Susan Shapiro Barash’s provocative new book examines the most difficult challenges any woman faces when raising daughters: Are we spoiling them or being too rigid? Are we trying to be their friend or are we setting ourselves up as adversaries? Are we setting a good example, or are we a cautionary tale? In short, are we creating our own monsters? This book explores:
* “What color would you like that Prada bag in?” (Material indulgence)
* "Do you need to be eating that?" (Fixations on food and weight)
* "Of course you can drink when you're home with me." (Lacking boundaries and rules)
* "Your closest friends are your biggest rivals." (Underestimating female friendships)
* "I'll just say you aren't feeling well." (Making excuses)
* And much more
