Despite its subtitle, this book has remarkably little practical advice to offer on raising girls and is considerably discouraging than encouraging Bringing Up Girls is primarily a social commentary on the decadence of modern society, the ill effects of feminism, and the challenges facing girls As a social commentary, it profusely quotes other often superior social commentaries I have already read, including the writings of Wendy Shalit, Dr Grossman, and Michelle Malkin There is scarce original [...]
You know that question If there is one person you could have coffee with who would it be My person would indubitably be Dr James Dobson I can t give Dobson enough praise for this highly insightful and brilliantly researched book Childrearing is a daunting endeavor however, with practical wisdom and a strong foundation in the Lord, it doesn t seem as overwhelming I m so very appreciative to Dobson for taking the time to write this book
I loved this book Some may consider it radical and caught in the olden days, but I think it is necessary and challenging and a call for us to take our role as parents seriously, recognizing the great privilege and responsibility that it is I pulled so many great things from this book and will be coming back to it as my daughter continues to get older.
James Dobson has certainly written a helpful book Bringing Up Girls brings together the best of research concerning trends that affect girls today as well as timeless truth about the need for parent to be, well, parents to their girls.As a father I was especially interested to read what Dobson had to say about the role of fathers in the raising of their girls I was not disappointed, but was challenged to be a better father because of this book Dads, we are needed in our homes and we are needed b [...]
I was very skeptical about this book from the start I basically read it so I would be able to talk knowledgeably about why I disliked it But what I discovered was that despite some major issues with Dr Dobson s book, there are still a few parts that were so insightful I think they make it worth reading.My main complaint about this book is that Dr Dobson narrows down morality to whether or not a girl has premarital sex if she does, she s immoral and if she doesn t she s moral This, in my opinion, [...]
MY REVIEW The title of this book pretty much sums up the overall point of this book bringing up Girls I, along with many other parents of girls, desire to know how best to raise our daughters, especially during those moments of drama, emotions, and crying that even us grown up girls just don t get.Dr Dobson presents the basic make up of a girl both emotionally and physically which aids you in better understanding what girls are experiencing at the various stages they go through Through out this [...]
This is a very comprehensive book on raising Christian girls in today s world Dr Dobson addresses many issues, including teaching girls to be ladies, purity, how to protect our daughters from technology, and the importance of both mother and father to a girl He cites a lot of research, gives anecdotal evidence, and quotes from other sources to support his ideas This book gave me a lot to think about and things for my husband and I to discuss, once he reads it, pertaining to our own girls I reall [...]
I m a collector of parental literature I love being a parent and I love the scientific method There are answers to most of our problems in books, including those we run into with our babies So I read multiple books and try multiple methods until I find something that works for me and for my daughters This book, however, was God awful pun intended Didn t finish it So much of what he says annoys me And his harping on sex, sex, sex is bothersome too Super chauvinistic I wish someone had told me how [...]
I wanted to like this book a lot But it fell short of my expectations I do like Dobson and have participated in some of his child development discipline instructing children studies The strength of the book is in the data and information about the cultural landscape our daughters face and how they can and will be affected by media, promiscuity, etc, but there is not a great deal of practical advice More like keep your eyes open parents.I prayed that God would show me what to glean from this book [...]
Some people thought that Dr Dobson s format was not the greatest I kind of wonder if these people have ever read a self help book before, because his format advice, stats, personal stories, etc was common for this type of book My favorite part was the technology section Thanks to him I now know about options to protect my daughters from inappropriate footage on TV and in movies Where was this technology when Twilight came out Because my step daugher is obsessed with it and it is VERY inappropri [...]
Bah If you want to be terrified of our hypersexualized culture and what it means for girls, read this book I felt like most of the book focused on what s between girls legs, than what was in her head and heart If you missed sex ed and need to be reaquainted with hormones and what happens during puberty, read this There were some good messages in here about the importance of a strong, loving, affectionate father the impact he has on a developing girl A good reminder for me on the importance of fi [...]
I liked some of it A lot of what I liked was quotes from other authors I wish there was meat, and not so much of this is the world your girls are living in I wanted specific ideas on how to raise my daughters better than I already am I didn t get a lot of that.
I ve been wanting to read this book since it was released and now that I ve read it I m glad that I did I m not going to say that I agree with everything in this book Dr Dobson seems to think dating is the only way a girl is going to meet her future husband, but this is only going to lead to heartache and having different pieces of her heart being given away before she truly marries There is a lot of good information in this book, and to me it doesn t matter if Dr Dobson quotes other sources or [...]
I have long respected Dr Dobson for his wisdom and knowledge concerning the well being of families I ve admired his writings and ministry since before I was ever married or had my own children He is a resource I always turn to when concerned with any aspect of marriage, parenting or family matters.Many years ago, I purchased Bringing Up Boys I had two of my own and one step son at the time I now have three of my own, and my step son is grown and on his own I loved the book and the insight into t [...]
