Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316090581, Hardcover)Contrary to popular wisdom, it is the girls with the highest self-esteem who are most vulnerable to boys who will take over their lives. SAVING BEAUTY FROM THE BEAST is desperately needed advice for parents anxious over their daughters' choice of boyfriends. According to the CDC, one in three girls between the ages of 10 and 18 has been physically assaulted by a boyfriend, but there are other kinds of abuse, including emotional battering, which can be even more pervasive and devastating.
Vicki Crompton brings the most powerful credentials imaginable to this subject: her own 15-year-old daughter, Jenny, was killed by her boyfriend. Crompton and Kessner provide advice on how to broach the subject of harassment and give parents a list of the danger signs for which to be on the alert. Throughout the book are the voices of girls and their parents, as well as the insights of psychologists and threat assessment professionals who discuss prevention strategies and the most effective ways to communicate with a daughter when the last thing she wants is her parents' advice.
