Steve Biddulph’s Raising Boys was a global phenomenon. The first book in a generation to look at boys’ specific needs – parents loved its clarity and warm insights into their sons’ inner world. But today, things have changed. There has been a sudden and universal deterioration in girls’ mental health, starting in primary school and devastating the teen years. Raising Girls is both a guidebook and a call-to-arms for parents. The five key stages of girlhood are laid out so that you know exactly what matters at which age, and how to build strength and connectedness into your daughter from infancy onwards. Raising Girls is both fierce and tender in its mission. It’s a book for parents who love their daughters deeply, whether they are newborns, teenagers, young women – or anywhere in between. At last, there is a clear map of girls’ minds that accepts no limitations, narrow roles or selling-out of your daughter’s potential or uniqueness. Raising Girls explores how to help your daughter feel secure, become an explorer, get along with others, find her soul, and become a woman. All the hazards are signposted – bullying, eating disorders, body image and depression, social media harms and helps – as are concrete and simple measures for both mums and dads to help raise a daughter to be strong, wise and able to stand up for herself and others. Parenthood is restored to an exciting journey, not one worry after another. Along with his fellow psychologists worldwide, Steve is angry at the exploitation and harm being done to girls today. With Raising Girls, he strives to spark a movement to end the trashing of girlhood and equip parents to deal with the modern world. Raising Girls is powerful, practical and positive, and parents will be strengthened by its message.

Revised and updated fourth edition of RAISING BOYS to coincide with the release of author's new parenting book, STEVE BIDDULPH'S RAISING GIRLS Few books have stayed in the news as much as Steve Biddulph's million-copy seller RAISING BOYS. It has changed how we parent sons. thousands of parents keep their boy at home a year longer before starting school and tens of thousands have taught their sons to cook (sparking a worldwide pasta shortage!). And an incredible result - this generation of dads is spending three times as much time with their children. Steve has updated RAISING BOYS dramatically throughout its life, and this new edition is no exception. this book features helpful messages about the three stages of boyhood which help parents plan their lives to keep boys safe and loving life. Steve tackles how to find the very best school (it's often NOt an expensive private school) and how to safeguard against internet pornography harming a boy's spirit or his ability to relate to girls as people. Steve includes stories of mothers who learned to love boyishness - with all its energy and intense emotions. these encourage mums and dads who find boys a bit overwhelming. the message is don't panic - boys are honest and simple. they just need you to have a sense of fun but also to be strong and clear. Learn to laugh - boys' testosterone makes them worry when you are tense. Set clear rules and they will be calmer too. Everyone wants to raise their sons to be caring, warm and strong. Steve Biddulph really has led this worldwide change, and this new edition continues to do so.
