Growing A Girl: Seven Strategies for Raising a Strong, Spirited Daughter Rating:

"Is that your daughter? Isn't she pretty?" Like parents of girls everywhere, psychologist Barbara Mackoff often heard her young daughter Hannah dismissed with those words. So often that she started to reply: "And she's smart too." Hoping to counter the culture that she feared would stereotype her daughter and diminish her confidence, Dr. Mackoff spent three years searching for strategies to nurture Hannah's growing sense of self. The result is Growing a Girl.

Offering hundreds of specific suggestions and tools for fostering a daughter's independence and individuality, Growing a Girl encourages parents to act now by exploring seven practical paths. Based on clinical research and Dr. Mackoff's highly acclaimed Growing a Girl workshop, this extraordinary book offers parents the skills to shatter stereotypes that can stunt a daughter's growth while giving her the tools to nourish her strength, spirit, and capacity to care.
