A POWERFUL NEW BOOK FROM STEVE BIDDULPH

Steve Biddulph writes: '10 Things Girls Need Most is a revolution. For 40 years I've worked with parents in groups - and it is so much fun and so moving that I would love to do that with every parent in the world. But I can't! So 10 Things Girls Need Most aims to be the next best thing. This is a special kind of book. You can read it straight through and get great ideas for raising your daughter. But it also offers something extra that can give you so much more. On many pages you will find opportunities to interact. These are very simple - just a list to tick, or a couple of questions to respond to. These interactive tasks immediately get you thinking about your own life, your family and, of course, your daughter. 10 Things Girls Need Most is a dual gift. It provides the very best information that we have about girls growing up today - and, alongside, are interactive tasks and self-exploration practices will help you to put that into practice. '

How does the content differ from Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls?

SB: 'This is a whole new book on girls, and it has grown out of years of online discussions which have gone deeper and further than much of the coverage in Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls. It is a reflection of the issues that parents want to explore in more depth. Many of these are new.'

Why is this called an interactive companion to Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls?

SB: 'We found that parents were keen to share their experiences and concerns online. So this new book includes opportunities for parents to consider topics with more depth, courtesy of the reader-response style. The interactivity is a totally new concept. Focus groups have found it quite profound - as there are opportunities for the reader to respond to questions in the text. In this way it is a companion to Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls, exploring many of the same areas but with the added dimension of parent involvement and response to the questions.

Steve Biddulph says: 'The aim of this book is twofold. Firstly, to help you understand how daughters grow and thrive, and to be confident in raising your own. To lay down the foundations of good mental health early in your daughter's life, and to keep her strong all the way through. And secondly, to enlist you in the new wave of feminism, fighting against a world that is so toxic to our kids.'

'We have the potential to change the world our daughters face. Girls are being exploited. We need to challenge the companies worldwide that profit from making girls insecure and compliant through manipulative marketing.

'This book helps parents understand how we can win back girlhood - happy, wild and free. It's the core of individuality and self-belief - and is the new feminism that we want for our daughters.

'It tackles the most important mental health risk in the world today - the harm that is being inflicted on girls and young women. The exploitation of it starts with babyhood and rockets through primary school and into the teens.'
