Your Daughter Needs a Hero
Helping Her Handle Insecurity and Poor Body Image
by Maria C. Furlough
I'll never forget the very first time I looked in the mirror and thought I was fat. I was nine years old and spending my Saturday afternoon like I always did, locked in my room with a Teen Bop magazine.
This specific Saturday would forever change the way I looked in that mirror.
Reading my magazine, a picture of Tiffany Amber Thiessen stood out to me. I looked in the same mirror that had brought so much joy and entertainment, and I thought, I don't look like her. I am not as skinny as she is. And that was it. From then on, I was ruined. The realization hit me like a ton of bricks: I don't look like the girls in the magazines.
What drives teenage girls? What tempts them? What tugs on their heart strings? More importantly, what can parents do to make a difference in their lives? Author Maria Furlough battled self-image and self-esteem issues as a teenager, and in Your Daughter Needs You; Helping Her Handle Insecurity and Poor Body Image, using a mix of personal stories and years of experience counseling teenage girls in her youth ministry, she shows parents what their teenage daughters are going through and how to best help them.
Furlough explains how fad diets, the media, and pornography influence a teen girl's body image, and she guides parents on how to counteract the constant pressures and influences that effect teen girls every day. This book will show parents how to effectively build their daughter's self-esteem and self-image. If you have a teenage daughter, Your Daughter Needs a Hero; Helping Her Handle Insecurity and Poor Body Image is a must read!
