#51: Raising Strong Sons (with guest Dr. Emerson Eggerichs)

We all know the importance of fathers relating to their daughters, but very little is presented to mothers about how they should best relate to their sons. In this episode, Dr. Meg dives into helping mothers (and fathers) raise strong sons. Knowing that he is an expert in this area, Dr. Meg invited Dr. Emerson Eggerichs to speak on this topic and about his new book Mother & Son: The Respect Effect. Dr. Eggerichs is an internationally known speaker on the topic of male-female relationships based off his more than three decades of counseling as well as scientific and biblical research. Also in this episode, Dr. Meg gives you her points to ponder to begin using right away, and she answers a question from a dad about how to talk to his daughter about a transgender classmate. Do you have a question for Dr. Meg? If so, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and she could answer your question in an upcoming episode!
