A practical handbook for parents of teenage girls shares 101 effective ideas for helping their daughters develop confidence, a positive body image, self-esteem, and good health habits. Original. 25,000 first printing.
With the goal of boosting girls' self-esteem and self-image, these two mothers Richardson is an author, journalist, and speaker, while Rehr is a professor of women's psychology have collaborated on this well-meaning collection of child-rearing tips. Their suggestions range in length from one to two pages and cover topics such as nutrition, positive role modeling, fostering emotional well-being, and physical fitness. While the tips themselves are useful, the book's format tends to fragment the authors' message and make them repeat their points. Although the authors' goals are admirable, and information is needed (the Eating Disorders Awareness Prevention web site estimates that on any given day, about 50 percent of American girls are dieting), this work will have limited appeal. It is directed to parents (primarily mothers), but it ranges so broadly from preschool-age to teenage girls that the core audience may be hard to identify. Recommended only for large collections.
