Speaking from experience it is hard for a parent to understand just how fast their children specially daughters grow up these days, more than that with all the pressure children and teens have on them from school, TV and the internet it is even harder for a parent to understand just what their child is going through.
My guest today Maria C Furlough knows exactly the sort of issues one comes up against, not just from her own experiences growing up but also with the young woman she meets and helps at her ministry.
Though she started writing when young and knew that her chosen path would lead her to share her thoughts and believes with others, it was not until after the birth of her first child that she finally decided she had to put all these feelings and thoughts onto paper.
Four years and two more children later her book “Your Daughter Needs a Hero” is out and proving to be a source of enlightenment and understanding not only to your girl but more importantly to their parents as well.
About “Your Daughter Needs a Hero” (Taken from Pump Up Your Book Promotions)
What drives teenage girls? What tempts them? What causes their insecurities? More importantly, what can parents do to make a difference in their lives? Author Maria Furlough battled self-image and self-esteem issues as a teenager, and in Your Daughter Needs a Hero she uses a mix of personal stories and years of experience counseling teenage girls in youth ministry to show parents what their teenage daughters are going through and how best to help them.
Furlough explains how things such as fad diets, the media, and pornography influence a teen girl’s body image, and she guides parents on how to counteract the constant pressures and influences that affect teen girls every day. This book will show parents how to effectively build their daughter’s self-esteem, self-image, and, most importantly, their faith in God and in their parents. If you have a daughter, Your Daughter Needs a Hero is a must read!
As one reviewer put it…
This insightful and inspiring book is a must for parents raising tween and teenage daughters. Maria touches your heart with her personal experiences which motivated her to write this book. Having raised girls myself, I am sorry I didn't have this book to help me be a better parent and to help instill the self worth that is so necessary and important for children to face the world as we know it today. God bless you Maria, for your vulnerability and courage in writing this wonderful primer for parents.
I totally agree with the part at the end stating that this is a must read, and I would add for mothers, fathers and daughters, in fact anybody.
