Speaking from experience (eight years so far) of raising a daughter, I have to say that it is one of the most challenging yet rewarding things I've ever done. I have two older boys and honestly when they were younger, I pretty much hung the moon to them. What I said went, period. And to this day, they are still very respectful of me. It has been a whole new world raising a daughter, I guess in part because she is SO much like me, we even get sick at the same time; yet, she KNOWS that I am NOT her best friend - I will always be her mother first!
This book was a refreshing take on modern motherhood. There are so many more issues to deal with today in raising a daughter than even just 10 years ago. I love the passage she starts out tip #15 with (no spoilers, you're just going to have to read it, but it's beautiful).
I am relieved to hear that I am apparently on the right track to raising a confident, intelligent, and kind daughter because most of these things I am already doing. I pray that one day my consistency pays off, as it has in other aspects of my life.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is expecting or already has a daughter. And be sure to pass it on to your daughters before they become moms as well:)
This book gives sound advice to all MOMMIES who want to change the way they’d been treated [imagined they’d been treated] by their mothers so their daughters won’t feel the same way about them growing up. This book also helps the mothers of today better understand the reasons for their mother’s actions towards them.
I feel the title of this book is exclusionary.
The reason I’m saying this is quite simple as it tends to exclude ALL of the single fathers in the world who are attempting to raise one or more girls, without having the experience of being one themselves. And while this book deals with raising daughters many of the points the author has made I feel are also applicable towards their sons.
For the sound advice she has given her readers, I’m awarding Ms. Jules 5 STARS.
Nonnie has a light approach to the important topic of parenting. She uses a combination of wisdom, common sense and humor to inform and entertain her readers.
Her love for her daughters is reflected throughout her book and is a wonderful tool for honoring the young women they have become.
Nonnie doesn't preach to us. She gives examples. One of my favorites was the section about wise spending which she titles MILLION BUCKS WITH CLOTHES FROM THE SALE RACK.
In this section the author says she wanted her daughters to think of her as frugal and a saver so she taught them that you don't have to spend a million bucks to look like a million.
Young parents will benefit from Nonnie's wisdom and those with grown daughters will read it and remember that the work of raising (almost) perfect daughters is definitely worth the effort.
I agree with the author that it is extremely hard to be the parent of a teenage girl these days. Even more so than boys, girls are defined by their gender and perceived physical appeal from a very young age in western society. It absolutely breaks my heart, not just as a parent but also as a human being, to see young girls sexualized.
This sexualization starts at home. How do we fight it? By teaching our girls to respect themselves, respect others, set limits and achieve. The author sets out 100 tips to help parents do exactly that.
The guide is written in a clear, readable style. I particularly liked the tips on acceptance, both by the daughter and by the parent. My own parents, both classical musicians, always dismissed my music as “noise.” They wouldn’t listen to any of it, and so I could never talk with them about it. I resolved to listen to my daughter’s music, even if I didn’t like it, and it has kept the communication open and flowing between us on an area that’s central to her young life. I applaud Nonnie Jules for encouraging acceptance in both directions; I think this is an essential parenting skill.
I don’t really want to raise a perfect daughter, or even an almost perfect daughter. I want to raise a happy, healthy daughter. The 100 tips in this book get to the heart of parenting a happy, healthy daughter and I applaud Nonnie Jules for writing such a clear, common-sense guide!
