This is a helpful, not-preachy book about how to navigate the world today with a daughter in tow. This book is quite readable and I found myself enjoying the stories of the girls he featured in the book. I even found myself in the book, which was a surprise. This book helped us (my husband and me) to create reasonable guidelines for our daughter concerning all of the technology at her fingertips, as well as nurturing her soul and keeping her healthy. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a daughter. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0465015611, Hardcover)

Girls are cutting themselves with razors. Girls are convinced they’re fat, and starve themselves to prove it. Other girls are so anxious about grades they can’t sleep at night—at eleven years of age. What’s going on? In Girls on the Edge, Dr. Leonard Sax provides the answers. He shares stories of girls who look confident and strong on the outside, but are fragile within. He shows why a growing proportion of teen and tween girls are confused about their sexual identity, or are obsessed with grades or Facebook. Dr. Sax provides parents with tools to help girls become confident women, along with practical tips on helping your daughter choose a sport, nurturing her spirit through female centered activities, and more. Compelling and inspiring, Girls on the Edge points the way to a new future for today’s young women.
