Book Reviews: Bringing Up Girls

Dobson, James. Bringing Up Girls: Practical Advice and Encouragement for Those Shaping the Next Generation of Women. Carol Stream, IL; Tyndale House Pub., 2010.

You know what this book reminds me of? It reminds me of syllabus day in college. You spent the first day of class reading the syllabus, and the rest of the afternoon panicking because there was no possible way you could get that all done.

Reading this book about everything that can go wrong, everything you should do, everything to keep on guard against, and it seems almost impossible.

The only upside is I've got the rest of her life to be a good dad. However, the downside is, I've got to be a good dad for the rest of her life. That's probably the scariest parts of this book.
He includes several women's reminisces about their fathers, and most of them include tiny little things, offhand remarks, that they've carried with them for years.

Good thing there are two parents.
