An eye-opener for parents of girls!,
This review is from: The Wonder of Girls: Understanding the Hidden Nature of Our Daughters (Hardcover)
Did you really think that little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice? Well guess again. There is much that makes girls the way they are, and another factor that we need to pay attention to in order to help our daughters be the best they can be.
The book, "The Wonder of Girls," by Michael Gurian, describes many things about girls that would help us to understand why we act the way we do. There were many ideas in the book that were of no surprise to me -- being a girl I had some "insider" information :). But readers who really want to get an insight into the "nature" of girls, will find this book interesting. The author explains that there is another element we need to pay attention to in order to help our daughters exceed in life. Not just exceed in the business world, but exceed in their personal lives as well. The book goes on to explain female biology; how we attach emotionally; our approach to intimacy; stereotypes; and gives a lot of advice on how parents can learn the "nature" of their own daughters.
MyParenTime.com recommends "The Wonder of Girls," -- for one reason, the topic is interesting enough :). It also helps parents learn the best way to respond to their daughter's behaviors, and how to deal with the challenges that come along with each stage of their daughter's life. What parent wouldn't want help in this area? I'm certainly looking forward to using some of the information with my daughter as she grows :).
