    1. This book had a few great ideas and suggestions. Written as a light read with a lot of references to the bible and Christian beliefs, it was written with the mindset of one mom giving another mom some words of advice. Here are my notes to remember from the book: #1 Give her the right doll to play withThe need for toys has been created by the industry. Kids don’t “need” anything to play with and they play best when all of their toys don’t define play for them. They will find props they ne [...]


    2. Reading this book proves true the saying "desperate times call for desperate measures." If parenting pre-teen daughters isn't a desperate time, I'm not sure what is. This book is the first parenting book I've read in my eleven years of parenting and it quickly reminded me of why I don't read parenting books. So many of them are written as if-then statements. If you do these things as a parent, then this will (or won't) happen. I believe that is, quite simply, a lie. Parenting is not an if-then s [...]


    3. How to keep your precious little daughter from being ruined by the culture and media and turning her into a Lady Gaga wanna-be. Common sense stuff like watching TV shows *with* your daughter and asking her evaluative questions to make her think ("Why does Hannah Montana never seem to wear the same clothes twice? Is this a good way to spend her money?") Helping her to realize what a precious and beautiful body she has by giving her a gift basket to help her celebrate the day of her first period a [...]


    4. This had some good ideas on how to stay connected to your daughter throughout childhood and tween life so that once she gets into puberty/teenage life, she's not falling into lots of trouble with boys and girl drama. Some of the arguments against certain practices or activities were weak, a bit ill-logical and most likely tied to her Christian philosophy (which I have no problem with and in fact, applaud!) But when discussing matters with (what you hope will be)an intelligent, upcoming child/tee [...]


    5. This was a totally random grocery store find but it turned out to be JUST what I was looking for (if you know what I mean) and I was intrigued through the whole thing. In many ways Dannah Gresh reaffirms much of what I'm already trying to do to keep my girls little and from growing up too fast. But she has some even more conservative views than I do, about dating etc. I thought this book was fantastic. She gives some really good talking points so that little girls can grow up with a really healt [...]


    6. Awesome book! I got some real, down-to-earth advice on how to protect and preserve my daughter in a world that wants to cheapen and exploit her. I feel well-armed and ready to face the battle of keeping her unplugged from society and plugged into God's Kingdom. Thanks, Dannah, for writing such a powerful guide for us mothers of daughters!


    7. This is a wonderful book! The introduction lays out a compelling vision for staying connected to our daughters, and the critical importance of laying specific foundations in the tween years. I love the age-appropriate guidance for beating "the culture" to the punch while still protecting her childhood. What an encouragement. I know many, many moms I will share this book with!


    8. I really like how straightforward and practical Dannah Gresh's writing is. This book had a lot of great suggestions for how to help your daughter enjoy her tween years without trying to grow up too fast.



    9. Very helpful and timely. I am so glad I read this book while my oldest is nine. I could have read it at eight! I loved everything about this book.



    10. Pretty meh. I'd love someone to write a book that doesn't demonize culture and promotes teaching our kids how to use discernment and wisdom as they interact with the culture we live in. This is not that book. I take responsibility for having the wrong expectation but I was disappointed nonetheless. I just don't think sequestering our kids from culture is the answer and that's what I walked away with after reading this book. There are some practical suggestions that I benefited from and appreciat [...]


    11. This book is a must read if you have a daughter or daughters. It is a great resource for bringing up your daughter in a Biblical manner in an unbiblical world. There are great pointers, tips, and ideas in here. It is truly spot on. I have been challenged by this book and consider it a great resource.


    12. Helpful advice for mothers of young girlsDannah Gresh certainly doesn't hold back about the many influences of the world that our young girls face. She gives much practical advice. If you are a mother of a tween, or better yet a daughter not yet a tween, I believe you will find this book very helpful.


    13. While there is definitely a strong Christian base to this book, it was helpful as a guide to help eight to twelve year old girls learn to celebrate their bodies and value themselves. I've already used some of the scenarios as a guide for talking to my own daughter. I think this is a practical book to approaching modesty despite peer pressure, dealing with the onslaught of media input and commercialism, and inspiring hope for a the future while establishing some reasonable dating "rules" and limi [...]


    14. Summary from B&N: Studies show that the foundation for an emotionally healthy teen girl is built between the ages of 8-12 and that a good relationship with mom is one of the most important factors. So when the world wants girls to grow up too fast, how does a mother help her young daughter navigate the stormy waters of boy-craziness, modesty and body image, media, Internet safety, and more? With a warm, transparent style, Dannah Gresh shares six ways a mom can help protect and guide her daug [...]


    15. This book has some ideas for mothers to connect with and teach their tweens which may be a good foundation before the teenage years arive. The title of the book does not indicate that the book is only for mothers, and the role of the father is ignored by the author.The key goal for the author is for girls to remain pure until marriage, however I found that point to be almost obsessively emphasized. Should a person be surprised that the biggest "risk factor" to premarital sexual activity is being [...]


