In this post you’ll find the best quotes for mothers of teenage sons.
Being the mom of a teen boy is both the most fulfilling and difficult thing in the world. They can love us so fiercely and yet they also can treat us like we don’t exist. They are often quiet and private and leave us wondering what is going on in that head of theirs, but sometimes we truly are glad we have no clue.
We are often surprised by their shadows looming large over our own and can’t believe that now our hands fit inside theirs. We always expect to be greeted by the sweet voice our little guy and instead we’re startled by the manly tone that bellows forth.
It’s a bitter-sweet time as we say goodbye to days when we were the center of their universe and instead watch in awe as these teens sons of ours prepare to go out into the world on their own. Oh, how they make us proud and we know they are growing into fine young men, but that doesn’t make us miss our little boys any less.
If you are needing some encouragement or just a reminder of how much we mean to these teen boys or just how special they truly are, then you are sure to love these quotes about being a mama to teen boys.

To my son, never forget that I love you. Life is filled with hard times and good times. Learn from everything you can. Be the man I know you can be.
