Format: Paperback
I recently read "Bringing Up Girls: Practical Advice and Encouragement for Those Shaping the Next Generation of Women" by Dr. James Dobson. Dobson is the founder of Focus on the Family, has sole-authored over 25 books, and co-authored 5 others. I first heard of him upon the birth of my first child, and a friend was reading "Bringing Up Boys". Oh, how I wished there was a book called "Bringing Up Girls". I only had to wait 5 years.

"Bringing Up Girls" is broken down into 22 chapters that discuss all sorts of topics pertaining to girls: why girls are the way the are, the peril girls face, beauty, bullying, father-daughter realtionships, and more. Dobson has a pretty conservative stance in many areas, but what I liked about him was that he owned that stance and shrugged his shoulders in a way of saying "that's how I feel, you can take it or leave it".

Though much of what was written in "Bringing Up Girls" inspired me to want to sacrifice my time and my life to do the very best that I can to raise and support my daughter (and my sons), I found the book to have less practical advice than I had anticipated. Dobson is also so set on the importance of the father-daughter relationship (as he is the mother-son), that I often felt like this book should more be read by my husband.

I still definitely felt encouraged by this book and would recommend it to those raising girls.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The book is an easy read, and an essential resource to parents raising girls. Dr. Dobson presents a very good argument about the reasons fathers are so essential to a girls upbringing, and it really has made my husband and I examine our parenting of our daughter. Amazon's price couldn't be beat, and the book was delivered very quickly with no trouble.

In his much-anticipated book about Bringing Up Girls, Dr. Dobson takes a hard look at today's society and equips parents to raise their daughters in these troubled times. Using his own experience as a dad and a doctor, along with interviews with other parenting experts and daughters, as well as current research, Dr. Dobson shows parents how to raise their daughters to be strong, godly women. I thoroughly appreciated his honest advice and realistic look at our world. I heartily recommend Dr. Dobson's book for any parents with daughters of any age.

Format: Hardcover
When I found out that James Dobson was going to be releasing Bringing Up Girls, I immediately put it on my wish list for buying/reading. Then when I discovered I could review it through Tyndale Publishers Blog Network program I was thrilled! I immediately requested and was so glad I did.

Drawing from the phenomenal success of Bringing Up Boys, Dobson delves into the wonderful world of girls! What makes them tick, their greatest fears, why girls need their daddies, and so many other wonderful topics related to the raising of girls. I absolutely loved the fact that Dobson addressed the issue of girls and beauty, particularly how to help your daughter develop AND maintain a healthy body image, despite what society and the media want our girls to be.

He included a fair amount of information about the increase of bullying among girls and how to encourage a lifestyle of modesty (including the idea of a Purity Ball, which I love!).

There was also a ton of question and answers from real-life parents and I felt that all the responses were Biblically sound and very easy to follow. While there was not as much practical advice as I have read from Dobson in past works, my favorite part of the book was the emphasis on the male role, specifically the dad's, in the life of girls.

Many of the statistics that Dobson quotes throughout the book are very discouraging and paint a very sad picture of the world, but its reality. The future for girls (and boys!) is scary, but with the advice given by Dobson throughout this book, parents will be armed with the knowledge they need to raise wonderful, God-fearing girls!

While I do not always agree with everything that Dobson says with regards to discipline and parenting techniques, Bringing Up Girls was a thorough, well-written, and easy to read book that all parents of girls need to read!

I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up!

People I know are often afraid of the idea of having girls because of the emotional upheaval those teen years bring. I have to say that I feel more confident going forward after reading both the scientific reasoning for the emotions us girls face and the encouragement about raising strong daughters for the Lord. Dr Dobson is old-school or "old fashioned" in his thinking, but I find that refreshing. I have been able to take what I've read and determine what I believe is still applicable today and what is, perhaps, more of a personal preference of his. After all, Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever and I strongly believe that though we have more knowledge on parenting as years go by and research is done, we can not forget that the basics are still first and foremost the best from the Bible and God's guidance over our peers or even our child "specialists".
