Five 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.

Really has helped me during my "OH NO!! My Daughters almost a teenager!!" panic. She touched on all the subjects that scare me. She has sound advice, plus I enjoyed her writting style. She doesn't ride the fence on issues, and I respect her for that!!

I will be leading a group studying this book and I think it is wonderfully written, full of up to date info for parents and teachers. Biblically based and as a mother of grown boys, I think it really hits the nail on the head. Loved it. Very helpful, would recommend to everyone. Also, pastor and his wife read it and really liked it.

Moms 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.

What a great resource! The world our daughters are growing up in is far different than the one we experienced as kids! Great advice for addressing current issues - some I didn't even know existed!

This book should be required reading for any concerned mother of girls. Vicki covers everything and then some. She offers treasures of wisdom that are priceless and the most important gifts we as mothers can give our daughters. Thank you Vicki Courtney for your inspirational leadership.
