Bringing Up Girls Book Review

Peer pressure. Eating disorders. Decisions about love, romance, and sex. Academic demands. Life goals and how to achieve them. These are just some of the challenges that girls face today—and the age at which they encounter them is getting younger and younger. As a parent, how are you guiding your daughter on her journey to womanhood? Are you equipping her to make wise choices? Whether she’s still playing with dolls or in the midst of the often-turbulent teen years, is she truly secure in her identity as your valued and loved daughter? In the New York Times bestseller Bringing Up Girls, parenting authority and trusted family counselor Dr. James Dobson will help you face the challenges of raising your daughters to become strong, healthy, and confident women who excel in life.

This was a powerful and eye-opening book!!  Do you have young girls at home?  If so, you must read this!    

Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it. ~ Proverbs 22:6

I was sucked into each chapter.

Chapter 2: Girls In Peril ~ "Today's little girls are being enticed to grow up too fast and are encountering challenges for which they are totally unprepared.

Chapter 5: Teaching Girls To Be Ladies ~ "The foundations of national Morality must be laid in private Families.  In vain are Schools, Academies and universities instituted if loose Principles and licentious habits are impressed upon Children in their earliest years.  The Mothers are the earliest and most important Instructors of youth."  President John Adams in 1778. 


Chapters 8 through 10 are all about the Daddies!!  They include such wonderful and touching stories...I was in tears!

I could go on and on.  This is a wonderful book that every family with a girl at home should own.
