Hear me out. This show is about a sheriff in Wyoming and his daily life. What sticks out about his character is how strong and oldschool his morals are. He's polite. He sticks up for the weak. His heart breaks at the sight of a woman or child in pain. I seriously can't think of a single TV show on currently that has a man like that. Why?
Because he's a relic. They even say that in the show. He doesn't even own a cell phone!
But I want my boys to be like that. I want them to stand up for what is good & honorable more than anything else. I want them to take a few licks sticking up for those who have no one. I want to raise men of integrity, strength, and respect.
Although it will be my husband that will teach them most of these things, there is something I am responsible for teaching him respect.
Yeah, this seems to be a lost art.
We love when daddies teach their little girls how a man should love them, but what about moms and sons? Aren't we called as wives to respect our husbands? Should we not show our sons what that looks like by showing THEM respect?
Even as I type this-I can feel the eye-rolls from all the feminist in the room. But it makes biblical sense, and Dr. Eggerichs does a great job in breaking this all down.
I've said for a while that it is so important to show our kids' love the way THEY need to be loved, but when it comes to little boys-I'm at a loss. I didn't grow up with brothers, so raising them has left me clueless. I also didn't have a Christian father for most of my life and neither did my husband. "Mother & Son" is a great resource-especially since it is coming from a man's perspective.
Just give it a chance and check it out!
