I thought the authors were a bit naive, but it's not completely bad. Just not what I am looking for.

I had bought this book at a whim when I visited the very conservative Christian state of Mississippi. It was of course a joke, considering I am not Christian, nor do I have a teen daughter.

I gave this book two stars because it does pass for literature, I'll give it that. But among it's pages are places where it hits and misses. There is some sound advice, such as one of the authors telling a personal tale of where one of their kids did not take an abrupt move so well, and thus the family moved

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. It helps us to understand how to talk with them about difficult topics such as boys, sex, pornography, the Internet, self-harm and a range of other issues. The book also tackles the issue of why teenage girls often do not openly discuss their problems and concerns with their mothers/parents. The author Sus ...more

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.
Next time you want to know about "What your daughter isn't telling" you, ASK HER.
