to her son as well.

My husband and I met you at Soulfest in Gilford, New Hampshire, a few years ago. At the time, I was struggling with my teenage son. I just wanted to let you know that a five-minute conversation with you (you were on the way to your car) changed my life.

After we spoke, I went back home and began treating my son with respect, even when we greatly disagreed. It was life altering in our relationship.

Now six years later (my son, Andrew,is twenty-three), I have a healthy, loving, and wonderful relationship with him.

THANK YOU . . . from the bottom of my heart.

To hear more stories like Amy’s and to understand the principles behind how respect can affect the relationship between a mother and her son (of any age), read my book Mother & Son: The Respect Effect.
