Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The title of this book is well chosen, for it is quite literally a toolbox for educating girls from preadolescence through young adulthood. It is written to help girls discover, cherish, and act upon a sense of personal responsibility, and to empower them in making ethical choices. The authors identify an "inner support system called the Connected Inner Guide" and present practical tools and sensible approaches for helping girls learn and grow. Naturally, the authors advocate family structure, unconditional love, and reasonable boundary setting, but what makes this book especially effective are the specific strategies for recognizing and addressing problems that inevitably arise. Several useful paradigms of the emerging adult personality are identified and used to describe the maturing process. Competing inner voices, for example, ranging from the "Toxic Inner Critic" to the "Comforter" affect girls' decision making, and the authors use these models to describe productive and positive ways in which adults can influence girls toward affirmative, deliberate choices. Several popular and proven authors, including Stephen Covey and Mary Pipher, are quoted. The book has many sidebars, checklists, generous paragraph headings, a detailed index, and an extensive bibliography, making it appropriate for close reading, browsing, or reference. Useful to parents, teachers, and the daughters themselves, Toolbox will guide readers to more productive and effective relationships with the young women in their lives. Index. Biblio. Source Notes.

    Very simple and informative

    As a future father of a teenage girl, this book taught me a lot about how to raise my daughter to be a confident and strong young woman. This book will come in handy soon, and I will be sure to read it again to touch up. This book seems to be written with rereading and touching up in mind. It has a comprehensive index, and is easy to navigate.

    Thoughtful, Practical, and Compassionate

    This book has some down to earth ideas for teaching how to make better decisions and infusing hope for all us parents. We need more back to basics books like this that offer time tested advice. I particularly enjoyed the innovative exercises at the back of each chapter. I loved it,I will be recommending it to my friends who are struggling through the teen years with their children. Thank you, thank you!

    Intelligently written in laymen┬┐s terms

    I think this book is a big help for parents of girls and even boys. This book was easy to get through and created great images and connections, illuminating some areas of the adolescent mind and spirit that were confusing to me. If I could only use two words to sum up this book, I would use Practical and useful.
