From the New York Times best-selling author of Love & Respect comes the definitive book for mothers and sons.
Love is important but it is respect that is the key to your son’s heart.
As Emerson Eggerichs transformed millions of marital relationships with a biblical understanding of love and respect, he now turns these principles to one of the most important relationships of all, a mother and her son.
The idea of moms respecting their sons may sound alien to some, but it seems to ignite curiosity across the board. It is easy to relate to the need for all of us to feel a mother’s love, but is that the same thing as respect? Even for young boys, the effect of respect is nothing short of astounding when applied properly.
Moms yearn to learn anything that better helps them with their sons. After all, they love their boys, but many find them more difficult to parent than their girls, especially from age four and up.
What makes this all the more urgent is that moms are coaching fathers to love their daughters, but no one has said boo to moms on specific ways to show respect to their sons, at least not in a way that is applicable and fully explained. All realize that little girls need daddy’s love, but who is strongly promoting the truth that little boys (and big ones) need Mom's respect? No wonder mothers feel left in the dark on this topic.
Mother & Son is also available in Spanish, Madre e hijo.

Children need love. Parents need respect.
It is as simple and complex as that!
When frustrated with an unresponsive child, a parent doesn’t declare, “You don’t love me.” Instead the parent asserts, “You are being disrespectful right now.” A parent needs to feel respected, especially during conflicts. When upset a child does not whine, “You don’t respect me.” Instead, a child pouts, “You don’t love me.” A child needs to feel loved, especially during disputes.
But here’s the rub: An unloved child (or teen) negatively reacts in a way that feels disrespectful to a parent. A disrespected parent negatively reacts in a way that feels unloving to the child. This dynamic gives birth to the FAMILY CRAZY CYCLE.
So how is one to break out of this cycle? Best-selling author Emerson Eggerichs has studied the family dynamic for more than 30 years, having his Ph.D. in Child and Family Ecology. As a senior pastor for nearly two decades, Eggerichs builds on a foundation of strong biblical principles, walking the reader through an entirely new way to approach the family dynamic. For instance, God reveals ways to defuse the craziness with our children from preschooler to teen, plus how to motivate them to obey and how to deal with them when they don’t. In the Bible, God has spoken specifically to parents on how to parent. This book is about that revelation.
A Revolutionary Solution to the #1 Marriage Problem
Why does communication between couples remain the number one marriage issue? “Because,” says Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, “most spouses don’t know that they speak two different languages. They are sending each other messages in ‘code,’ but they won’t crack that code until they see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to hear the language of respect.”
Dr. Eggerichs’ best-selling book, Love & Respect, launched a revolution in how couples relate to each other. In The Language of Love & Respect, he presents a practical, step-by-step approach for how husbands and wives can learn to speak each other’s distinctly different language—respect for him, love for her. The result is mutual understanding and a successful, happy marriage.

Los estudios psicológicos lo afirman, y la Biblia lo ha estado diciendo durante mucho tiempo. Descifrar el código de comunicación entre marido y mujer implica entender una cosa: que el respeto incondicional es tan poderoso para el como el amor incondicional lo es para ella. Es el secreto del matrimonio que cada pareja busca pero que muy pocas encuentran. Basado en Efesios 5.33 en un estudio biblico y psicológico profundo, el Dr. Eggerichs revela el poder del amor y el respeto incondicional y como la pareja puede beneficiarse de un matrimonio que Dios desea. Utilizando las innovadoras técnicas del Dr. Eggerichs, este cuaderno provee una excelente guía de estudio tanto para grupos o parejas que buscan entenderse y el propósito de Dios en sus vidas.
¡El secreto del éxito de la crianza de los hijos ha sido revelado!
Los estudios psicológicos afirman lo que la Biblia siempre ha dicho: los niños necesitan el amor que Dios nos dice que debemos darles (Tito 2.4). Y los padres desean el respeto que la Escritura dice claramente que es nuestro derecho (Éxodo 20.12).
Amor y respeto en la familia es una guía práctica para ayudar a romper el ciclo loco de los conflictos familiares y reemplazarlo con un ritmo energizante y saludable. Basado en lo que dice la Biblia a los padres acerca de la crianza, este libro se centra en el logro de una dinámica familiar saludable. En este libro el Dr. Eggerichs nos ofrece, con una transparencia sin precedentes, la aportación de su esposa y de sus tres hijos mayores de edad, quienes comparten la sabiduría adquirida en lo bueno, lo malo y lo feo de su vida familiar.
Todo está aquí en esta exploración reveladora de los principios bíblicos sobre la crianza de los hijos que pueden ayudar a que las familias funcionen como Dios manda.

How do we find God’s will for life's big decisions?
What if you had total freedom?
Emerson Eggerichs believes there is a clear answer to finding God’s will. The Bible itself reveals the clue--a secret hidden in plain sight.
Before launching his Love & Respect marriage ministry with wife Sarah, Emerson was a senior pastor for nearly 20 years in East Lansing Michigan. Before that, Emerson and a friend ran a free counseling center called “The Open Door” in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
As Emerson navigated his career he found both he and the people he was counseling were wrestling with big decisions and knowing if that decision was really what God wanted.
Immersing himself in God’s word for over 30 hours a week for 19 years, he discovered simple, clear truths that set him and many others free.
There is a starting point to discovering God’s Will for your next decision and for your entire life. Begin here to read stories of people in the same situations you face today. You’ll be able to discover the freedom you’ve been searching for, and then, like Emerson, you’ll help others find that freedom too.
Through the millions of products sold on Love & Respect, Emerson Eggerichs has transformed marriages around the world with his biblically based approach to understanding the love that she most desires and the respect that he desperately needs. Now, in this long-awaited release, Emerson has created an experience for couples that is effective, flexible and life-changing.
To build this couples devotional, Eggerichs has taken the top concerns that surfaced in a survey of thousands of couples and has developed 52 devotionals around the three cycles that are at the heart of Love and Respect. On one occasion the couple will be talking about how to stop the Crazy Cycle or keep it at bay. The very next devotional will talk about a concept built upon the Rewarded Cycle, which stresses the ultimate purpose for marriage. And the next may have both people talking about ways to use the Energizing Cycle in their efforts to love and respect each other.
Some may ask, “Why 52 and not 365, like other couples devotionals I have seen?” The author’s research shows that married couples don’t want to deal with that much material, that often. Therefore, the specific devotionals, which can be done weekly or at any chosen pace, are specifically guided to what couples say they most need. And this is a husband-friendly devotional, having been written and designed in such a way that the husband can feel comfortable in the entire process.
With this wealth of new material and video devotionals available online to support the product, The Love & Respect Experience will be indispensable to anyone wishing to better their marital relationship.
