Here, we are speaking of the beautiful relationship between a mother and her son and the incredible facts about it. This is not to say that other relationships like that between a mother and her daughter or a father and his children are any less valuable but that they are not covered in the following article.
A mother-son bond is special (Picture for representational purpose only. Max Pixel)
#1 Emotional intelligence

Women are emotionally more intelligent than men as they are usually the primary caretakers of children and they need to be alert to the emotional well being of toddlers who cannot yet speak. This means that they understand and react better to emotions than men (not always, obviously).

The son of an emotionally intelligent woman is bound to take cues from her and learn from her. He would observe the way she reacts and how patient she can really be. These observational learnings are imbibed by the child and he, in turn, develops his own emotional intelligence in the long run.
#2 Respectful and dignified

When a son bonds with his mother he can see how she acts, reacts and behaves in her daily life. He could see the problems she faces and the effort it takes for her to overcome those odds. He can see, through his mother’s experiences, what is it like to be a woman.

Needless to say, the son would develop a better understanding of the problems women face and develop empathy. He would learn to see the world from their point of view. This would lead to the son becoming a man who is not only respectful towards women but also others and leads a dignified life.
#3 Less prejudiced

There are plenty of stereotypes and prejudices in the male-dominated world. Some of these prejudices are so subtle that one would not even know that they practice these prejudices (example: sexist jokes taken in light spirit). Such prejudices soon become a part of one’s character.

A strong mom-son relationship means that the son is able to see these prejudices and also their effects as her mom faces the same. He could learn how she deals with them and how it’s not right. This would lead to the moral development of the son who would grow up less prejudiced and more alert to such ugly practices.
#4 Higher rate of success

Further, numerous studies have suggested that children inherit their intelligence from their mothers, which one can say is yet another great incentive to have for forging a stronger mother-son relationship.
#5 Better communication and expression

Women are better at expressing themselves when compared to men and they are extremely good at interpersonal communication as well. Combined with their emotional intelligence, they can be really great role models to inculcate good communication skills.

When the son shares a great bond with her mother, she helps in imparting those traits to him. The son, as a result of his interaction with his mother, learns well and gets better at self-expression which holds in him in good stead throughout his life.
#6 Low tendency of reckless behavior

Women show a lower inclination towards reckless behavior than men. They are more alert, aware, and cautious about trying things which may have an adverse effect on their health or endanger their lives. They are more practical in such situations and act in a more thoughtful way.

Needless to say, the son who learns from his mother understands the concept of practicing precaution and is not as rash in his actions as others. This means that he knows how to act responsibly and with maturity in a situation where others are acting rash.
#7 The qualities get passed on to the next generation

The most important fact which makes the mother-son relationship so important and beautiful is that the values which the son learns from his mother get passed on to the next generation through him.

Values like warmth, generosity, patience, empathy, compassion etc. are some of the most important and practical life lessons which a mother can impart to his son and these learnings go a long way in creating a man with a strong sense of morality and respect for everyone around him.
