After I had my son, we got the book Bringing Up Boys, and I can't tell you how much help that book was. After my girls I remember asking God in passing why we didn't have one for girls. NOW WE DO!
This book started off with how the media, fashion, and toy industries are ruining the innocence of our daughters at such a young age. Just look at the dolls they have for girls these days. Half clothed Barbies and life size matching ones for our very own girls. Thanks, but I'll pass!
"Girls not only possess a compassionate and gentle spirit, but they can also be catty, rebellious, and downright brutal to their peers." Oh yes, I have experienced this with both of my girls. Not so much with their peers outside of our home, but very much so towards each other. They are 3 and 4 years old so they battle over everything some days. Then we have those days when they are best friends, giving hugs and kisses, and sharing with one another.
This book covers great topics such as girls and their mothers, fathers and daughters, their obsession with beauty, and many more.
Dr. James Dobson has done it again!
