Being A “Mama’s Boy” May Be Good For You

Being a “mama’s boy”, isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  Matter of fact, all of the extra attention lavished may be good for you later in life.  According to a recent study,  Boys who have a close relationship with their mothers experience better mental health and have less stress than those who are not close to their moms.
