Review

Praise for Steve Biddulph: 'When you find a guru willing to change his mind when evidence and humanity prompt, you rejoice. For me, Steve Biddulph - one of the most popular [parenting gurus] in the world, with four million books sold - is the man.' Libby Purves, The Times 'Biddulph... has a built-in feel good factor. Parenting books too often make one fell inadequate, but Biddulph's left me refreshed and optimistic.' The Express 'Steve's advice is easy to follow - and more importantly, it works.' BBC Family Life Magazine Praise for Raising Boys: 'Packed full of pithy wisdom on what it is to move from boyhood to manhood and how to help your (not-so) little one on his way.' The Independent

It is tempting to beat a drum once the topic of child rearing arises: growing human beings may strike us as important.

On the other hand, training children to cope, to succeed, to climb the highest mountain, can be captivating.

To me it seems that Biddulph's priority in a very sound book would be the former. Me too.

The difference (between him and me) is that Biddulph really knows what he is talking about.

His girls will thrive and will do well as school and in life, without being the world's leading mathematicians at age 3.

They will have the chance of living better lives than their ancestors.

He's not a Tiger Pop. His girls are not extensions of his ego. Thank goodness.

This book is informative though there is nothing groundbreaking with regards to the information or strategies. Steve lost me the minute he suggested a party be thrown for girls when they start menstruating with grandmothers and aunties. I would encourage Steve to speak to every woman who recalls being 13 and get some feedback on this. Most 13 year olds would be mortified. Perhaps a private celebration between mother and daughter would be better.

I found this book to be most insightful and it gives a really good overall idea into the world of girls. I found it quite interesting to read alongside James Dobson's book 'Bringing up Girls'. Reading both together gave me a very comprehensive oversight for my particular needs.

Raising Girls
How to Help Your Daughter Grow Up Happy, Healthy, and Strong
Steve Biddulph
Published by:Ten Speed Press

I have always been a fan of Steve Biddulph’s very practical books for parents. This one is no different.
The book examines the five stages of girlhood, from birth to preparing for adulthood. It goes on to discuss how to navigate through risk areas for girls. From bodies, weight and food, alcohol and drugs, bullying, appearance and dealing with the cyber networks.
The third part of the book is addressing for girls and their mums relate, and separately how girls and their fathers relate.
This book will give you the strategies to raise a happy, healthy, well-adjusted daughter.
Highly recommended for every parent.

Having previously read "Raising Boys" (I have one of each), I couldn't wait to read "Raising Girls!" It is full of ideas and suggestions, showing understanding of girls of all ages. A great read to help mums and dads understand their daughters better and how to form a caring, loving and open relationship.

I found this to be a useful and helpful book to navigate the complicated world of raising daughters. I also highly recommend Sleeping Beauties, Awakened Women. Dr. Jordan helps you become aware of the needs girls have in areas like emotions, friendship struggles, self-quieting, finding their passions, body image, and stress. He shows how parents can best support their daughters during this crucial stage of development. I recommend this book be a daily resource for every parent of a daughter!
