Product Description

Review

"Tanith Carey swims against the tide in this brilliant "how to" book. She is not a lone voice - it's time we as parents stood up to the esteem-robbing barrage our daughters face. As a parent of three daughters I encourage all Mum's AND Dads to read this book." Carrie Grant, TV Presenter "Well-researched and sensitively written, this is both an important book - and a very useful tool for parents." Dr Linda Papadopoulos, author of Home Office Review on the Sexualization of Girls

I have just finished this book and can't help but be impressed by how the Author has got it so right!

As a Professional Relationship and Sex Education Facilitator and Trainer of Children, Teenagers, Parents and Professionals I see day by day the effects that the cocktail of the net, pornography and consumerism is having on our Children. The majority of Parents and Carers are blissfully unaware ~ many falsely priding themselves in that they know nothing of the net and computers! I love Tanith's analogy that we are not protecting our children now in the way that in Victorian times it was considered ok to send them down the mines and up chimneys.

I have delivered Education for Relationships and Sex since pre-net times, questions we were asked then were so different and yet ironically so many are the same. There is so much confusion out there for girls (and boys), this book helps Parents and Carers begin to understand how so different it is for today's teenagers and how important it is to have and keep those conversations going. In class those who are able to talk to their Parents and Carers about sex are momentarily teased but then obviously envied, the Author is right again when she says that children pick up your body language so perceptively. Where Parents have shown embarrassment or any negative responses even unknowingly this seems to be the red light and children won't risk asking again.

Many Parents feel completely unprepared to discuss many things of a sexual nature with their children, I like the ways this book gives background, facts, slots it into a familiar context and then offers practical tips. I have a recommended reading list for the Parents I work with, this is definitely going on the list! 10/10

PS Does anyone know of an equivalent one for boys?

This is much more than just a book about protecting girls from growing too fast. It's a must-read for any mum or dad looking to raise happy and confident daughters.

I loved the fact that Tanith Carey offers not only a detailed analysis of the problem and its underlying casuses but also a practical guide that every parent can use on a day-to-day basis. The book is packed with tips on how to guide girls through the formative 'tween' years covering subjects from school politics, to friendships and self-understanding. Tanith has done an amazing job of collecting vast amounts of information from parenting specialsits, psychologists and researchers to help understand the problem and its impact on our daughters.

Some of the facts are shocking, for example the reasoning of young girls to undergo plastic surgery procedures. But it just underlies the severity of the problem and the fact that we as parents can not afford to ignore it.

I found the book empowering especially in the part where it shows what every parent can do to stop marketers, media and companies from sending the wrong messages to our children. Padded bras for seven year olds? Pole dancing kits for kids? Thanks, but no thanks!

Early sexualization is a hotly debated topic and one that the Government is actively involved in. However, for me the main message of the book is that it's up to us parents, to look after our girls and help them deal with the pressures of growing up too fast. And this book show us how.

Tanith Carey takes a subject that effects all of us mums in the current society. Worries us all. girls seem to be wanting to wear make up sooner, wear really short skirts, short is fine but a skirt that is a top is not under 10!Tanith is writing the facts on the dramatic speed at which our children are growing up due to outside influences. They are exposed to sexy super stars, sexy musical videos, fashion in young teen mags. Its very very well written. i enjoyed reading this and it has really helped me on how to bring my girls up. I am a mother of 3 daughters and a son aged 12 7 6 and 3 and parenting does not come with a manual, this is about as close as it gets to a manual the helpful tips and hints that Tanith provides have given me a great set of skills and advice and ways to deal with the ever lasting questions that children ask. listening to the musical lyrics written today by artists the children ask me questions about what they mean i now have the manual to help me answer those awkard questions. This is a really good book and will help you with all those worries and ease your mind you are not alone we are all in this together media and TV celebrity status and size zero have moved our children to a platform that has lost innocence of running around in the street with a skipping rope playing knock down ginger. Definately buy this book it is fantastic xx

it is often obvious but she writes in such a clear and sensible way that it is excellent reading. I would make it a must for any mother with a daughter - even if only to reassure you that you are doing the right thing..........

This book really is excellent and I'd recommend it to any parent of girls. The style is easy to read and its actually full of practical advice rather than lots of philosophy with no substance to back it up. I am planning to buy this for friends who have daughters too. Highly recommended.
