Discusses the benefits of building strong identities in girls
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
The well-documented drop in confidence, happiness, and sense of worth as young girls move toward adolescence is discouraging and unacceptable. As this interactive book from the authors of the Choices series shows, there are many ways to bolster girls whether starting at birth or considerably later on. Checklists, quizzes, and questions encourage parents to examine their own attitudes, define what it means to be male and female, and learn nitty-gritty strategies to help their daughters. Psychologists, researchers, and regular folks are abundantly quoted in this earnest, often enlightening book.From Publishers Weekly:
Do you want to help your daughter to grow up into a confident, capable young woman? Here is the book for it, offering just the right information, support and good company needed for building self-esteem in girls from infancy through young adulthood. Solidly grounded in the latest research, the thoughtfully written, well designed, workbook-style text invites active participation from mothers and daughters. Numerous how-tos and exercises (involving discussion, fantasy, writing, critiquing, role-playing and more) build trust and intimacy while nurturing the self-knowledge, values, strengths and skills a girl (and her mother) need for developing a "hardy personality." Though sections for fathers are included, mothers, as the title suggests, receive far more attention, and a powerful message, too: if they truly want things to be different for their daughters, they themselves may need to develop some new behaviors and attitudes.
