15 Things Mums Should Teach Their Sons


Mum’s of son’s know they have a special place in their heart and that they want them to become the best man they can be. My big lad is now 10 and although he’s  knowwhere near a man just yet he is growing up so fast. So as he’s growing up feel it’s important for us to teach and learn him how to be the best he can be from a young age. He seems to have grown up so much over the past 12 months and I can already see the wonderful young man he’s becoming.

 15 things I want my Son to learn as he grows up.

  1. The kitchen is not just for girls. Learn to cook.
  2. Courage to do what’s right
  3. Shower daily keep your nails tidy and use deodorant .
  4. Sexting is not cool and is a criminal offence.
  5. Real girls don’t look like a Victoria secrets model.
  6. Good manners are very important, always say please and thankyou
  7. Never break up with someone by phone.
  8. Never use violence to solve a problem.
  9. Trust your instinct good and bad
  10. Never feel pressured into doing something just because your  friends say it’s a good idea.
  11. Bad language shows no class
  12. Respect yourself and others
  13. Admit when your wrong apologise and mean it, say sorry
  14. Be confident not arrogant
  15. Hold open doors and give up a seat for someone who needs it

Obviously the list is endless but these 15 are some of the most important ones and will hopefully help him grow up into a wonderful young man that he is already becoming.

I hope you enjoyed reading.

Until next time

    Aw what a heart-felt post Caroline! I have a 9 months old baby boy and I totally agree with those 15 things. It is so important to teach them and show them all these things through our own example as well. Great post! xx

    I love this and think we should be teaching both our sons and daughters many of these things! –

    Lovely post Caroline, the best way to teach our children is to be a good example to them.

    My eldest is 9 and, like you, I can see him maturing (way too) quickly. These are great ideas. I’m also conscious about helping him respect other people’s boundaries and that when people don’t want to do something, we should honour their wishes. #thelist

    This is a great list! Yes, it’s so important to teach our sons how to become loving and responsible men. It can be so easy to try and do everything for them, but I agree getting them to help out in the kitchen and to have little responsibilities really helps. My son has lately got very excited about vacuuming, which of course I’m happy to encourage. He he! xx
