Years ago, Dr. James Dobson wrote Bringing Up Boys, a book from Focus on the Family that I highly recommend for any mom or dad with a son. I've been the mama to 3 beautiful little girls for the last 7 years. All that time, Bringing Up Boys sat on our bookshelf and I often wished there were a version focusing on girls. When I found out there was one (it was just released earlier this year) I was totally excited! Dr. James Dobson is a very well-reknown, experienced psychologist with a Christian worldview. That being said, even those who aren't Christians have benefited from his wisdom. He's definitely been blessed with great insight into a great many things, especially family life. If you've read Bringing Up Boys (and if you haven't and have a son, you should!) then this book is just what you'd expect. It focuses on every important issue a parent of a young woman will come across. It's written by a very conservative man who obviously loves God and believes that it's our purpose as parents to shape our daughters into women who will love Him and will stand with Him in a world that's quickly changing.
This is must have book. Hope every mom and dad read this book. It is good not for parenting only, but mostly for girls' future life. Bringing up girls is similar to Bringing up boys just in couple of ways and mostly different from as boys are different from girls. Also there is updated information which you do not find in Bringing up Boys. I will reread it soon.
