Reassuring advice to help you and your daughter navigate these turbulent years

By Moira McCarthy with Mary E. Muscari, Ph.D., R.N.

Format: Paperback

One minute she's screaming that she hates you and the next moment she's crying on your shoulder-an adolescent girl is a contradiction in terms: half-child, half-woman, all hormones. Though she may try and push you away, this is the time in her life when she needs your guidance the most. With the expert advice in The Everything Guide to Raising Adolescent Girls, you'll be able to give her that direction and help her overcome the obstacles she may be facing.

This essential guide shows you how to handle such sensitive adolescent issues as:

  • Dating and sex
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Mean girls, cliques, and peer pressures
  • Self-esteem and confidence issues
  • Money and responsibilities
Like it or not, your daughter's life is changing and so is your relationship with her. Help her navigate this challenging life transition and equip her with the right tools to become a confident and happy woman!
