La Batalla de Cada Mujer Joven (Every Young Woman's Battle)
Not for Every Girl :(
My husband and I have been teaching on marriage and family issues for years and have traveled and spoken as keynote speakers for marriage conferences. We have promoted Stephen Arterburn's books, "Every Man's Battle" and "Every Young Man's Battle" many times. My husband has read them and found them to be both relevant and realistic, however, "Every Young Woman's Battle" was shocking to us. Here's why. First of all, yes, teens are engaging in all kinds of promiscuous sexual activity and they need to be educated clearly on their choices and the consequences. And girls are sexually active at a very comparable rate to their male counterparts. And yes, someone needs to tell the truth about sex to teens if his or her parents are not going to do it. We completely believe that parents should educate themselves and have frank conversations about sex with their teens, and sometimes it is beneficial to use a book as a resource. But this book is not for everyone or every girl. If we're honest here, boys are typically very different than girls in their conversations about sex. They often use slang derogatory terms in "locker room" conversations. Girls tend to be a little more reserved with their blunt sexual talk and spend more time talking about sex from an emotional more romantic standpoint because no matter how you slice it, girls and boys are very different emotionally. I had purchased this book for my daughter to read, trusting that the differences in girls and how they discuss sex would be taken into account. My 13-year-old daughter opened the book to read the first few chapters, and in just a few pages she was introduced to sexual slang terms and graphic stories that she had never been exposed to before. Our children do not attend public school, and this may be the talk of the day today for girls in that arena, but the language in the book was over the top. Our daughter, at age 13, was given a purity ring, which she asked for as a birthday gift. Her purity and modesty are very important to her. She has pursued them, and she's worked hard, and so have we, to maintain her pure heart and mind. What was so disappointing was that in just a few short pages some of that purity was blemished by the stories and examples that were given and the language that was used, not to mention the graphic definitions of the words provided at the bottom of the page. This book might be beneficial to some groups of young women, but not to be trusted for every teenage girl. My recommendation would be that before exposing your daughter to any book, you read it in its entirety first and that you weigh where your daughter is in her own ideas regarding sex and exposure to the topic before letting her read any book. I believe this book should be for college age girls and single women and not for High School girls unless they are already extremely sexually active.

Decidi comprarle este libro a mi hija de 13 aos,como madre siempre trato de educarla en cuanto las batallas de este mundo,pero,la realidad es que nuestros jovenes se agotan facilmente de nuestras repeticiones y pense que este libro era una buena idea, les digo que es el mejor libro que puedes comprar.Por supuesto que lo revise primero,tiene un contenido muy real y fuerte ,pero creeme que cuando yo estaba en la secundaria aprendi muchas cosas que papi ni mami me dijeron,creo que este libro es excelente ,mi hija le encanto y es mas cuidadosa en cuanto se viste ,habla y sus amistades. Yo desearia haber leido este libro para mi cuando yo era joven,tiene tanta informacion y comprueba su comtenido con la palabra de Dios.Toda joven deberia leer este libro ,de ser asi creo que satanas estuviera perdiendo muchas batallas.Aprendi tanto para mi que decidi comprar tambien -la batalla de cada mujer.Lo recomiendo - 5 estrellas.

Este es un libro hermoso, para toda joven que quiera santificarse y purificarse a Dios y a su futuro esposo. Tambien para toda joven que ha cometido errores y que quiera empezar a santificarse nuevamente.<br /><br />This is an awesome book for every young lady who wants to be holy and remain pure for God and your future husband. Also for every young lady who make mistakes and wanted to be pure again.
