Book Description

3 Feb 2011 Girls Schools Association

The ultimate guide to raising girls.

Have you ever wondered why…

• It's the end of the world if her best friend won't play with her?
• She moans about wearing school uniform, then goes out dressed exactly the same as all the other girls?
• She spends all day with her friends but still needs to talk to them all evening?

Written by head teachers and staff from some of the finest girls' schools in the country, Your Daughter is full of practical advice to help you negotiate the challenges of raising a daughter in the twenty-first century:

• why girls are different
• the importance of her friends
• family relationships
• self esteem
• eating disorders
• girls' bullying
• social networking and the internet
• influence of the media
• helping her succeed at school

You may be bringing up one, two or even three daughters, but the authors of this book have hundreds of thousands of girls passing through their care each year. Your Daughter helps you to understand what makes her tick, from her first day at school until she flies the nest.

The Times Education Supplement

‘As the largest non-formal, educational organisation for girls and young women in the UK we know a thing or two about girls and this book certainly reflects our insight into the huge range of influences and emotions affecting today’s girls. Your Daughter is a great resource for adults to understand the different and sometimes difficult paths that young women have to navigate as they grow up.’ Girlguiding UK

‘Your Daughter is comprehensive but easy to read, and a genuinely useful look at the wonderful, but complex reality of raising a daughter.’ Sarah Ebner, Editor, The Times School Gate

‘I have two daughters and bringing up girls today can sometimes be hard work. This book has great advice and is very reassuring.’ Alex Curran

‘This is exactly the sort of parenting book that offers useful and practical advice to anyone with daughters – and I’ve got three! The authors are experts in helping to raise girls and they pass
on loads of tips that I’m sure you will find useful whether your daughter is a toddler or a teenager.’ Jamie Oliver

4.0 out of 5 stars Great dip in & out advice book 11 Feb 2011
By Debs
This is a great little book for anyone with a daughter.

As you might expect, there's a lot about education and making educational choices, moving up from primary to senior school etc. I have a six year old and I found all the Q&As about school for 5-7 year olds really useful. It covers much more than just education though. There's every possible scenario from Dads to drugs, bullying to bereavement, Facebook to fashion. Even the advice I disagreed with was good because it got me thinking about the issues and hopefully that means I'm a little more prepared for some of these things when they come along as my six year old grows up.

A great book to dip in and out of. Because it deals with the entire age range, right up to 18, it's a book I can see myself referring to for quite a few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, sound advice. 23 Feb 2011
By ETmum
I bought this book after seeing the review on ITV's Daybreak and after looking at the website.

I have a six year old daughter and was interested on the advice about education. The fact that it was written by experienced teachers and head-teachers of girls was a big factor, as I have I have to admit I don't really like books that tell me how to raise my daughter.

It did offer very good advice about choosing a new school and covered all concerns about those first years at school, making friends etc. However, it also covered others areas and did actually offer sound and practical advice without being patronising.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound advice 14 Feb 2011
Sound advice for girls of all ages. Written in an approachable style - not one of those daunting and boring texts... Don't be put off by the fact that it's written by head teachers - the advice it gives is sensible regardless of where your child goes to school. Great tips on growing up - coping with different family situations & friendship wrangles, as well as educational tips eg helping with homework, revision etc. Great insights into parenting and the issues we face. An accessible read - highly recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing book 4 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately i found it quite irritating. One quote in the book was that 'girls like to talk about their problems so even if its 11pm at night and you're tired you should make time for her' - a ten year old still awake at 11pm - get serious! I thought the book was far too lacking in discipline and if i raised my daughter like they suggest i would have a real brat on my hands.

2.0 out of 5 stars No substance to the book 10 Mar 2011
Having read the other reviews before purchasing this book, I was very disappointed when I read it. I'm afraid I found the majority of it was stating the obvious and I didn't find anything I could take away from the book and use practically.
