If you’re parents to a girl, there is a map of your future, and it’s all held in a single book, Raising Girls by Steve Biddulph. Read this book, and you might understand what I mean, then you can spend the next decades of your life in realising the truth in what I say.
No matter what age your daughter is, a babbling babe, a toddler, when in her most fragrant and curious years, or even about to come of age, you can find in this book the problems and obstacles that children and their parents may have at each of these stages. It elucidates on their needs and how to get across these road bumps smoothly, how to prevent problems or guide them through them back into the right direction, and then how to make up for it.
