I define a Mummy´s boy as a person that hasn´t grown up, because he has never been given the tools to do so. He is not the protagonist of his life, because adults have confused love with overprotection.
Adults have made children’s life easy by solving everything. And as children do not know how to be autonomous and solve their problems, grown-ups do not trust in their capacities. Adults have made children believe that everything has to be fast, easy and entertaining, and devalued systematic work, maximum effort and discipline to achieve goals.
Today there aren’t only mummy’s boys or girls, but also daddy’s boys and girls, because fathers are functioning in the same way, as well as teachers, couples and bosses, as you will see throughout this book.
Our life is the result of decisions we have taken. Everything we are living today… is our choice. If we don´t want to carry on living in the same way, we should start by finding out how we have got to this point.”
