A must have for moms with daughters.....

Ok, I have a 15 yr old daughter and that's not an easy thing in today's society. I was very pleased to find a new resource. Help Wanted covers every area (that I can think of)in which our daughters need direction. I just had an argument with my daughter the day the book arrived and was feeling a little lost and a little icky. I skipped around and read different chapters that applied to my circumstances at the moment and was pleasantly surprised. I came away with some very practical things to use in our relationship, but I was also encouraged just by reading some of the stories. Sometimes a parenting book will make a mom feel totally incompetent, but this does not do that at all, it actually made me feel empowered. This is a book I will refer to often in the next few years, I can guarantee that. Highly recommended.
