Shoulder to Shoulder

Shoulder to Shoulder with the Little Guy in Your life

In his latest book, Mother and Son: The Respect Effect, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs shares with moms that respect is the real key to a son’s heart. He says,

Mother and Son Book

“For quality time, instead of spending this time talking face-to-face about feelings, do shoulder-to-shoulder activities with a son, or even just sit and watch him play with his brother.”

In light of the idea that males tend to enjoy quality time most in the quiet moments of doing an activity together, side by side, instead of pouring their hearts out over a nice meal, here are some starters for connecting with your boys…

  • bullding legos
  • making a favorite meal or dessert together
  • washing the car
  • going for a hike
  • play a video game
  • read side by side on the front porch
  • wash the dog
  • plant some flowers

Share your ideas with us for shoulder to shoulder time with the men in your life!
