Overview

At two, she only wears dresses because she's a princess like the ones on TV. At six, she wants the trendiest, scantily clad doll because all her friends have it. At eight, she's begging for makeup because she wants to be pretty like the teen superstars.

Your daughter has every opportunity to be independent and confident--if only you could help her tune out the rest of the world! But can you really deny your little girl dresses, cartoons, and friends until she is out of danger?

Child and adolescent psychologist Dr. Jennifer L. Hartstein has good news: you don't have to! Her unique program teaches you to curb the world's influence on your daughter--without making her live in a bubble. In this debut book, Dr. Hartstein teaches you to:

  • Encourage your daughter to pursue her passion with industry and intelligence
  • Establish high but realistic expectations of your daughter and her future
  • Provide context for problematic influences--from the media to prissy peers
  • Build a mutual trust that will withstand her adolescent growing pains
With this plan, you can bring balance, confidence, and self-sufficiency into your daughter's life without denying her a modern, vibrant childhood.

    Princesses.
    You know who I mean. Those young women who haven’t realized that we aren’t playing dress-up anyone. The ones who must look perfect – pearls and plastered makeup – before going out for the mail. The girls who are waiting for someone to ride up on a horse and rescue them. The girls who refuse to allow others to see their intelligence because it’s not ladylike.

    Don’t let your daughter fall into this trap! Grab this book and learn how to help her – and hopefully others – avoid the Princess Syndrome and instead become a heroine.

    Hott Review
    A terrific resource for parents of little girls. We all know how hard it is to stop the ‘Princess Syndrome’ once it’s started but we aren’t positive how to help our daughters – and other girls in our lives – overcome this rampant philosophy.

    While I didn’t agree with everything the good doctor wrote, I really feel that this book will be a terrific resource as we propel our daughter through her formative years.
