What A Teenage Boy Needs From His Mom: A Blessing
A mother longs to support her children, but in adolescence, support for a boy can look a little different. During the teenage years, boys may need to pull away from their moms so they can discover a sense of self. This change is developmentally appropriate but is still not easy for a mother.
When she can honor the relational transition, she “holds space” for her son’s growth. Today, we share with you one mom’s reflection as she offers her son what every teenage boy needs from his mom: a blessing.
