The first relationship a son will ever have is with his mother. A well-bonded child does better emotionally, behaviorally, academically and demonstrates resistance to peer pressure.
A mother teaches emotional intelligence to her son, which ultimately ensures that he can not only understand his own feelings, but also can be compassionate to others. This opens a space to teach him the power of intimacy, which ultimately leads to happiness in all relationships.
A son in late adolescence needs emotional support from his mother. He needs that hug and kiss on his cheek, that restores him, no matter what’s going on in his life.
Behind every successful man, there is a controlling mother. By constant communication with him, she promotes his emotional intelligence. Because of this, he has better friendships and close relationships, which help him have a happy life.
Salute to all the mothers. And Happy Mother’s Day!
It is not easy for a loving parent to discipline a child, but it is obligatory. The greatest responsibility that God gives parents is the nurture and counselling of their children. Lack of discipline puts love of parents in question, because it shows a lack of concern for the development of their children’s character. Disciplining children turns aside long-range disaster. Without correction, children grow up with no clear understanding of right and wrong and with little direction to their lives.
Don’t be afraid to discipline your children. Such discipline is an expression of “love” instead of “hatred”. Why? Because parents who allow their children to misbehave at will, do not love them enough to teach them right and wrong. Thus, a lack of discipline is the opposite of love, which is obviously hatred. The godly parent should be heard saying, “I love you enough to teach you right from wrong, so I need to discipline you now.” Children actually appreciate “security” of discipline in that they want Mom and Dad to show them the boundaries they can live within. Remember, however, that your efforts cannot make your children wise; they can only encourage your children to seek God’s wisdom above all else!
