Girls are as anxious and confused about their breasts as ever. That's why Marisa Weiss, M.D., an oncologist and breast health specialist, and her teenage daughter, Isabel, decided to create this book. Based on their research, you'll get answers to questions about when to get a first bra -- and what kind to choose, why breasts grow the way they do, and how to take care of your breasts into adulthood. It also includes a chapter focused on separating breast cancer fears from facts.
A groundbreaking book for both mothers and daughters, Taking Care of Your "Girls" is a practical guide to breast care and a girl-to-girl conversation about the feelings and emotions that come with the territory.
"Reassuring their readers that breasts come in all shapes and sizes, the mother-daughter duo deals with body image, teasing and bullying, surgery for breast reduction or enhancement and how to do a breast self-exam. Although they stress that for girls most lumps and pains are harmless and normal signs of growth, the message that early care of the breasts is vital rings clear....This empowering book will be an excellent impetus for honest conversations about breast health and development." -- Publishers Weekly
