Synopsis

Your Daughter by Girls' School 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.

Reviews

'Plenty of good, practical advice here...Your Daughter covers a lot of ground with insight and good sense...'
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.'
