Mother to Son: Shared Wisdom from the Heart by Melissa Harrison, Harry H. Harrison, Jr.

Warm and fuzzy, anchored in values, and filled with simple words of wisdom, this beloved, bestselling book for parents speaks to the important business of raising sons, and distills their timeless lessons into one nugget of wisdom per page—some lighthearted, some serious, some practical, and some intangible, and all supported by a strong moral backbone.

Freshly updated, the book begins with the Five Keys of Parenting, a guide to navigating the extraordinary, even if sometimes exasperating, journey of parenthood. It’s filled with the importance of nurturing responsibility: Teach him that the world will judge him by his actions, not his intentions. Fun stuff: Have tea with him in the afternoons. Serve cookies. And when he’s ready to go: Hug him fiercely.

In the Beginning

If you wait until he cries to pick him up, you're teaching him to cry

He will need a nap every day for his first five years. So will you.

Leaving Home

Ask him to please never get a tattoo involving the word Mom

Remember, he'll be back. He's hungry.
