For mothers who refuse to give up on their sons–and those afraid they already have. It seems like just yesterday your son was a precious little boy who loved to give you kisses. Today, he often ignores your advice, brushes away hugs, and sees you as the enemy. Though you hate to admit it, he seems to have lost his spiritual and moral compass. And the more “lost” he becomes, the more lost you feel. Though “lost boys” can come from the best of homes, we as their mothers frequently feel embarrassed, judged, or rejected by our friends, family, or church communities.
You may not know where to turn for support in the face of your son’s drug use or depression, underage drinking or premarital sex, truancy or violence, criminal behavior or rejection of your values. But no matter what you’re going through, you can find reason to keep hoping. From spiritual solace to practical wisdom, Lost Boys and the Moms Who Love Them offers a broad range of welcome insights from women who understand your heartache as only mothers of troubled sons can.