I wanted to like this book than I did I m not a huge Dobson fan, for various reasons, but he s at his best when he sticks to child develoment issues That is, after all, where he is educated and has his professional experience The book is the strongest when it is giving the physiological background for why girls behave the way they do at different ages, and some of the tips on how to help your daughter through difficult transitions are very useful It is, in a way, written for dads than moms, pr [...]

Bringing Up Girls by Dr James C Dobson I wish this book had been written decades ago with my oldest daughter Since then, I have had four daughters.Recently, I have become a single mom, just divorced, and it scares the heck outta me that my girls have lost their father figure Bringing Up Girls has many chapters about the father and daughter relationship such as discussing the importance of why dads matter in their daughters life With my recent divorce it has frightened me that my girls no longer [...]
The premise for this book is explained in the title It s a book about raising your daughter in a changing world The world around us is becoming addicting and dangerous for our daughters and this book is supposed to show us how to navigate through this.Let me start off by saying that I m a fan of Dr Dobson and enjoyed his book Bringing Up Boys This book, however, is incredibly long and filled with facts and data about our society and its depravity Some of the information seems pretty dated even [...]
I Loved the book I can t believe the low ratings on this excellent book If you are a Christian parent trying to raise your kids with Christian values then you d definitely want to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading it We try to raise our daughter from a Christian perspective and this book is a must read full of information and practical ideas for the Christian parents I read it twice already to refresh my memory and our girl is only 9 still We have Dr James Dobson s other book Bringing Up Bo [...]
An excellent resource long awaited after his book Bringing Up Boys As expected, Dr James Dobson discusses the parenting of girls from a strong Christian perspective He discusses both the physical changes found in raising a daughter as well as the psychological changes sometimes much like land mines one must traverse This book delves even into how best to confront the mean girl situations that inevitably arise Further, he emphasizes the importance of the father daughter relationship in the equati [...]
This book was life changing for me I felt free to be a female after I read this Everything in this book is true and I always knew it but fought it off for various reasons having to do with my upbringing and it was so freeing to hear, from a Christian Psychologist, that who I am is the way God made me and it s good , and should be embraced.This book will be required reading for any man who wants to marry me To ensure he understands and treats me, as well as our future daughter s right
I wish, wish, wish that I loved this but I hate it I m half way through and have to give myself a pep talk each time before I pick it up I m going to try I m going to be open minded bla bla bla7 26 2011 Still hating this 10 18 12 To be truthful, I never finished I was only half way through when we moved and I have thankfully never found it Done and Done.
I ve only read the first chapter, but I ve put it down because it s full of emotionally charged words that is intended to scare than educate I d prefer a rewrite of this book that is factual than emotional, because I do think there is good information there that s buried and somewhat exaggerated.
Perhaps I m just over Dobson s writing style, but the the transcripts of radio interviews and quotes from other books are way overdone There s actually little practical advice in this book and as it becomes a collection of everything else that s already been written about raunch culture and protecting our children from it I was pretty much just bored the whole way through and skimmed a lot.
Practical advice, touching stories Nothing shocking or new Still a good read an one any parent to a 8 year old girl should read.
Practical advice, lots of positive suggestions, lots of statistics.
This review will appear in the Journal for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood James Dobson s Bringing Up Boys, published in 2001 by Tyndale House, proved to be so informative and helpful to parents in the raising of their sons, that many fathers and mothers of daughters wondered when the companion volume on raising girls would be published Ten years later, Dobson finished Bringing up Girls, and it will no doubt prove to be beneficial to all who read it.Dobson, the founder and president emeritus of F [...]
This was a good, general book about how to raise girls in a Christian home and the information that parents would need to do so.I have nothing negative to say about this book It was not super heavy it was easily readable It brought up lots of good topics to do further research on.Each chapter was about a specific topic about girls I gave it 4 stars because at the end of each chapter, I was wanting proof evidence for certain claims, information on the topic, recommendations to varied, other bo [...]
When it comes to family psychology, there is perhaps no other name well known among conservative evangelicals than Dr James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family Ten years after publishing his popular book on parenting boys, Dobson has penned the companion book, Bringing Up Girls In it, Dobson offers advice and insight from a clearly conservative viewpoint Speaking mainly to fathers, Dobson addresses issues such as femininity, beauty, sex, bullying, education and purity Much of the book addres [...]
Much of my views about this book is similar to my views on it s predecessor, Bringing Up Boys I thought that was a good book with some good info for parents, especially fathers Without repeating all I said in that review, I ll say that this in many ways is very similar in its strong words for fathers and advice for parents to stay close to their kids The biggest difference is obviously there is a lot advice about specifically raising girls I thought it was very helpful and offered some great th [...]
