Every mom wants the best for her son. She wants him to succeed in life, to be a man of character, to find a good woman, to be a great dad. But sometimes boys are hard for moms to understand. Sometimes they're strange, annoying, and downright disgusting! Yet always they need a mother who is engaged and interested in them, because a mom is the most important person in a boy's life.

In What a Difference a Mom Makes, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman uses his wit and wisdom to show Mom how to lay the groundwork that will allow her son to grow into a good man. Armed with Dr. Leman's expert advice and insight, Mom will gain an understanding of her boy at every stage, from that very first diaper change to the moment he leaves for college. Dr. Leman shows how to discipline a boy, how to command respect, how to let him fight his own battles, how to understand his sexuality, and how to weather the changes in the mother-son relationship as he grows up. Most of all, Leman shows Mom how to lighten up and have some fun along the way with that boy who will always have her heart.

From the Inside Flap:

Mom:

Do you want the best for your son?
Do you hope he'll succeed in life?
Do you wish you understood your son better?
Are there times your son thinks so differently from you that you're not quite sure how to relate or respond?
Does his "maleness" sometimes disturb, annoy, or disgust you?
Do you long for him to have strong, healthy friendships and a good relationship with you when he leaves home?
Do you hope to have a great daughter-in-law someday who can also be a friend?
Do you hope your son will be a good daddy?

If these are your dreams and wishes for yourself and your son, What a Difference a Mom Makes is the book for you.

I guarantee it.|An internationally known psychologist and humorist, Dr. Kevin Leman has taught and entertained audiences worldwide with his wit and commonsense psychology. The New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of Have a New Kid by Friday, Have a New Husband by Friday, Have a New You by Friday, Sheet Music, and The Birth Order Book has made thousands of house calls for radio and television programs, including Fox & Friends, The View, Fox's The Morning Show, Today, Oprah, CBS's The Early Show, In the Market with Janet Parshall, Live with Regis Philbin, CNN's American Morning, and Focus on the Family.

From the Back Cover:

Boys will be boys--always.
And no one has a more powerful impact on them than you, Mom.

Surprise! Your boy wants to please you, and he cares deeply about what you think. Those driving needs will stay with him throughout his lifetime. That gives you, Mom, a lot of influence over your son. You can set him up for success in life.

In What a Difference a Mom Makes, the New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman reveals how you can make a positive imprint on your son--from the moment you first hold him in your arms until the moment he leaves for college. And the best news? It's never too late to start, no matter what age your son is now.

Through Dr. Leman's expert advice, you'll understand who your son is on the inside, the truth behind sibling squabbles (and how to handle them), a secret for discipline that works every time, and how to navigate the critical teen years. You'll also discover how your parenting style impacts your relationship with your son and how you can respond in a healthy way to his growing interest in sex and relationships.

Want to capture your boy's heart? Want a man you'll be proud to call your son? You can make a difference, because you are the one who matters most in your boy's world.

Even if he won't admit it.
