Book Review - Enough: 10 Things We Should Tell Teenage Girls #dadchat #giveaway
About the Book
You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough.
In a book based on her run-away blog post "Ten Things I Want to Tell Teenage Girls,” which garnered more than 2 million views in two weeks, Kate Conner calls us to action in Enough. We all have teenage girls in our lives who we love, whether it’s a sister, friend, or daughter. Kate has identified 10 things these girls need to hear today from someone who loves her.
Peppered with wit and laced with grace, Kate’s list tackles relevant issues like Facebook, emotions, drama, tanning beds, modesty, and flirtation. Woven into each chapter is a powerful message of worth that transcends age, and will touch the souls of women, young and old alike: You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough.
A former youth-worker, wife to a college minister, and a young mom in her twenties, Conner stands squarely in generational gap, the perfect place from which to bridge it. Conner offers herself as a translator, helping you to speak your teenager’s language and equipping you with a fresh perspective from which to engage your teenage girl—one that may enable her to truly hear your heart (and your wisdom) for the first time since puberty.
My Take on the Book
This was a well written book that combines great insights with fun, laughter, humor and wit. The book is written to parents to help them better understand their teenage daughters, and let me tell you, as a father of two girls, her advice is most welcome. I found her insights to be sage and things that I think I may even be able to start considering as my oldest hits her tween years. The book is an engaging read and I found myself wanting and needing to read more as it opened my eyes to many things that I had yet to consider for myself. I highly recommend this for all parents of girls, even if they have not yet hit their teens!
