Summary

In answer to the crisis in girls' mental health, the UK's best-selling parenting author, Steve Biddulph, brings a guide rich in content and interactive elements to help parents be prepared and self-aware in providing for their daughters.

In his groundbreaking new book, Steve Biddulph, million-copy best-selling author of Raising Girls, psychologist and parent educator, offers an interactive experience for parents to explore the relationship with their girls from the cradle to the teenager. It is a guided journey of exercises, conversations, reflections and self-rating questionnaires that builds the inner capacities in a parent, targeted at each stage of their daughters' growing up.

Every aspect - love and security in babyhood, mindfulness, setting boundaries, emotional well-being and emotional literacy, education and learning in primary and secondary school, friendship, puberty and adolescence, sexuality and sexualization, choosing partners and negotiating equality and respect; in fact everything a father or mother needs to think about to be prepared and self-aware in providing for their growing girl.

Complemented by real-life case studies throughout.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A must read for all parents with daughters

A must read for any parent in need of a guiding hand in parenthood. Within a chapter I had discovered new ways of parenting that have helped step up my relationship with my girls and how I can help them flourish in life and overcome the obstacles they will face. Steve’s ‘in a nutshells’ leave you with easy to remember rules of engagement. Please read!

A good overview of how to raise girls

I loved this book, it really struck a chord with me and reminded me of what girls really need to be strong, happy and healthy, it made me reflect on how I could be a better role model for my daughter and of how to approach difficult discussions. I felt this book has a positive empowering message, thoroughly recommend it to parents of girls and to those who work with young girls.

Thinking ahead

Though I was interested in toddler age group listening to the whole book have given me a lot more perspective than I was expecting. Thank you, just recommended to a colleague with teens.
