'Raising Girls' book

Thu Apr 11, 2013 8:45 am

I've just finished reading this book by Stephen Biddulph. I found it very good and thought provoking... although scary too with the current challenges girls face. A lot of the ideas are similar to my thoughts, which might be why I really liked it :lol:

I bought this book when Sophia was only a few months old, but I haven't read it yet! I keep meaning to. Did you feel it was really worth the read?

Mogle read it and then lend it to me! :lol:
I suppose I should get the raising boys one too now. I've heard they are great books but haven't read either yet.

I haven't read the book but I did hear the author being interviewed on the radio talking about the role dad's play in fostering a healthy self esteem in girls. It was really interesting so I'm sure I'd like the book too. I might see if they have it at my local library.

I saw him being interviewed on TV, which made me read the book. It was really interesting about the role of dads with girls, that they develop their self-esteem based on interactions with their dad/significant males. One-on-one time alone with dad is important.
