a reminder…

“Every child, boys included, comes into this world wanting to love and be loved by his parents.  Young boys practice being lovers on their mothers.  They hug their mothers, bring them their excitement and the things they have found.  A teacher who works with elementary children self-publishing books they have written note that almost every child-including boys -names his mother on the dedication page, along with a simple but earnest declaration of his love.”

Raising Cain, Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys, by Dan Kindlon, Ph.D and Michael Thompson, Ph.D

  1. Sadly this is a subject I know nothing about, but I do that all of the boys in my life love their mothers above all and that both of my girls are hoping to be the mother of boys when they grow up.
