Reviews - What do customers think about Raising Girls?

an ok christian book for parenting girls  Mar 9, 2010
A book by Melissa Trevathan and Sissy Goff, this book is the one this site recommended to me as a complimentary book to "Wild Things: the Art of Nurturing Boys".
When I started reading this book, I was surprised and glad to see what a Christian focus it took - there was no trying to be sly about Christianity in this book. But, I was dismayed when I read that book authors were older women who were counselors and yet had never been married and never had children. I wondered how I could take their advice seriously, when I would be able to write off everything they said with the old, "Well, they've never lived this out. and they don't know what it's really like outside of the clinical environment." However, I came to repent of that attitude as I realised that they actually had an objective voice (or voices) that I did respect. Moms can tend to view, or skew things in a way that is biased by their own experiences; but these women didn't have that at all.
That being said, I think overall it was a helpful book - but a lot lighter fare than "Wild Things: the Art of Nurturing Boys". Although the authors spoke more about being a Christian parent; they also tended to tell a lot of stories and spend time on what I might call "fluff".
It does go into all the relationships in a girls life: her and her mother, her and her father, her and her siblings, her and her grandparents, etc.. And I think the descriptions of the different developmental stages were pretty accurate. So, the book does get my recommendation - just be aware that there is some "fluff" and that the authors are not parents.
Okay book for parents of girls  Sep 12, 2008
This book has nice insights on raising girls. I would have liked to have a little more discussion on the ages and stages, though. The chapters are a little short and I found myself wanting a little more...
Great Book - full of wisdom and practical advice too!  Feb 23, 2008
I am loving this book on raising girls -the authors speak with love and wisdom and experience! I appreciate that they are coming from a different perspective than just that of parents, but as counselors, who really know what girls today are going through.
Raising Girls a treasure!  Nov 19, 2007
Sissy Goff and Melissa Trevathan have crafted such a wonderful book with priceless insight and wisdom. If you have a daughter, niece or special little girl in your life Raising Girls is a must to equip you with knowledge and skills to raise a great girl in today's world!
Susan Johnston, co-author of Princess Bubble
Great advice from Christian point of view  Sep 26, 2007
This is a very thoughtful look at the problems and joys of raising girls. The authors are clearly very knowledgable and committed to helping girls to grow up to be who they were meant to be, secure in God's love and their place in the great scheme of things! I love the way they use case histories & stories to teach. As a mother of 3 girls, I found this book very straightforward in dealing with the issues that young girls and adolescents face, but also helpful and encouraging.
