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.
Things have changed a lot in recent years, as well as along cultural lines. As a teacher, I was appalled to see students misbehaving to their teachers, cursing at the teachers, threatening, and even harming their teachers, and some parents will come to the school and defend their children. The world we live in today needs a book like this that will re-teach parenting to parents. If parents do their job on their children before sending them to school, the school system will be better off for it.
Alas! A lot of parents believe today that the school is responsible for training their children. They believe that educating their children is the same as training them. Maybe, America should have schools for parenting, and your book will be on top of the required text. Well done, and well spoken.
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!
