Hott Synopsis:
Everywhere we look we see teenage girls with no self-esteem, too many eating disorders, and poor choices in friends. But are we taking time to look below the surface – time to talk to them long enough to determine the cause?
I know, I know…. She knows she can come to you, right? That’s not the questions though, is it? It’s whether she will come to you.
This book helps us not only to learn what’s really going on but also how to step back take a hard look at ourselves and our relations
This book is a must for mothers of teenage girls. It helps mothers to understand that being a teenage girl in today's world is different to her world. That teen girls face problems we did not.

If you ever want to have any semblance of a good relationship with your "teen daughter", disregard this book. One of the most heteronormative, ageist, homophobic, sexist things I've read to date.

Good book with a lot of great insights. I guess I am already aware of a lot of the stuff in the book as I found I scanned through most of the book. So maybe that is good that I am up to date on what is going on with my daughter as a teen.

This book is great!! I liked its take on parenting not being just a friend! I learned a few things! I also felt good that I have been pretty informed because our kids do talk to us! This is a must read for all moms and stepmoms etc...
