What sons learn from their mothers is invaluable to their development. The love of a healthy stable mother makes boys stronger emotionally and psychologically. Statistics have proven that boys with a strong mother influence do better in the world. They have more courage and a stronger self of self esteem and self confidence. Self respect and confidence are vital to every child's development.
Often the bond between mother and her young son can be so strong that it is hard for either one to let go. There has to be a balance in the relationship where healthy development is allowed. The Mother is required to know when to let go, to balance the dynamic between supporting and stepping back. Clinging too tightly at some point will create a power struggle if Mom does not have clarity around the emotional development best suited for her son. If Mom makes it all about her need to control, her need to be the most important person in his life, the need to keep him close, there will be a power struggle.
Up to the age of 11-12 your son will look to you for all his physical, emotionally and spiritual needs. Shockingly, this can seem to change over night. As he enters school and sports he will have an inner drive to be independent, to try to find his own way, his own rhythm. He will not look to you for everything anymore. If you are not ready for this change you may try to resist it. This is where the power struggle comes in. There will be a day when he will seem embarrassed to have you around, to let anyone know he has a good relationship with you. He may push you away or shut down around you. This can be alarming for a young mother and if you are not prepared you may try to stop him from trying to fly.
