As a pediatrician, Dr. Meg Meeker has seen thousands of girls come through her office through the years. They struggle with eating issues, sexual identity, social media…and many other challenges in this toxic culture. Dr. Meeker will encourage parents to invest love and time in their daughters and develop their character to give them the best opportunity for a bright future, all rooted in a spiritual foundation. The discussion also includes healthy feminism vs. toxic feminism.
Parents have never had a tougher job than now. Our culture bombards our daughters with unhealthy role models, misleads them about the consequences of early sexual activity, and even adds to the confusion of adolescences by encouraging them to question their “gender.”
Meg Meeker has been a pediatrician for more than thirty years, is a mother and a grandmother, and has seen it all. She knows what makes for strong, happy, healthy young women—and what puts our daughters at risk. Combining that experience with her famous common sense, she explains the eleven steps that will help your daughter—whether she’s a toddler or a troubled teen—to achieve her full human potential.
In this book, you will learn:
- The four biggest questions every daughter has—and that you must answer
- Why it’s the quality, not the quantity, of your daughter’s friends that matters
- The essential, complementary roles that mothers and fathers play
- The dangers of social media—and how to help your daughter navigate them
- What every daughter needs to know about God
- Why depression is often a “sexually transmitted disease”
- How to launch your daughter into successful womanhood
If you have a daughter, and worry about her future, you need Dr. Meg’s advice.
