Many girls today are caught up in a world that devalues them and prioritizes perceived needs and desires, in ways that will break their very hearts. Much of our culture undermines girls and damages their souls.
Elayne Bennett has worked tirelessly in urban, suburban, and rural environments to bring hope and guidance to the lives of girls. In Daughters in Danger she reveals:
- How American families can rescue daughters from the negative and destructive patterns of our culture
- Why progressive feminism is the wrong answer and an inadequate solution
- How mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, friends, schools, colleges and universities can be involved in saving our daughters
- The success of the Best Friends and Best Men program models
We allespecially familiesbear the responsibility for encouraging and supporting, training and directing, loving and cherishing daughters everywhere. This book is an inspiring call to take action for their sakes.

The future looks bleak.
Our fast paced, super sexualized culture is not a safe place for our daughters.
Despite what the media feeds us, the world is devastating, and in some cases destroying, our young women faster and in more ways than the average parent knows about.
Something has to change, and Elayne Bennett is leading the charge.
Bennet, founder of Best Friends Foundation, combs through the research, stats, and endless accounts of young women in danger, reviling how real and avoidable this issue is.
Our daughters don't have to remain in danger.
We can fix this, we can help "our girls thrive in today's culture" rather than be destroyed.
As a new father, this was a huge eye opener to the world that my daughter will grow up in.
It revealed the larger issues at play in our world and how they can be changed. Not that it will be easy, but essential if I want to see my daughter live and thrive in the world.
My only complaint would be the brevity of the chapter about how fathers and brothers can help girls in this dangerous climate. While the whole book does offer this kind of advice, I wish there was more advice specific to the men.
Our daughters are surely worth the fight.
Despite my one complaint, Elyane Bennett has written a phenomenal book that opens the eyes of parents and leaders across the Western world. This book belongs on every parents' book shelf as a guide to raising our daughters in the healthiest way possible.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

More and more, every year, it seems the girls who begin to feel culture pressure them to become sexual and social get younger and younger.
Author Elayne Bennett has made it her life's work to bring hope back into the lives of young women. Her new book "Daughters in Danger," Elayne offers her years of advice for helping America's children.
As you would expect, the author does a wonderful job addressing the pitfalls that young girls face today, sex, alcohol, abortion, physical abuse, drugs, peer pressure and body image to name a few. And then in the second half of the book offers some real-world solutions.
Bear in mind that while this book targets a real-world cultural issue, this book is written by a conservative Christian author. Know that going in, that this book is going to offer Christian advice, suggest Christian organizations and quote the Bible often. I don't say that to turn you off, just to prepare you - in reading other reviewers some seemed surprised to come across that element.
"Daughters in Danger" is easy to read, but written at an academic level. I have read parenting books before, and this book feels it was written more for Elayn'e M.E.D. peers and less for your average next door neighbors. Also there were times when the book felt too "political" for me. So while I think this is an important topic, I didn't go ga-ga for the book; and I am sort of ambivalent about recommending it.
Thank you to Thomas Nelson for this preview copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