    16. What a blessing to have this book! After having a little scare with a choice my eight year old was wanting to make I pulled this book off my shelf (Yes, I'm a nerd. I already bought this book way before I needed it). I was pleased to see the Biblical reasons for us to protect our daughters. I had feared that I may have put rules in place that were more legalistic than Biblical. After reading this book and seeing scriptures that I had forgotten about, I was encouraged by the choices I had made. I [...]


    17. My 8 year old has recently started asking some of the hard questions and not letting things go with just the most basic of answers. She has also started liking boys and asking about dating and kissing. I ordered this book and it has helped me realize that I am not alone. Little girls are growing up way to fast these days and it is our job as their mothers to help them grow up to be the women God wants them to be. It also helped me realize that I let them have too much screen time and that I need [...]


    18. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews. Or neighbor kids. Or if you teach Primary children. It seems to me that this is a good general resource book on helping children, particularly girls, NOT try to grow up too fast.The author is a Christian lady and she uses lots of Bible references. Definitely not KJV. Probably NIV. But that's OK, because she wants the kids to remain innocent or as innocent as possible as long as possible. She gives example [...]


    19. Eenh - some good ideas and suggestions. Her style is just so fluffy and somewhat out of touch with 'real' people. Or maybe I'm out of touch with current Christian culture. I was hoping for some depth. Not so much. There were some practical tips on resisting sexualization of children and steering them away from the areas of our culture that will rob their innocence. I am troubled by the chapter on wishing for a husband - it implies a spouse is expected and necessary. That is not biblical or healt [...]


    20. Great book to help you see the important role a mom has in guiding, mentoring, and nurturing their tween girl(s) (10-12 yr olds). Easy to read chapters that encourage you to think how you are intentionally raising your daughter to be pointed toward Christ and how to shield her from the world. There is no magical formula but encouragement to help you not allow your daughter to grow up too quickly. We live in a world that bombards our girls with sexual innuendos, perversion, an immodesty at such y [...]


    21. This is geared towards parents of tweens, but I decided to get a head start so I can mentally prepare myself for the teaching moments that lie ahead. Good advice for teaching girls about what they'll face during womanhood, without letting them grow up too fast. Let little girls be little for as long as you can! And when it's time, send them off prepared. The author is a Christian and the book is a little too religious & preachy (Bible quotes in each chapter, etc.) but if you can get past tha [...]


    22. Practical and fabulous thoughts on a society that encourages premature development of girls into women and how to keep those sweet girls "little" as long as possible. Gresh encourages total involvement on the parent's part, and drives home the point that little girls should be doing little girl things--role playing (pretending) at an early age and learning/playing along with mom into the older ages. This book is very helpful and a positive read for anyone who loves guiding little girls through t [...]


    23. When the world wants girls to grow up too fast, how do you help your daughter navigate boy craziness, modesty, body image, media, and Internet safety? The foundation for an emotionally healthy teen girl is built between the ages of 8 and 12. Mothers of tween girls can direct and guide their daughters by developing a close relationship with them. In Six Ways to Keep the Little in Your Girl, Dannah Gresh shares six ways to help you grow confident, godly young women. Also included is a quiz to test [...]


    24. This book is definitely going to be my guide through my daughter's tween and teen years. Keeping them on the right track can be a very scary and overwhelming mission in today's world and this book offers wonderful advice and a plan to help. I want to be able to do the best job as I can as a mother. At some point, it's all in God's hands but we have to be responsible for doing our part to guide these precious lives. Definitely a must read - and I would suggest as soon as possible in your daughter [...]


    25. Now that I have an eight year old, I want to communicate openly with her about all topics related to her growth and development. Dannah Gresh's book is filled with wisdom and encouragement for our journey. She gives specific examples for how to be your daughter's parent, not her friend, and maintain open communication. I am interested in reading her book on mommy/daughter dates, and plan to purchase it soon. Our culture seeks to take the innocence away from our girls at a young age, and I will b [...]


    26. Great Book! Didn't agree with everything, but most everything. I really appreciated all of the encouraging ways to keep an open communication with my daughter. One of the biggest encouragements I received was making sure you had parent/family connectedness. Families are so busy and they tend to go their separate ways alot, but Dannah encouraged putting family togetherness as a top priority. Her statistics were hard to swallow but they were logical. Highly recommend it if you have a daughter betw [...]


    27. This book was not quite what I was expecting or looking for at this point in my kids' upbringing. I didn't realize it was for parents of tween girls - I assumed it was for parents of little girls and offered tips on how to keep them little. Still, there's some useful advice in here on how to encourage modesty beginning right now, which I appreciated. I found it more Bible-centered than I expected it to be, and I'm not sure why my reaction to that was somewhat negative - basically only Christian [...]


    28. Fantastic book. It breaks down a lot of parenting issues that could represent big, scary, veering-off-the-right-path moments for kids, and points out some things that may not have occurred to mom and dad. It's not alarmist - assertions are supported with facts and figures, and there are common sense solutions backed up by scripture and studies. The material is very helpful in parent/child discussions, and the book encourages parents to ask questions more than they lecture, while still maintainin [...]
