A clinical social worker who heads a firm called Raising Strong Daughters, Inc., Gadeberg provides a delightful, upbeat compendium of tips for parents who want to raise daughters who will be strong, safe, and self-confident--in short, well prepared for successful adult lives. She first explains how to teach girls to be "opinionated" --that is, to stand up for themselves and be heard--and sitting at the front of the class, answering questions, sending letters to the editor, and introducing topics in conversation are examples of the practical measures that she advises. In later chapters, she discusses positive mentors and role models for daughters, safety skills, conflict-resolution skills, how to develop independence, money-management skills, lifelong learning, and self-esteem. Gadeberg's action-oriented manual well complements the more theoretical Laskin and Laskin's Little Girl Book (1992). Kathryn CarpenterReview:
Adults who want girls to become strong, healthy individuals will find this packed with possibilities for growth and change. This is loaded with creative ideas for teaching girls confidence and strength: it tells how to instill values, how to overcome power plays and fears, and how parents may help daughters plan for success in careers as well as personal lives. -- Midwest Book Review
