Father To Son Poems

The relationship of a son towards both his parents is very complex. A son will likely feel a close bond with his mother, yet see his father as an adversary and competitor. When a son sees how his father interacts with his mother he will either attempt to model his father's behavior or reject his father's example of relationships with women. From the parents' point of view, having a son can be one of the greatest joys they will ever experience but also one of the greatest challenges. Balancing the need to offer freedom to your son while placing appropriate boundaries may be an area of contention.

    No amount of gold could ever compare to the gift of love that my son shares.
    I've been blind and I couldn't see that all the love I've wanted is right here in front of me.
    He gives me reason to get through another day.
    Maybe it's how he loves me in his special little way.
