The book describes groups that are typically blamed for the problems that girls face and argues that it all begins and ends with the home environment. There is information about what mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers, schools, colleges, peer groups and the rest of the community can do to put a stop to the moral threat against this generation of girls faces. There are real-life examples as well as examples from today's media about the grown-up issues that even young girls have to deal with.
While there is a lot of bible-quoting and the like, I feel like there is excellent advice even for those who are not religious but still want better for their daughters. It's not just a Christian thing to want your daughter to be treated well, to respect her own body, to make good and informed decisions and to consider her future in even the small decisions that she makes on a daily basis.
As the mom of two daughters, I can definitely appreciate the advice in this book. And I agree that the buck starts and stops at home. After all, a girl's most important role model is her own mother.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for writing an honest review. I did not receive any other compensation.
This book reminded me of Unprotected by Grossman, and I was pleased to see that Bennett quotes her work extensively in Daughters in Danger.
Like Unprotected, Daughter In Danger is painstakingly researched and extremely thorough. And just a quick warning – it is not pretty at times. The real life stories and examples Bennett references are at times gory, gritty and stomach twisting. But it is a shock of reality that parents need to grasp in order to understand what kind of a world and what kind of problems our little ones are going to face.
I feel that too many “empower your daughter” books and articles tend to water down the real perils of young womanhood. This book does not do that. The first half of the book is painting a broad and vivid picture of the world our daughters will inherit. The second half of the book addressed what we can do to change our environment, truly arm our girls for future temptations and troubles, and be wiser guardians or our girls and our community.
There is precise and practical information for mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers, schools, colleges, peer groups and the rest of the community – all laid out individually, not lumped into generalities. All are practical steps to help put a stop to the moral threats this generation of girls face daily.
My ONLY complaint with this book is that while Bennett goes into painstakingly thorough details concerning sex, STDs, peer pressure, emotional abuse, physical abuse, drug use, body image, bullying, alcohol consumption and myriad other pitfalls for young women – she only mentions abortion briefly and in passing.Read more ›
Bennett has been an advocate for young women for many years. She writes from this experience and a passion to reveal a different set of priorities and aspirations to girls growing up in a dangerous culture of sex, drugs, bad-body-image expectations and more.
The first half of the book gives the reader a history of her involvement with young women and the culture that young women live in and face today. The second half of the book gives practical guidance to American families, schools, colleges, universities and churches. It also provides a model of the successful mentoring programs, Best Friends and Best Men.
This is not a delicate read. It will take a fair amount of time. If you are strapped for time and aren’t interested in the statistics and facts and history of how we got to where we are today in the treatment and molding of our daughters, skip to chapter 10 where the practical helps start.
This book was written, I believe, as a call to action on behalf of our young women. As a grandmother of seven granddaughters, I was extremely interested in what it had to say. I feel it could have been written more succinctly to reach a broader audience. Hopefully, something more handbook size can be written from it. For me, the book was just too much information in one volume. However, that’s not to say it wasn’t an impressively written book. It was. And because of its great depth, and amazing composition, I have a deeper appreciation and respect for Bennett’s work.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.Read more ›
