My favorite quote here.. "Never worry that you’re “babying” your son by holding, carrying, and kissing him. No research has ever shown that a strong mother-son bond will “feminize” a boy, but studies do show that males who lack a strong maternal connection are more likely to be aggressive, destructive kids."
