From Publishers Weekly
A developmental psychologist specializing in female adolescence here presents new approaches to the contemporary parenting of daughters. The relationship between mother and child is formed early in their life together; as Caron has concluded from the workshops that provide the basis of this book, the quality of that bonding affects a girl's full psychological and emotional development in ways quite different from a boy's. The voices of teenage girls and their mothers are heard in candid evaluations of their roles, in descriptions of the tensions that seem normal components of this developmental stage and in the hopeful note of the reconciliation process begun by many mothers and daughters at the end of adolescence. The guide provides straight-talking, readable and practical advice for mothers overseeing a difficult growth period. First serial to Good Housekeeping.
