This book is a great resource for a "mom's life tool box." Although my son is 18 as I read this book, I still felt that the content gave me useful insight and an understanding of what boys need from their moms. Dr. Meekers has an engaging style of writing, it isn't at all over our heads nor is it "clinical" in its approach. While I am not overly enthusiastic about the narrator for the audible presentation, it is more than adequate.
I was especially helped by Dr. Meekers explanation of the importance that the affirmation of other men has in the lives of our boys. I believe that no singular man is going to provide everything for (even with a great dad) our boys. The more good men our boys have in their lives the better they will be.
Of course the section on letting go was especially relevant as I approach my son's graduation and the realities of young adulthood and all of the decisions and changes included in that transition.
"Strong mother's" should be on the required reading list for mom's of boys 11-13 years old, even if it is to determine that you already knew everything she said. If your son is at the end of senior high, it may still be helpful to see some of what makes our young man "tick" if it still eludes you.

I cannot explain with simple words how much this book moved me, made me think, changed me and change my relationship with my son.... I heard the audio book with my husband and changed not only me but him SO MUCH thanks Dr Meeker from the bottom of our hearts, I was working so hard to be a good mom and my life was spinning around my kids and without knowing I was hurting them! God used your book to show me so many things, I can breath better now, I never cried and was relieved at the same time Thank you! I am starting the book again now :)
