Are You Raising A Mama’s Boy

Posted on May 5 2014 - 9:00am by Mommy Posh


I have been reading many articles on how to raise a boy into a man, I even did a post on things you need to know when raising a boy, but never did it occur to me that I might be raising not ONE but TWO mama’s does this mean that I’ll be raising boys forever???

So when my mom exclaims that my kids are both spoiled or that I am raising mama’s boys, I could only shrug my shoulders and ponder why must she say that…hmm, could it be because of this…

That I get my almost 5 year old dressed, even though he is capable of doing it himself? I’m the mother. It’s my job to help.

Because I tell my boys that no other woman would ever love them the way I do!

Maybe because I still wipe my almost 5 year old’s behind when he poops.

So whats the big deal with my 15 month old cries in hysterics when I leave him with daddy?

tyler crying

And what if my almost 5 year old still sleeps in the same bed with with his daddy and I?

Who needs a stroller?  My 15 month old has me to carry him everywhere.

So I ask you, mothers of sons, have you felt pushed, by family members, or just a general sense of what “ought” to be done, to have your boys “man up”? Then I say to that…who is anyone to tell you how to raise you boys differently, knowing that my boys love me unconditionally and they tell me how beautiful I am makes me know that I would not have it another way.


Do you still say Mama’s Boys? Puleaze!

    At the end of the day, it’s how you care for them and treasure them that matters =)
