A single mom asks, “How can a single mom teach sons the proper way to treat a girl since there isn’t a consistent example?” It’s tough being a single parent. You want your son to have a positive godly male example in their life. Here’s what I’d do. Train him. When you go somewhere, make him open the door and car door for you. Now, if he doesn’t, just stand there. A lot of dads do father-daughter dates. You can do the same thing with your son—step-by-step training on how to treat a woman, reinforcing this respect every day in the home. Have him lead family devotions. Remind him that just like practicing baseball or basketball, you’re training him to be a good husband and father.
