Mother and son share very unique relationship and special bond. Right from the birth, mother is the woman figure, which a son has been in constant touch. When he is baby, a son first sees his mother’s face; first voice he hears is of his mother. This is the same relationship a mother shares with her daughter. But as the son grows, he becomes a different male personality which a mother has to understand. A mother has to understand the male emotions when a boy starts developing at the growing age. Sometimes, a mother needs the help of her husband or other male member of the family to tackle the issues of a son’s emotional and physical growth.
