What a Girl Needs from her Mom
There's a good reason, Mom. Our girls are growing up in a completely different world than we did. But whether your daughter is very young or a teenager, you can equip yourself with the wisdom and practical help she needs for the pressures and decisions ahead.
With keen insight and warm encouragement, Cheri Fuller shares how you can become a more welcome influence at every stage in your daughter's life. Drawing from her own experiences and the expertise of others, Cheri answers all the top questions, including:
"How can I help my girl avoid the dangers of social media and navigate the digital world?"
"How can I counter society's unhealthy messages about body image and sexuality?
"How can I help my daughter (and me!) deal with her emotional ups and downs?"
"What are the best ways to instill good values?"
"How can I help her grow a firm faith in God?"
Filled with trustworthy suggestions, this book will help you steer your daughter toward becoming a healthy, confident young woman."
My review: This was a very timely book for me since I have two young daughters. The author wrote in such a way that was as comfortable as having a conversation with her. She gave practical suggestions to help with the particular topic she was covering in each chapter. She also gave plenty of stories to support and illustrate what she was talking about. Cheri Fuller is a mom that has done her best to understand and encourage her own daughter, and has chosen to encourage other moms by writing this book. Each chapter covers a specific topic, and they are all very good. While a lot of what she has written is practical and common sense, there is still plenty of information that I know I never thought of. Every mom with girls would benefit from reading this book! I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
