First off, I would like to say KUDOS to all the moms who answered because their answers are AWESOME. Also, do you have a brother, a close uncle or trusted male friend, someone who is a positive and respectful to be a "role model"?. And I've heard some women say that "it takes a MAN to teach young boys to be a MAN" but I don't really agree because my mother raised my brother and I as a single mom and my brother turned out great and has the utmost respect for women. In fact, he still opens the door for women, buys flowers for his GF and has helped my SO and I reinforce to my son that women are to be respected and appreciated. And ,most importantly, children model what they see and if he sees the men in your life treating you with respect, he''ll follow suit. So, I say keep doing what you're doing because you're doing a great job by asking for advice and I'm sure your son will be OK. Hope this helps some.
