Item Description...
Girls are born believing that they can do anything, but our media-driven culture of mixed messages and conflicting values can make growing up a confusing and risky business. And for parents, it is a daunting responsibility to raise confident, independent daughters while still keeping them safe. Jeanne and Don Elium address such complex challenges as:
- peer pressure and evolving social roles
- emotional effects of physical changes
- moodiness, eating disorders, and depression
- the consequences of early sexuality
- the gender gap between girls and boys
- new research on ADD and ADHD in girls
- daughters and single parenting
"Raising A Daughter" guides parents through each stage of a girl's development, from infant to toddler, through middle childhood, the teen years, and on into early adulthood. A bestseller since 1994, this newly revised classic offers a practical exploration of what it means to have a daughter, and a compassionate study of what it means to be a woman coming of age in today's world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not very helpful at all...  Jan 28, 2006
As the mother of three girls, I picked this up at the library with excitement. Sad to say, it was quite a disappointment.

I am not sure what generation this book is aimed at; maybe fifty years ago girls were taught to be quiet, helpless, docile, submissive, not terribly bright, and Stepford-wives-in-training, and perhaps THOSE mothers needed to be told that these are not good traits to encourage.

These days, however, the issues in OUR house have to do more with the sheer drama of having three very loquacious little ladies who feel it is their God-given duty to point out ALL areas in which they are displeased (and they are frequently displeased), and to keep rehashing things over and over and over again as they have startlingly long memories and amazing perseverence...not to mention their annoyance at having to be accountable for their actions and responsible for their own chores and personal care (since they are all quite sure that they were born Princesses of the Blood and should never have to do anything for themselves).

In short, I didn't find much in this book that offered any sort of useful tactics for dealing with MODERN, assertive, girls who have perhaps a little too much self-esteem, and who are being raised by modern moms who encourage messy play, sports, responsibility, and academic excellence. There were a few odds and ends that were interesting (such as the fact that women prefer face-to-face contact, whereas men prefer side-by-side discourse -- that must be why my husband and I communicate best on long car rides, and why my daughters have always felt it necessary to follow me around all day constantly pestering me until I stopped what I was doing, sat down on the floor, and stared adoringly at them for hours on end). And I totally agree with the author's stance on no TV and being very careful about what music children are allowed to hear.

But mostly it seemed to be an endless rant about the supposed repressiveness of our society towards women, and how much better things were back in the Paleolithic before all this pesky Judeo-Christian-Western-European-patriarchal stuff was around. I mean, did you know that PMS symptoms are a direct result of oursociety's lack of reverence for the menstrual cycle? And here I've been all these years thinking it was the bloating and backaches that made me feel cranky, when in fact I was being Denied My Womanhood. (I'm being sarcastic, for those of you slow on the uptake).

In a nutshell: if you are a normal woman raising normal kids, this is a waste of time. It might be of interest for a person time-traveling from the Fifties who needed to have her feminist consciousness raised; or perhaps for the the sort who likes to be told what a victim she is and that the reason you didn't do well in high school trigonometry is entirely Society's Fault.
Practical an eye-opening!  Apr 28, 2000
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it most enlightening. As a father of two young girls, ages 2 and 5, and already encountering some interesting parenting dilemnas, I was quite happy to discover that the techniques described in this book work quite well. I find that I am more patient and understanding of my daughters behavior. There is also a considerable amount of discussion about how our society tends to suppress the female psyche - I'm in agreement with this and feel that the discussions are necessary to make us more mindful of the unconscious pressures placed on our daughters. Definitely recommend adding this book to your parenting library.
A Re-Read!  Mar 3, 2000
I bought the book of the same title when my daughter was 1 and my stepdaughters were 13 and 16. I re-read it each year (for the last 4!) and come away with something useful for a new stage of growth the girls are in! Excellent reference with all of the basics we sometimes forget to heed!
Dad's eyes are more open and aware!  Feb 26, 1999
I was given this book as a gift after my daughter was born last summer. Previously, I had two boys which I could relate to since I am a male and was raised in a family of all boys! Wow, this book was very eye-opening for me. How easily we forget how we see the world and unconciously perform actions which may have an undesired outcome on our child's development. Although still an infant, this book helped me realize that I already treat my daughter differently than my older boys. I will definitely re-read the Elium's book in a year or so, and will likely revisit it time and again. I would not advise this to be the 'one' book on how to raise a daughter. I also don't necessarily agree with every point. Overall, though, this is a useful guide full of interesting and thought-provoking material.
Rambling discourse makes it difficult to find useful parts.  Jul 31, 1998
Contains some useful information; however, much of it is concealed in rambling discourse. Overtones of a "New Age" guide to raising a daughter.
