From the cradle to college, tell your daughters the truth about life before they believe the culture’s lies.
For mothers with girls newborn to eighteen, Five Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter is simply a must-have book. Youth culture commentator Vicki Courtney helps moms pinpoint and prepare the discussions that should be ongoing in their daughters' formative years.
To fully address the dynamic social and spiritual issues and influencers at hand, several chapters are written for each of the conversations, which are:
1. You are more than the sum of your parts
2. Don’t be in such a hurry to grow up
3. Sex is great and worth the wait
4. It’s OK to dream about marriage and motherhood
5. Girls gone wild are a dime a dozen—dare to be virtuous
The book is linked to online bonus features offering invaluable tips on having these conversations across the various stages of development: five and under, six to eleven, twelve and up.

IreneUnited States5 Stars Out Of 5For anyone who has a daughterJanuary 27, 2012IreneUnited StatesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Five Conversations You Must Have With Your Daughter is a very informative book. The author, Vicki Courtney, is honest about subjects we need to broach with our young girls. She also highlights areas we need to watch in our relationship with our daughters to keep them wanting to talk with us about what is happening in their lives. Her major sources of advice come from verses in the Bible. She stresses that we need to keep these Biblical principles as the guidelines for steering our daughters' in the right direction.
Some of the major topics in this book are weight, how dressing changes the way you are viewed, and sexual experiences now compared to fifty years ago. She shows how the media and even our conversations can change how a young girl views her body and chooses to act. With the media being the major culprit we need to scrutinize what our daughters are watching, reading and even listening to. The author stresses that even if we think our daughters might be old enough for online socializing we should limit it until they are age 18. This is just another form of influence you need to keep yourself abreast of.
The author is very open about her personal life and personal convictions. You may not and probably won't agree with all she has written. I thought she did a great job of presenting her viewpoint by using examples as well as researched statistics. If anything this book will open your eyes to what really goes on in a young girls life and the influences that affect her view of herself. Worth reading if you have a young girl or teenager and want to know how to approach certain subjects with her. Not all of the book will help you but it does give you a guideline to follow to at least start talking!
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

Margie Mason5 Stars Out Of 5March 25, 2010Margie MasonMoms and teen girls - read this book. Read it together if you can; if not, at least read it. Highlight the concepts you find extremely important and noteworthy. This book exposes many of the lies that bombard our girls and undermine godly parents on a daily basis. Arm yourselves against the media messages that Satan uses in an attempt to destroy our young ladies. Our girls need for us to be informed and active; they need our help to navigate the teen years; they need our encouragement. This book will help you get the conversation started.
