This was interesting and not really what I expected. I was hoping for a book on ways to help Ellie win the psychological war that I constantly fail.

There are some really good suggestions in here, though I had to skip several sections due to my general terror over the fact that my daughter will one day be a teenager.

Very basic. Good place to start dialogue.

This book is written by a female journalist and psychologist along with help from other therapists. It's a good look at what parents can do to help their daughters grow up healthy with a good sense of self. The way the book is divided up is helpful and it's an easy read. I think all parents of daughters could gain some helpful hints by reading this book.

As the mother of a girl, I really loved this book. Not only did it give me a touchstone for ways to help her develop a healthy self-image, it gave me insight into my own childhood and current feelings about my body. I HIGHLY recommend it to all women with daughters!
Sally

I skimmed this book in about an hour. Lots of common sense advise, with a few great ideas in between.
