Reviews - What do customers think about What Dads Need to Know About Daughters/What Moms Need to Know About Sons?
Highly recommended. Jul 9, 2007
Written by co-pastors and proud parents John and Helen Burns, What Dads Need to Know about Daughters, What Moms Need to Know About Sons is a simple, sensible guide to raising children that pays especial attention to what children need to have and learn from their opposite-gender parent. John Burns carefully explains what mothers need to know about their sons, and Helen Burns gives the inside scoop on what fathers need to know about their daughters. Though written from a Christian perspective, What Dads Need to Know about Daughters, What Moms Need to Know About Sons is overall a solid and sensible parenting guide for readers of all backgrounds. "It's good for a dad to encourage his daughter to use her talents and develop her skills to the best of her ability. But many parents have a tendency to only notice what is lacking in their children's performances and point out those deficiencies. A dad, with his natural sense of competitiveness, can be especially critical of a daughter's performance in competition. In a little girl's mind, this criticism often translates into a sense of inadequacy and an unhealthy pressure to become 'what Daddy wants,' rather than the unique and special woman God intends her to be." Highly recommended.
Both Enlightening and Empowering Jun 1, 2007
Finally, a book that deals with the least-discussed issues in parenting!

The authors offer compassionate advice, sharing strategies that have worked within their own family. Reading the book is like sitting down to tea with close friends--safe, warm, and uplifting. It will bring hope to any parent, regardless of the age of his/her children.
