Item description for Why a Son Needs a Mom: 100 Reasons by Gregory E. Lang...
The relationship between mothers and sons is unique in many ways. Conceived and nurtured in love, frequently this relationship defines the man a son will become and serves as a reservoir from which he later may draw memories and affection that will guide him as a husband and father. From the warmth and security a boy experiences with his mother, he gains confidence and learns about loving and accepting others, listening and expressing his own ideas and feelings, and exploring the world in which he lives. The things he learns from his mother will highly influence the kind of relationships he will have someday with his own wife and children. Indeed, this rich relationship will define him in many ways throughout his life.
Why a Son Needs a Mom is one son's loving reflection on what his mother brought to his life as well as the aspirations she has been able to fulfill in part because of what he has brought to hers. "When I sat down to write," Greg Lang explains, "I wanted to express the essence of what I think the relationship I have shared with my mom has been all about." He began to ponder the things they did together and how important they were to his development as a boy. He thought of the wisdom he gained from her and how, as he has grown older, those moments have become so important to him. "The first time I read what I had written," he notes, "I saw a list of the things she had brought to my life. When I thought about it more, I realized that not only had she enriched my life, but that she, too, continues to draw strength from the reservoirs of love and respect that have grown between us over the years."
The result is a book that will both inspire mothers and remind sons of the importance their mothers have had in their lives, providing love and nurture and instilling in them the qualities that will serve them well as men.

AWESOME! May 4, 2007
I paged through this book quickly one day & thought of the many similiarites that I had with the relationship with my son. The thought of the book kept coming back to me. My son is at college out of state so I ordered the book and after making some personal notes on a few of the pages, I sent it to him for his 20th birthday. I received a phone call the day he received the package and in a very soft voice, choking back tears I heard "Mom, I got the book - I want to tell you how much it meant to me". I teared up at his response. It is a Wonderful Book! It makes you laugh. It makes you cry. I think it is a must for a son and/or mother to have. What a tribute to sons and mothers alike~
Excellent Book! Jan 9, 2007
Reading this book made me have a lump in my throat and have tears in my eyes. See how we shape the lives of our children.
why a son needs a mom Apr 11, 2006
As a mom of two boy's ages 4 and 7 I need to let you know how truly I enjoyed this books "reasons". Growing up haveing a wonderful mom I saved so many memories and things that I would pass on to a GIRL. Well as we all know we don't get what we always want out of life. When I came across this book i was surprised to see mom and son in the same sentence. I watch for commercials, books, sayings, even school activates that focus on a realashoinships between a mom and son....they are few and far between. I have grabbed on to my boys and try my best to be a great mom and friend. It was so nice to read this book i plan to keep it and share it with the boys some day. Thank you so much for writing about this and i hope to see more books on the same subject.I would gladly give this book a five. A mom in michigan (with 2 boys)
