About

Mystified by the situations girls face today?
There's a good reason, Mom. Our girls are growing up in a completely different world than we did. But whether your daughter is very young or a teenager, you can equip yourself with the wisdom and practical help she needs for the pressures and decisions ahead.

With keen insight and warm encouragement, Cheri Fuller shares how you can become a more welcome influence at every stage in your daughter's life. Drawing from her own experiences and the expertise of others, Cheri answers all the top questions, including:

"How can I help my girl avoid the dangers of social media and navigate the digital world?"
"How can I counter society's unhealthy messages about body image and sexuality?
"How can I help my daughter (and me!) deal with her emotional ups and downs?"
"What are the best ways to instill good values?"
"How can I help her grow a firm faith in God?"

Filled with trustworthy suggestions, this book will help you steer your daughter toward becoming a healthy, confident young woman.

Includes Reflection Questions for Personal or Group Use
Great for understanding granddaughters, too!


My Reflections

A must read for any mother who wants to connect with her daughter in a meaningful and intentional manner. 

We all want to raise happy, healthy well adjusted young women. In today's environment we soon discover that the ideal is far from perfect. Times are changing more rapidly that even our tech savvy children can keep up with. Peer pressure and media are no longer a slow cooker our girls live in, but a pressure cooker. They are not able to be little girls for long, instead are thrust into a very adult world that they are poorly equipped to navigate.

Fuller's book What a Girl Needs from her Mom is an insightful and encouraging read. The topics are well thought out and informative. Some of the subjects covered are

- Mothering in a changing world,
-A mom who bonds and connects with her daughter,
-A mom who listens with her heart,
-A mom who is present and engaged,
-A mom who helps her daughter navigate the digital world,
-A mom who encourages and builds confidence,
-A mom who helps her daughter learn to manage emotions, and so on..

When I first read through these titles all that I felt was GUILT... I mean wow, I majorly fail at this parenting gig on an hourly basis! 

This book offers us, (ME) hope and encouragement along with Gods design for parenting our daughters. I especially loved the sections in the end of the chapter where it gave questions to discuss or journal about. This is a wonderful way to reflect and pray about your circumstances and effect real change in our relationships.

If you are looking to instill healthy values, grow a firm foundation and develop a strong relationship, then I would encourage you to read this book along with Fuller's other book titles What a son Need from his Mom my full review here

I received this book free of charge in return for my honest review from Graf-Martin Communications. Thank you Graf-Martin!
