Having read Steve Biddulph's book, Raising Boys, and finding it engaging and very useful, I thought that this book would be similar but it is not. I have 2 boys and 1 girl and, being a girl myself, I did not race off to read this book thinking that it was not necessary but having read Raising boysI picked this oe up aswell and was really dissapointed. It is full of nonsense! It is insulting really. Most of the points the book makes about how to raise happy girls' are so blatantly obvious that you wonder who on earth the book is aimed at and the rest of the points are pathetic, for example the "journey" you take your daughter 0on through her imagination and that all girls' like Horses and Dolphins. It is really just a waste of paper.
