Introduction

Life itself is the proper binge.
-Julia Child

Becky and her husband Greg were walking through the mall one day, heading for a movie, when a girl walked toward them wearing a T-shirt that said, "Put your big girl panties on and deal with it!"
Greg laughed. "Somebody ought to write a book with that title."
Becky answered, "And I know just the person who could do it, my old buddy back in Dallas."
The movie they went to see featured Barbra Streisand as a flamboyant red-headed sex therapist named Roz. She was a hoot. As they walked out, Becky looked up at Greg and said sweetly, "Did I happen to mention that my buddy back in Dallas is a flamboyant red-headed sex therapist named Roz?"
They phoned me with the idea, came down from Colorado to talk about it, and the next thing I knew, I was writing this book.
Big Girl Panties is a story salad. As books will do, it took on a life of its own, informing me as I wrote. I'd started with the attitude of "Big Girl Panties are mature and capable, Little Girl Britches are childish and ineffective." Before long, though, I rediscovered an enormous truth: they are both wonderful and amazing, when worn at the right times.

I don't know a woman from 19 to 90 who would't learn something from this book . . . and have a good time doing it. Understanding when you need to be your grown up self and when it's okay to let your little kid loose are essential life skills. Roz Van Meter helps you to learn them with some revealing anecdotes and a lot of laughs along the way. After reading it, I ordered a copy for my brother, who has 25 and 38 year old daughters. Some good-natured insight seemed to be in order, and I feel sure that he's going to be intrigued by anything having to do with panties.

Our slightly outrageous, always charming, often hilarious, and always right- on Roz has done it again. "Big Girl Panties" is a delightful read, filled with humor, good advice, and her usual "down-home Texas good sense for all us gals, no matter age. Her relating of Old Pal's feelings on "spoiling" grandchildren has been quoted to a beloved grandson who thought he was spoiled - not so - only "indulged" as Old Pal did his granddaughters. Thanks, Roz, for your insight and your ability to pass it on. Martha Goodman Laster, Richardsn TX

I read "Put Your Big Girl Panties On and Deal With It" with a smile on my face, a highlighter in my hand and a notebook for recording "ah-ha" moments. The book is helpful for those of us who are becoming strong, self-reliant women, living life fully and having a voice in our own life.

I'd strongly recommend this book for women of all ages, AND it would be an especially great gift for a graduating senior who is on the path to becoming her best newly-defined self!

Selsom, if ever, have I read a book that was so delightful and, at the same time, enormously helpful. Do not be put off by the title. This one is first rate!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Roz has managed to put together in a fun book the latest research from individual psychology, relationship theory, marital, sexual, and love studies, as well as the neuroscience on the aforementioned. About half way through the book, you realize you're getting this research cloaked in an easy to read and easy to follow plan. A summary of what you need to do to become an adult. I must admit that, while I could feel parts of myself knowing that she was speaking the truth, I could also feel other parts of myself fighting back, not wanting to put my Big Girls Panties on! There's no getting around the simple truth of what she says. The hard part may be giving up those panties and donning the britches! It's a great book for people who don't want to read the research but want the bottom line of what it says and how to use it to your advantage. Have fun! Wendy Kase, JD, MSMFT

I have just finished my third reading of Roz Van Meter's delightful, hilarious, yet amazingly helpful book. Each time through I've found new humor, nuance, and ideas to put into immediate and practical use in my life. A painless dose of grown-up girl medicine, the clever concept truly has some depth!

Her phrases "Courage through Glitz" and "Remember, honey, `no thanks' is a complete sentence" are becoming part of my personal credo!

"Big Girl Panties" is my gift of choice for girlfriends this year. So far, everyone has been a very happy recipient. I highly recommend this little gem.

I'm a guy, and I can truthfully say that this book is so full of great ideas and is so entertaining that it deserves a very large audience of women AND men. Beautifully written, it's is wise and very, very witty. I can't imagine that anyone who buys it won't feel that they've discovered a goldmine of strategies for improving their life, presented in a fun and accessible way. Five stars, and two thumbs WAY up.
