Raising Girls - Steve Biddulph
Part Three contains only two chapters, one for the relationship between a daughter and her mother and a daughter and her father.
When I read books aimed at raising girls and young women, I often find they are filled with stereotypes, but this one does not. I felt strongly that Biddulph addresses specific challenges girls face without falling into this trap. This book is filled with fantastic information that will help parents address current and future dilemmas. Biddulph puts emphasis on supporting girls and young women in a way that allows them to make good decisions and solutions for themselves. Although I've seen this same information in many books, I think the way it's presented is what makes this one my favorite.
