Great Book - full of wisdom and practical advice too!

I am loving this book on raising girls -the authors speak with love and wisdom and experience! I appreciate that they are coming from a different perspective than just that of parents, but as counselors, who really know what girls today are going through.

Raising Girls a treasure!

Sissy Goff and Melissa Trevathan have crafted such a wonderful book with priceless insight and wisdom. If you have a daughter, niece or special little girl in your life Raising Girls is a must to equip you with knowledge and skills to raise a great girl in today's world! Susan Johnston, co-author of Princess Bubble

Great advice from Christian point of view

This is a very thoughtful look at the problems and joys of raising girls. The authors are clearly very knowledgable and committed to helping girls to grow up to be who they were meant to be, secure in God's love and their place in the great scheme of things! I love the way they use case histories & stories to teach. As a mother of 3 girls, I found this book very straightforward in dealing with the issues that young girls and adolescents face, but also helpful and encouraging.

Help and Hope for Moms with girls

As a mother of a girl, I have found great information, perspective, wisdom, and a healthy dose of hope in this warmly written book on raising a girl. I've read many parenting books in recent years and this one offers a few things many don't. First, it gives insight into how well documented stages of development play into a girl's spiritual development - how girls understand and receive God in each developmental stage. This has helped me as a Christian mom understand my daughter's relationship with God better and know how I can encourage her to grow in it. Secondly, Raising Girls is full of hope and perspective. As parents, we hear plenty about the dangers and pitfalls facing our girls and those are certainly real. These authors seem to be saying, while all that is out there, God is bigger. They point the reader to God and the hope He offers by giving us a new perspective on our day-in-day-out interactions with our daughters. They give a glimpse of how all we are and have and will experience with our girls can work together for a very hopeful future. This has helped me to panic less! Lastly, it is just fun to read. Reading Raising Girls is like visiting with a great friend who encourages and challenges and tells some really great stories too. It certainly fits the reader who "reads to know they are not alone" -especially when it comes to parenting a daughter of any age! In Raising Girls, you'll find a friend.
