Having raised four boys and now trying to successfully swim through the unchartered waters of raising a teenage daughter, I was overjoyed when asked to review this new book by two obstetrician/gynecologists, Dr. JOE S. McILHANEY and DR. FREDA BUSH.
New Research on What America’s
Sexual Culture Does to Young
In this book you will find startling statistics balanced with empowering strategies for raising your daughter to become the independent and pure young woman you desire her to be.
Truthfully, I believe ministers, teachers, grandparents, counselors, and doctors should read this book as well. The insights into “why” kids are doing what they are doing and “how” we can help them change these behaviors are beneficial to anyone who encounters teenage girls in a role of influence. There’s even a chapter written specifically to girls from the authors.
We live in an era when “anything goes” and kids are being influenced by their peers to believe that they have the “right” to do anything they want.
As a teacher, I see a lot of students every day who are amazing young adults. I also see a lot of students who are lonely, insecure, and starving for good parental guidance.
Sometimes the task at hand seems overwhelming. This book uncovers the truth about this particular generation’s view of sexual relationships using statistics and stories the authors have gathered from research as well as many years of seeing women in their offices.
Teenage girls need the covering of healthy adult relationships in order to become the strong, healthy, independent women we long for them to be.
In this book you will find facts, resources, and techniques for becoming a parent or other adult-of-influence who can triumphantly meet the needs of a generation of teenage girls who desperately long for help, support, direction, and love.
