Updated: Sep 27, 2022
Your boy has many needs like to be clothed, to be fed, to be loved, and to be protected.
However, your boy needs other things, which can be different for each parent.
The bond between a mother and son is a special one.
And there are certain things your growing boy needs that only you as his mother can provide.
In this article, I will be sharing things your boy needs from you.
This helps you as a new parent to raise your boy or you need affirmation and guidance to raise your boy now.
1. Show affection to your boy.
Your boy needs to be kissed, hugged and cuddled.
Have quality time with your boy. For example, play with him, laugh with him.
Your boy should learn how important love and affection are, so he is not afraid to show love to others.
2. Avoid harshly criticizing or over-indulging your boy.
3. Celebrate your boy’s uniqueness and strengths.
4. Be an example to your boy.
If you hope your boy to grow into a strong and compassionate man, it is important to lead by example.
Your boy might mimic what you do.
Do not quarrel with your husband in front of your boy.
Your boy may be affected at first and quarrel with others.
5. Discipline your boy.
Teach your boy right from wrong and how to handle.
Give your boy consequences when his behaviour is unacceptable and a discipline is a form of love.
6. Be patient and understanding for your boy.
Your boy is going to make mistakes. Be there for him.
Show your boy how to bounce back and don’t lose patience.
7. Comfort your boy.
Comfort your boy does not make him into a weak man.
When your boy needs to be comforted, comfort him.
8. Teach your boy responsibility.
Show your boy how to put up his laundry.
Teach your boy how to make meals and throw trash.
If not, your boy may grow up believing that cooking and cleaning are women’s work, rather than the responsibilities that tie into life.
I hope all these pointers will help you to meet the needs of your boy.
