Description

Why do girls giggle so much? Why does everything have to be pink? Why are they so scary once they hit puberty? How can I stop her from marrying an idiot? The father's guide to the female mind-field. Why do girls giggle so much? Why does everything have to be pink? Why are they so scary once they hit puberty? How can I stop her from marrying an idiot? All this and more is revealed, with some surprising conclusions about what we think we know about the differences between girls and boys, and taking a few bulls by the horns along the way. With practical examples and case studies to help all fathers raising girls, there's particular comfort for single fathers worried about the lack of women in their daughters' lives. Whether you're a dad, a harassed grandparent, or a guardian raising girls who may not be your daughters but are your girls all the same, this book's for you. And mums will find it handy as well.
If you want effective strategies instead of platitudes, real solutions instead of catchphrases, and a book with chapters on 'What dads want', 'Girl-talk: communicating with the other side', 'Mean girls - the new cult of bitchiness', 'Every dad's nightmare: sex, drugs, and parties', 'Puberty - it's not as scary as it seems' and 'How to be a cool dad', then welcome to the real world of raising girls. Respected clinical psychologist, bestselling author, and father of two, Nigel Latta specializes in working with children with behavioural problems, from simple to severe. A regular media commentator, he has had three television series adapted from his books - BEYOND THE DARKLANDS, THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT PARENTING SHOW and THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO TEENAGERS (all of which screen in New Zealand and Australia) - and has a regular parenting segment on National Radio.
