Talk about a birthday gift! Your son is a very precious gift. A miracle of life. You knew from those first moments you saw him you will make each of his days count.
You’ve seen it all. His first smile. Those early tears. You’ve watched him grow up. Difficult teen years. Now, once again, it’s his birthday. It’s a special day for your whole family. It doesn’t matter how old he is. Look for different ways to express your love and let him know how much you care.
Celebrating His Every Milestone
Infancy to boyhood
Baby boys have a huge, always-growing curiosity about their own little, but rapidly expanding, world. Their personality is hard-wired to be alert and emotionally interactive.
Testosterone, even in young boys, helps vitalize their natural aptitude for muscle-driven tasks. (1) They always are ready to engage in physical activities. So, you see your son enjoying rough-and-tumble play and you’re not surprised about his definition of fun.
Little boys’ birthdays should be festive and colorful. Superhero themes are popular. Birthday celebrations are a necessary part of childhood says Heather Ulrich, Ph.D., child and family psychologist. (2) A birthday party filled with balloons, fun decorations, and treats will delight your little one.
“It’s not the party or elaborate celebration that matters,” Dr. Ulrich explains, “It’s the focus on the individual child for that day and a focus on their new age and development.” (2)
Adolescence is just plain confusing for your son. He is tugged between two conflicting worlds. Not yet fully adult but not supposed to act like a kid. Reassure him of your love, support, and patience so he can become confident and at ease.
Your son will experience hormonal spikes. His voice is squawking as it morphs into a deeper tone. Muscles replace baby fat. Bones increase in size and strength. He develops facial and body hair. (1, 3) He has a growing interest in the opposite sex.
Celebrate his new milestone. Invite some new guests, friends, and family members. But, be careful about broadcasting his birthday on social media. A cautionary note: It’s best to ask him before posting a pic – particularly a baby photo.
Being an adult means he has reached his physical prime of life. Men are usually driven to succeed and accomplish their goals and dreams. Sons tend to suppress emotions now. (1) Make this birthday special too. A simple message straight from the heart will work best.
