I just finished reading You’re Grounded Forever…But First Let’s Go Shopping by Susan Shapiro Barash. This book is all about the challenges mothers face with their daughters and offers ten timely solutions.
As a mom of two boys and one girl, I came to the conclusion long ago that parenting a girl is NOT an easy task for me. I believe I was truly meant to be a mom to a brood of boys who fight, get dirty, and participate in sports like Football, Baseball and Rugby.
With my boys, I never second guess any decisions I make when parenting them. With my daughter however, I am always second guessing myself. I wonder if at times I am easier on her then I am with the boys.
I found this book very interesting and it helped me see a new side of things when it comes to my relationship with my daughter.
The book covers topics such as:
- Defending our Daughters
- Lacking Limits
- Encouraging a Material Life
- Being Critical of your Daughter’s Appearance
- Making too Much of Food and Dieting
- Romantic Lives
- Fostering Independence
The book includes personal stories from women of all walks of life and illuminates the complicated world of mothers and daughters.

This book is also available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, IndieBound, and BookAMillion.
