Raise secure, confident kids in a gender-confused world
From the moment someone first asked "Boy or girl?" every childs identity is tied to his or her gender. But how that identity fully takes shape depends greatly on the influence of their parents and what they teach their children about the innate value of being male or female.
In this eye-opening book, family researcher Glenn T. Stanton offers a clear vision for why gender matters in how we raise our children. His thought-provoking insights expose the problems with stifling stereotypes and damaging cultural assumptions, then highlight a practical pathway for guiding children into healthy manhood and womanhood.

· how to help your daughter become secure in her sense of significancewhether she prefers chasing butterflies or shooting hoops.

· what you can do on a daily basis to nurture your childrens God-given design and help them resist the pressure to conform to arbitrary cultural rules.
