Parents realize that it's a difficult job raising self-assured, independent daughters. Girls are born thinking that they can do anything, but growing up safe in a world filled with media can be confusing and sometimes risky. This book leads parents through the various stages of a girl's development, going from infant to toddler, through childhood and the teen years, and then into early adulthood. The authors address a variety of issues that include: peer pressure and developing social roles, emotional effects of physical changes, eating disorders, changing moods, depression, the consequences of early sexuality, the differences in gender between girls and boys, and single parenting.
