Overview

For mothers with girls ages zero to eighteen, Five Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter is indeed a must-have book. In it, bestselling author and youth culture expert Vicki Courtney helps moms pinpoint and prepare the discussions that need to be ongoing from cradle to college so their daughters will know the truth about life before they believe the culture’s lies.

To fully address the dynamic issues and influencers at hand, several chapters are written for each of the conversations, which are:

1. You are more than the sum of your parts

2. Sex is great . . . and worth the wait

3. It’s OK to dream about marriage and motherhood

4. Don’t be in such a hurry to grow up

5. Girls gone wild are a dime a dozen—dare to be different

The book also includes invaluable tips on having each conversation across the various stages of development: five and under, six to eleven, twelve and up.

    Subliminal messages exposed!

    This book is a fantastic guide for those mothers confused by the daily doses of negativity our children face in an all to self servant world. What a great way to lead these girls back to self respect. Thank you Vicki for your time in research, raising children and helping us to surpass the lurking evils of our society. I loved it. I give this book five stars!

    Amazing!!!

    EVERY parent of a daughter should read this book!!! It is an honest and thought provoking book. It challenges parents to answer to God's standards & not the worlds. It is an easy read and has motivated me to be a better parent, set standards from an early age & protect my most precious gift from the Lord... my daughter! READ THIS BOOK!

    Are you a mother? Grandmother? Aunt? Father? Teacher? Coach?
    Then I’d suggest you read this book. As everyone knows, girls are absolutely different than anything you've ever dealt with — even if you were one yourself. Because of the culture that we have today there is a very slim margin for error in handling situations or even conversations with girls and young ladies.
    Take some time to learn the facts and some great insight into the lives and hearts of our next generation.

    Hott Review:
    A while back I reviewed Five Conversations You Must Have with Your Son. It was a great book but not nearly as scary as this one. Maybe it’s because the conversations we’re to have with are sons aren’t as heartbreaking, I don’t know, but this book really shook me. 
    I don’t think I made it through a page of this book without highlighting something and sharing it on facebook. I don’t know why things are so much worse than they were when I was a teen/preteen but I know that they are. Even in private schools with ‘good Christian kids’ not everyone has the same morals, standards, or even feelings about what constitutes right and wrong.
    I’ll be purchasing a physical copy of this book to loan out to my friends and using my digital copy as a daily resource and reminder. I also think that reading through some of these stats at prayer time would be great guidance.
