There is just something so special about raising boys.

Their energy is endless, their humor is infectious, and their strength is mind-blowing. Boys are such a joy to raise, and a mother's bond with her son is like no other.

But raising a son isn't always easy and is filled with lots of challenges. There will be both highs and lows like a roller coaster, but the journey is so rewarding.

It's crucial to find the joys of raising your son to help him become a strong man.

Spend time cooking and eating together. Help nurse him back to good health when he is sick. Teach him how to be a gentleman. Enjoy your wild adventures together. Raise him to be a warrior with strong family values and a good work ethic.

Your son will make your days bright when they seem dark.

You will surely smile after reading these inspiring quotes if you are expecting a son or raising one.

6. "One of the greatest gifts you can give your teenage boy is the gift of letting him know you get it. You've been there." -Sebastian R. Jones

Be relatable when your son hits his adolescence. You know how hard being a teenager is. Let him know you are there if he wants to vent or talk about anything. Don't ever judge him either, or you risk him shutting down, which causes psychological damage.

7. "When you teach your son, you teach your son's son." -The Talmud
