5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Son

Have a Seat, Son. It’s Time for Us to Have THE Talk…

As a mother, I have truly been blessed with three sons. Each is very different. Each holds my heart and rules my soul. Two have gone through adolescence. It wasn’t turbulent. There were highs and lows, but it defined each of us and we tackled the challenges one step at a time. Li’l Man is my baby, he is five, and my final boy. Vicki Courtney’s book, 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Son is my new road map to the finale of raising my children.
5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Son

5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Son covers some tough topics, but Courtney pulls them off with personal experience, humor, scriptures and research. It’s not just a one-time read but a great resource as the topics are ones that are on-going in raising a boy to a man.

  • Don’t define manhood by the culture’s wimpy standards; it’s okay to be a man!
  • What you don’t learn to conquer may become your master
  • Not everyone’s doing it! (And other naked truths about sex you won’t hear in the locker room.)
  • Boyhood is only for a season. P.S. It’s time to grow up!
  • Godly men are in short supply—dare to become one!

I value that Courtney shares her own experiences raising two sons. A candid glimpse into another Mom’s world with research backing her up makes for an informative read. I can attest, from my own experience, that raising a child isn’t easy. It takes love, perseverance, trial and error and a whole lot of prayer to encourage and empower them into being the great man they have always been destined to become.

On page 43, Courtney discusses helicopter parenting. I accuse my husband of this behavior all the time, however, on the list, I discovered three of the “offenses” I owned. I was concerned, but Courtney assured me that it is natural to have these tendencies. It’s about finding balance. This is what I love about 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Son, it’s not a lecture. It’s a reassurance that, as parents, we’re going to get through this.

The tone and flow of this book made me feel like I was having lunch with Courtney as we discussed our sons and the lessons we’ve learned, the trials we’ve face, and the love with which we consume them.
